Cormorants from St Michael’s Manor in St. Mary’s County.  They were very far away, and my focus was off a little, but I liked the reflection...

A Day Trip to Kent Island

Jim wanted to go see the boat show, a long trip by himself.  I went along to help drive and spent the day visiting the local Kent Island parks with pur toy poodle Sarita.  I had sore feet, but it was lovely to get away for the day after my mother's recent death on Easter day.

Cherry Blossom Festival ArtsPark Photos

really enjoyed myself at the Cherry Blossom Festival.  I made some new friends and caught up with some friends I already know.

Here are some photos of the Cherry Blossoms from March 25th 2017.  It is so hard to predict when they will bloom.

Sarita was in the dog costume parade.  She tied for first place for best costume.  I brought 3 costumes with me, since I wasn't sure what the temperature would be and asked my friend, Nell to pick which one she liked best.  Sarita was a cute bride, even if she tried to take off her veil a few times.  She posed in her bridal costume with SMAWLIE, the mascot for the St. Mary's Animal Welfare League.
