Wet Webs

It was very foggy this morning. The moisture had collected heavily on large and complex spider webs, outlining them in sparkly-ness.

Puppies are cute. No way around it.

A Raptor Over Dover

I'm not sure if it was a hawk or an osprey. It appeared in the sky over Legislative Mall in Dover as I left my office this morning to walk up town for a salad. It was making its way back home with some sort of prey in its talons. A greeting from nature.

A Cool Front

This past weekend featured a welcome drop in temperature. After a week in the high 90's, we had a week-end in the 80's and down in the 60's at night. Very nice.

Tidal Pools

Beach-puddles, really. Formed when high tides push large waves up and over the built-up sand at the front of the beach and the water is trapped on the back-slope. Great for wading.

A Haircut

It's such a simple thing. But my hair had been getting long. Now it is back to the
short length that I find more comfortable these days.

My Town's Leaders

I watched a cross-section of Lewes' leaders last night. The Showfield Annexation Committee includes members of City Council, members of the Board of Public Works, our Planning Commission Chair, and several long-time residents. They showed great dedication, knowledge and patience. The interested citizenry that came out to the meeting was impressive as well. Civic life is good.
