It didn't snow and it didn't rain, but it didn't "sun" much either, so the following photos are not vivid at all.
Before I left home, I noticed Mr. Skulky neighbourhood cat checking out the back and the front before loping off. He checked all the spots where birds hang about and then left! He has a bit of "I mean business" look in those eyes, don't you think?
After a two hour drive, I arrived at my destination and spotted some preening black cormorants adorning the pilings. It was difficult to get a photo of them with their heads up!
These gulls were much more co-operative!
Although this particular Condo was beyond my "lifestyle change", the scenery fit the bill very nicely!
At the end of the day my spirits were buoyed and the setting sun lent lightness to the distant clouds.
