Around town and in the backyard.....

Except for the very last minute stuffing packing the carry-ons - I have finished! Hopefully I have every charger for every electronic device! The trip back and forth has become slightly difficult since my hip replacement. The intimate attention from security is quite invasive. I don't have a solution and they have been professional but still....I am a white haired, arthritic older person. Oh, well.

Jack's yard attracts deer because of an old apple tree in his front yard. I wanted a picture so I set up a blind of sorts. I raised the blinds and placed a chair and chose my lens and camera. I thought about camouflage clothing but didn't want to spend the money - just kidding. Jack had knocked the apples off the top of the tree earlier with his snow rake. I sat and waited and sure enough across the road they came.
He posed for the camera. I got lots of pictures (I almost said shots!!!). The light was beginning to fade. Hunting season starts next week....

Today we took a ride looking for stone walls and old barns.
This barn and home are being restored. I will look forward to seeing what they have done next year.

There was no traffic so we stopped on the bridge in Bolster's Mills. 

The sky over the lake was amazing.

It was a good day! Hope you are having a good week!

Looks like a great day Carol! The deer are pretty, hope you got some of the apples too:@)

Pam said...

It sounds like a fun day and I like all your pics. Have a safe trip back!

Vee said...

Wonderful pictures, Carol. That deer gave you such a sweet expression. Probably thanking you and Jack for the apples.

I'm sorry that you have to endure so much inspection when traveling. It really is ridiculous in my opinion. All that you should need is clearance from your doctor once and for all. Sometimes the powers that be in this country are beyond idiotic, not a whole lot of common sense being used.

Beautiful photos Carol. I hope your airline 'inspections' go well. Blessings, Pamela

The photos are lovely. How nice you got to see the deer enjoying the last of the apples. I hope that last pretty one survives the hunting season.

I hate hunting season. As I look at the two young deer who are often are our property, I pray for their safety in the coming weeks. No hunting allowed on or near our property, so hopefully they will be okay.

Beautiful shots from Maine, hope that little guy survives.
I just read your message to Rich on the sidebar and now have a lump in my throat.
Travel safe dear lady.

Lovely photos - the thought of hunting season makes me sad...

I loved seeing this. Those deer are just amazing!



Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

What lovely photos Carol. He looks like he really is posing. You won't see him again after the first shot is fired.

I too read the sidebar post. Safe travels Carol. I'll be thinking of you.

Oh Carol...I love your pictures of the stone walls! They remind me of Ireland so much.
Lovely photos!

I captured some deer that walked right past my sewing room window last week. Scared the $hit oughta me! They weren't the least bit bothered by me taking their pictures & then yelling at them to leave my tomatoes alone. LOL


Cass @ That Old House said...

Great deer shots!
As for camouflage, why not dress up like an apple?
Oh wait -- that might be dangerous.
