Off The Grid

For a National Geographic photographer, my excitement about the wildlife around here would probably seem over the top..  But, as I sit here typing, a seal swims past me.. He is right below me.. not in a zoo or on TV, below me.. If I opened the window I could hear him breathing… and I love it. If you grow tired of reading me talk about it.. you should probably find another blog to follow.

But I hope I never grow tired of finding it remarkable.. That 25 minutes, by plane from one of the largest cities and airports in Canada, I sit in peace and quiet and privacy with seals at my door.

At the end of the day, before the earlier (daylight savings) sunset we walked down the lane by SoHo and hung the motion sensored infrared camera on a tree beside Hudsons (the beaver) project.. It is almost ready to fall and we would love love love to catch it fall on film. We would even be thrilled to get the beaver in chewing action on the camera.

Today E worked on his project up the hill.  I raked leaves and worked on the layout for the newsletter. I made a gluten-free pasta dish last night that was great.. Tonight is my favorite meal.. leftovers!!  The work is already done… Only thing left to do is

pour the wine.
