I got lucky in the in-law department. And today my sister-in-law Brenda and her daughter Lisa were to visit in Bar Harbor, Maine while on a New England cruise. We all took the day off so we could see them. It wasn't enough time, really, but it was some time, and that was a gift.
The weather? PERFECT. I took my camera out to the back yard along with a good book and a cold drink. Caught a few images to illustrate the afternoon...
Bravo turned an empty sour cream container into a fun toy, then posed for a handsome new close up shot of his little face.
In the pasture, the ducks chased bugs and gobbled up the seed heads on the grass.
As the sun got lower in the sky, Chris grilled up a marvelous supper.
I caught movement out of the corner of my eye. Something red and fast in the meadow.
It truly was a magical day.
