We're trying to take advantage of some of the few fall days that are left before winter starts, by taking more walks on the Canal, whenever Russell feels up to it.
Our first one was exactly one month after I took him home. I'm so proud of how hard he's working on getting well and so relieved that he's making progress. Despite the clouds, this was a fairly warm day...we were comfortable in shorts and jackets.
The love of my life.
Next time we walked at the Canal was in Sandwich, a few days later.
Then one night out of nowhere he goes, 'Wanna go down to the Canal?' I was in my jammies and watching TV but I checked the marine traffic website and saw that a car carrier ship was about to enter our end so we threw on some clothes and went down about 6:30. It's much darker than these pics show because the shutter was open longer, so when I was walking towards the water, the ship blew it's horn as it approached the bridge. It was coming in so quietly that I jumped out of my skin! I had no idea it was THAT close.
Beautiful full moon that night and this was the best pic I was able to get of it.
We also went down to the beach near our house for a short walk.

This was another late afternoon suggestion to head down the Canal for a walk. It was much chillier but we were unprepared for the cold wind on the water. We lasted about 5 minutes before getting back in the car!

We drove over to Mass Maritime so I could get a few more shots....Russell wisely stayed in the car.
A whole bunch of seagulls and cormorants were floating along on the current and diving for fish.
We probably only have a few more halfway decent days to walk before he'll have to join Planet Fitness and use the treadmill!
Beautiful photos. I hope the weather stays nice so you can continue to enjoy walking outdoors.ReplyDelete
Thanks Martha! It's started to get super cold, with wind, so we'll see what he is up for. He gets colder cause of the blood thinners.Delete
Really beautiful photography. We were in the States some years ago and stayed at Chatham, Cape Cod for a couple of nights. Loved it!ReplyDelete

That's so cool you were in Chatham! It's soooooo pretty there!!Delete
So glad Russell is up to these walks. Nice to know he is recovering so well. Great pix as usual JoJo. I love to see all the boats. We got snow overnight!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jo! eeek snow?! I'm not ready for that although it's pretty cold. And yes, he's getting there. He's been feeling really good.Delete
As always, splendid photos. Encouraging to note that Russell is coming along nicely.
Nothing like a good walk and some invigorating exercise. I mean, what the heck, I went and bought one of those vibrating machines just so I could watch my belly doing some jiggling! LOL
Take care and here's to you both having a nice weekend.
OMG vibration belt machines. lmao I remember those from the 60s and 70s, they often popped up as a sight gag in sitcoms of that era. hahahaDelete
sailboats just speak of dreams and fresh air and a breeze. Glad you could get in such calm time and beach effect. Great pics - your night time photo is excellent, even with the blare of the horn. Continued progress!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Joanne! We're getting there! It's nice to get out and walk. It's been a very long, long summer and fall.Delete
The days are so short. It's difficult to get anything done. Or to go anywhere and get back in time to feed the foxes before they think you are going to starve them...ReplyDelete
I love the shorter days. I prefer standard time. I just don't like the cold weather.Delete
Glad to hear that Russell is on the mend. Bayberrys for making candles. Hmmm. Interesting. I'm going to have to look up how to do that. It sounds like a fun project.ReplyDelete
I don't really remember how we did it....just that we picked the berries, cooked them down somehow and then dipped the wicks over and over in the bayberry wax till we had taper candles. I was probably 9 at the time.Delete
