It was a late arrival to Stage Harbor for the sunset.
But there’s always someone to see…
Black Ducks, nibbling on some greens, paddling out from the shoreline.
A Common Loon snorkeling for just one last bite before bedtime.
And it looked like he found JUST that! 😉
And this gorgeous female Eider, glowing in the setting sunlight, who was obviously…
Getting ready to tuck in for the night.
I spotted her from the drawbridge as I walked further along, and I could hear her murmuring out “goodnights” to her friends.
And even though I missed the sunset, I could see the glow of it as it covered everything I passed by.
And I was treated to a real gift by the time I got to the fish pier, as a beautiful blue light had descended upon the old Stage Harbor Freezer Company that made me stop, take a deep breath…
And just feel blessed to live in such a place where the Beauty is just a short walk away.
Happy New Year, everybody, and goodnight! ❤
