And here's a still of when he finally did take flight.
|Here's another photo of him perched in a tree.|
I got up early on Friday morning and cleaned up the studio from some glazing I'd done several days ago, wedged up some porcelain balls and threw six tumblers. I then took a short nap and threw some stuff together and drove out to camp, stopping in Augusta to buy a Brita water filter pitcher.
Got to camp and filled the feeders and then jumped in the kayak. I paddled for about 2 or 3 hours; went over in the cove across from camp and then down to the Route 126 bridge, and then back around the back of the islands where the osprey nest used to be. That's where I took the video. I came back to camp and put things away and headed back home to shower and get ready to go to Guthrie's.
I slept in late on Saturday and then spent a few hours cleaning, sweeping and washing the kitchen floor, vacuuming, dusting, laundry, etc. Rick had to go up to campus for graduation. Sara graduated but the ceremony was held inside and tickets were scarce so I didn't attend. It was nice to stay home alone, even though I spent most of the time cleaning. Once Rick got home we spent most of the afternoon and evening watching movies.
This morning I got up before 5 a.m. and went up to the studio to trim the tumblers I'd thrown on Friday. I also put up the rest of my pottery collage posters.
I thought we had a graduation party for Sara today but found out about 10 a.m. that the party is next Sunday. That was a big relief because I really just wanted to vegetate, which is basically what I ended up doing. I did actually get around to painting these tumblers I'd made a couple weeks ago with underglazes.
