Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #192

An ugly line of storms crossing the head of the Severn on its way to Cape St. Claire. We had a wicked few minutes and reports of a funnel cloud in the Cape, but fortunately no big damage, and we dodged another round of power outages. The good news is cooler temps and lower humidity in its wake. Enjoy!

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #191

I finally got up to Goshen Farm to check my garden today. It was not quite as bad as I expected after a three-week absence. I pulled out the weeds and removed the old veggies. The tomatoes and bell peppers were still producing. On my way out, I saw this pretty veil of honeysuckle. Nature does a much better job on her own than I could ever do with a garden.

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #190

Laika's box turtle friend came back for a visit today. I heard her barking in the yard and found her tossing this poor guy around like a ball. A chase ensued, and Mr. Turtle got a joy ride around the yard in Laika's mouth before she finally dashed in the house and deposited him on the stairs. I think she was saying, "Can we keep him, pleeeeaaassseee..." The answer was no, but I marked his shell with some red Sharpie so we will recognize him the next time he comes to call. If the Sharpie comes off, I should still be able to make out Laika's teeth marks.

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #189

Check out these shiitake mushrooms that my neighbor grew. They were the size of my fist. I took this picture just moments before they became dinner in the form of beef, broccoli and shiitake mushroom stir fry. Yum!!!

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #188

As we returned from the Eastern Shore yesterday, a wicked little thunder storm blew up to meet us at the Bay Bridge. I am uneasy going over the bridge on the nicest of days, so the weather had me even more nervous than usual. To keep from curling up in the fetal position, I distracted myself by taking some pictures. By the time I took this one, we were through the worst of it, but you can see the remnants of the squall on the right side of the photo just beyond Sandy Point Light. Needless to say, I was happy to alight safely on the Western Shore and get back to the Cape.
