Ross Farm

Yesterday was the first time we visited Ross Farm during the winter. It's well worth the effort.

Frosty Day

It looks very cold out there today. I don't feel like role playing Scott of the Antarctic.

These whelks climb into the fishermen's lobster traps. Our neighbour boils the snails , removes the innards and fries them up in butter.

Let me out.

The snow is falling and the chickadees are at the feeder. I gotta go out... I'll behave.... I promise.
