I last visited the nest on over the weekend on Saturday. So today I was happy to see that the birds were testing their wings and learning to fly to nearby branches. Hope they don't take a tumble and land in the water far below.
I took another friend to watch the birds as she had never seen a great blue heron's nest. After we stayed for awhile we decided to go blueberry picking down the bog.
On the way to the bog I stopped to take a photo of this huge pine tree that was uprooted in the blizzard this past February. Look at the huge rocks that are still embedded in the soil and tree roots.
My friend, Betty Ann at the bog picking blueberries. Betty Ann loved the Ocean Spray hat I let her wear.
This afternoon I picked up my aunt and we took a ride to the Cape to the Lutheran Church on route 6-A in West Barnstable. We went to listen to a Finnish choir group from Helsinki, Finland. They sang some songs in English and some in Finnish. Even though I didn't understand the songs that they sang in Finn I enjoyed the music. I only understand a little Finn.
