I imagine Irene has made this landscape a little less peaceful over the past 2 days.

Bald Eagle

March 19, 2010

The first Bald Eagle I’d ever seen in my life…(in the wild that is)… It was pure chance (or maybe the universe working its’ magic) that we had just been talking about them, when he appeared…at first sitting on the sand bar as if to enjoy a day at the beach.  By the time I got my camera out, he had taken flight, but not before I captured this shot.  We were on the way home, nearly to our dock on the Julienton when he arrived.  The perfect end to yet another magical Blackbeard trip.

Pelicans at the Bar

While Granny and I hunted treasure…(surely it’s called Blackbeard for a reason)… these not-so-shy members of The Beach Patrol (as my father calls them) sunned on the bar.

I believe this to be a close shot of “Three Clumps of Trees”…but I’ll ask the captain to make sure.

Not yet…but when the weather improves.  In the meantime, finally getting around to documenting some of our trips.
