My Husband and I took a very early outing to Todd’s Island Rd in St. Margaret’s Bay…he woke me at 5 am on a Sunday morning…I was not a happy camper needless to say. He had packed up the car the night before so it wasn’t like I didn’t know we were going…but it was Sunday at 5am…5am…
He made us a smoothie and we hit the road…it was only a 20 minute drive to our spot, and when we got there the tide was out so the marsh area was a bit stinky…we trudged down to the water line and was on our way…it was very beautiful and peaceful there was no people, no road traffic.
We saw some wildlife on our almost 2 hour outing; there were deer on the shoreline coming up to drink some water, kingfishers diving in the water, bald eagles flying over head looking for some breakfast, and to top it off there was two loons near the area where we got out. They ran along the water to lift off and had the most beautiful sounding wing flapping…I was in shock they were so close to us…just beautiful.
Oh and I was really brave; I took my D90 out in the kayak with no waterproof housing…I was very nervous…we need to get a pelican case or housing (which is about 2 grand…so wont be happening anytime soon).
Have a good one!
