Happy New Year!
Flipping of the page from Dec 31 to Jan 1 this time has special significance for us. The last day of 2018 was officially our last day of work and the first day of 2019 is our first day of retirement! For three plus decades, Brad & I worked side by side in our business. He eloquently shared on the company blog highlights from the past and hopes for the future.
The future is bright as is the sky in the image chosen to start this ‘new chapter,’ the New Year. May you face the year ahead with optimism and gratitude. Oh, and by the way, the dark spot just to the right of the calendar is actually an eagle! Soar, my friends.

Occasionally, we hear a whole lot of caw-cawing out on the point. This typically means there is a treat to the crows, their young or their dinner. This time the threat was an eagle. Two crows took turns dive bombing the eagle.
Here’s a sequence of shots as one crow goes vertical.
Here’s a collage of just some of the wildlife caught with my camera last month.
Oh, yeah, did I mention I like to digital scrapbook, too?
Edit: Thanks to those of you who brought to my attention the errors in the initially posted graphic. Corrections have been made.
I wouldn’t think of bald eagles as song birds, but this pair performed a brief duet.
Heading out for a Sunday evening drive, we chanced upon some eagles with dinner plans. At least three where circling and swooping over a couple of ducklings just off Mameigwiess Road.
Every time an eagle decsended to skim across the water, the ducks.. ducked.
Our presence was enough to scare the predators off.
