Fun Times with Wildlife

Greetings from Cape Cod, Massachusetts! We arrived at our cottage last night just after midnight. It was a LONG drive. Traffic in NY and CT was pretty bad. I think we are getting too old for this road trip thing. It was fun when we were 20, but now it has lost some of its appeal. I get tired and cranky and this morning I was so stiff. 10 hours in the car is just too much for me.

The cottage we are renting is lovely, quaint, and quiet. This morning I woke up early and saw a HUGE bird on the fence. At first I thought it was a decoy, but then I saw it move. I ran for my camera and went outside. I was able to get quite close to it. I sent the photos to Mike, as he is a bird expert, and he says it's a Red-Tailed Hawk. So cool! I had never been so close to such a large bird before.

My tummy has been acting up, so I am at the cottage resting while Steph has dinner with her family. On deck tomorrow is Danika's graduation ceremony and a party at Steph's parents' house.
