Still here!

It’s been a bit since I last posted, you may be wondering what has been keeping me so busy.  Well, I’ve been taking advantage of my location and enjoying music, hiking and kayaking.  Milford had a music festival last weekend, and the band called “Merchants of Groove” were a big hit.  The audience had a (sort of) Frank Zappa look-alike, and we all tapped our feet to the great beats.

The trombonist stepped away from the stage to serenade passing motorists and walked through the audience.

We sat and sketched the view, but decided next time we’d return with small seats to avoid snakes. While we’re not afraid of them, we did see 2 black rat snakes on the trail, one was 3’ long. It’s possible this one that looked curly was in fact full of eggs! Black rat snake
Here’s my sketch result of the day, made on site, color added later.

Finally, kayaking under a full moon was most enjoyable! At least, until a bat swooped a little too close! 😮 A marvelous night 🎶 (⬅️click link to see a short video) Full moon kayak night
