Robin is a photographer, artist, writer, wife, sometime poet, mom, grandma, daughter, sister, friend, and occasional traveler currently living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She finished a 365 commitment to get outside every day in 2011, and has turned it into a lifelong commitment taking one or more walks each day. Robin will continue to share her walks through her words and images on Breezes at Dawn. Older posts can be found at Life in the Bogs, her previous blog. Robin and her husband are in the midst of renovating the house and property they refer to as the Wabi-Sabi Ranch, 35 acres that include marsh, a dock on a tidal creek, meadows, and woodlands. Every day brings new discoveries.

    Being drawn to a meander through the SW region… hoping the desert is in bloom! 😀 Will be gone AGAIN for a good while.

  2. These look sort of different than the osprey my brother has on his lake in Alabama…but then, I only see those birds from very far away, so maybe they are not that different at all.

    1. This was my first close encounter with them, Dawn, so I’m not at all sure what they look like in general or regionally. Bet they’re beautiful everywhere. 🙂


    1. Thank you, Merril. 🙂 This was a lucky long series of shots that happened because M and I chose a great place to eat and there was no seating in the dining room so we ended up sitting at the bar. The ospreys, whose names are Lucy and Ricky, have been nesting outside the dock of this restaurant for eight years according to the bartender. I’ve never minded eating at the bar (rather than in the dining room), but in this case, I was particularly happy about it.

    1. I hope so by now, Eliza. 🙂 This shot was taken after the male made several unsuccessful attempts. He was proud of himself each time, as males tend to be. lol! I’ll try to post some shots tomorrow of his practice flights to join with his mate. Humans have it so much easier. Well, sometimes we do. Sometimes we don’t. And maybe it all involves flight and correct landings in some metaphorical way.

  3. Driving in to work this morning past the mouth of the lagoon at Torrey Pines Beach I watched an Osprey hunting over the waters. I get to see one nearly every day this way. Was even treated to one eating his dinner as I was on an evening walk near my house. Guess he snagged his fish and decided he should fly inland a little bit to get away from annoying sea gulls! I was just thrilled!


Comments are delightful and always appreciated. I will respond when I can (life is keeping me busy!), and/or come around to visit you at your place soon. Thank you!
