Two Rhode Island transplants have settled here in Northwest Florida on Escambia Bay. In Rhode Island, we spent most of our summers and fall days sailing the waters of Narragansett Bay, Block Island Sound and Buzzards Bay. We are so delighted to have found another Bay to enjoy.

"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."
Spent a lovely afternoon at Ft. Pickens photographing nesting Great Blue Herons. I snapped three nests and while setting up for this nest, the birds started to do what I can only imagine was part of a mating ritual. The Heron with its head raised straight up let loose a hauntingly beautiful wail. They went through their dance and then simply returned to building the nest. It was amazing to watch.
