Heron at dusk

Tried to take a picture at dusk of a heron sitting on a rock just off shore. Mixed photographic results, but atmospheric, nonetheless.

Good to be home. Knitting on 3 projects at once - my dark grey cardigan, R.'s birthday sweater and the second pair of socks "Hedera' from Cookie A.'s book. Listening to "Reamde" all over again to try to get the complicated plot elements sorted out, and because it is just so entertaining. Read a good junk of "Consequences' by Penelope Lively on the ferry ride home - love it. And hurrah, my eyesight is finally clearing and I can see much better.
