Weekend Waterview and Tidbits

Happy Sunday! We took an early morning boat ride, enjoying the sunshine and a nap on the pontoon. Flying our flag for 9/11 with some plane contrails visible in the blue sky. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on White Dog Therapy and your thoughts and prayers for our family. Your comments were so touching they…

May Day Basket and Weekend Waterview

Happy May 1st! I’m celebrating with a May Day Basket, hanging on our dock post instead of a doorknob! I’ve been Singing the Wildflower Blues this week, in praise of Bachelor Buttons, also know as Cornflowers, blooming in the field next to my Potting Shed. Ox-eye daisy, a common roadside daisy, popped up this week…

Spring Forward to Boating Season!

We’re enjoying our 3rd warmest March in 75 years, with temperatures in the 70s and 80s later this week, so boating season arrived with daylight saving time this year! Some elbow grease is required to spring forward to boating season. . . Which requires some bleach and a some Chateau de “Bateau” for the job. . . Best…

Weekend Waterview: Portsmouth Island

We spent a long weekend in November at Portsmouth Island, a small southern Outer Banks barrier island. Portsmouth Island is 13 miles long and only accessible by a small boat or privately run ferry. It’s one of the last wild frontiers of the Outer Banks with no businesses and only a small handful of National Park Service regulated and managed…

Weekend Waterview: Here Comes the Sun!

After 10 days of rain and three very wet weekends in a row, we’re enjoying some welcome sunshine! It’s clear and frosty this weekend and fall has definitely arrived in North Carolina. . . The plus side to all our rain is the pond is full! Fall color has peaked and most of the leaves came down with our…

Weekend Waterview: A Little Steam Fog

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re enjoying some beautiful fall weather this weekend and cooler temperatures like we are in North Carolina. After our much-needed rain, it’s nice to have a sunny weekend to enjoy and crisp fall mornings. And watch the steam fog drift quietly across the lake. We only have tiny pockets of fall color…
