It's always fun to see what all you T Gang people have been up to.
My husband and I had our 30th wedding anniversary last week on the 15th, but because of my mom's birthday and my mother-in-law's health issues we never had a chance to celebrate then. So since this is a bigger anniversary year, this past Friday we both made arrangements to take the day off from work and decided to do something fun.
We started by going out to lunch at a restaurant named Tucker's in Dover, New Hampshire. Tucker's a small local chain that has yummy food and also does a lot of locally sourced food. They are only open for breakfast and lunch and are about 30 minutes away so we don't get there very often.
My husband had breakfast which is available all the time, but I was cold so I wanted comfort food to help warm me up..
I started with one of their mega mugs of chai tea while I waited for me meal.
And for my lunch
I had a grilled cheese on sourdough and a cup of butternut squash soup. Boy that soup was yummy. And the sandwich was excellent also. And to drink with my lunch I had a glass of water.
Good thing we had planned to go to the beach for walk for a walk that afternoon. I was pretty full and needed to burn off some of those calories.
It was a gorgeous afternoon for a walk. (This is York Beach in Maine.)
The dogs were quite excited to be invited along. I was walking Maddie and I will say my arm got a workout as she wanted to chase every seagull she saw.
She was not chasing these however. They were all clustered in some shallow water and I am guessing there was something good for them to eat in that spot. We weren't very close but I used the zoom on my camera lens to get these photos.
My biologist eye likes to see all the wing positions as they take off.
And I watched this flock of cormorants soar over the beach.
I love seeing the dynamic shapes they form as they fly.
And happened to spy this bird on the rocks near where we had parked the car.
I believe it is a killdeer, and Elizabeth I think this is the bird that you used in your art in your past Saturday post.
We had a perfect afternoon.
It was nice the weather cooperated, and it wasn't as cold as it is today.
I am also sending get well wishes to our hostess Elizabeth too.
Thanks for visiting me today and have a fantastic T day!
