Happy Skywatch Friday!

Gus and I took a drive to Maine last Friday up through the towns of Livermore Falls, Jay, and Wilton before heading over to Norridgwock where his parents live. We used to live in Livermore Falls, so it was fun to see all the places we used to hang out. Wilson Lake/Pond is one of my favorite places. No birds on the water yet, but usually there are loons here in the summer. Perhaps I will get to see some later this year! The Eastern Phoebe above was the only bird I saw or heard at this location on this day for the 10 minutes I was there!


  1. And the beautiful blue water as blue as an Arizona sky. Yet today it's a bit cloudy in Arizona.

  2. I love those rich, blue waters. Gorgeous.

  3. What beautiful skywatch and scenery shots but I have to say the bird photo is magnificent.

  4. Pretty shots!

    Would you mind visiting and commenting on my Sky Watch post? Big thanks!

  5. Beautiful and peaceful!
    Happy SWF Kathie.
    Enjoy your weekend.
