Our World, My World

Happy Monday everyone!


We are just days away from the end of 2020, can you believe it?  Whew, what a year this has been.   The virus has made us change our way of life. Hubby is looking forward to be able to get the vaccine. We've have made it this far, surviving this pandemic. We can all make it through to the end, stay safe. 

 

 1.  From my backyard, I love skywatching. 




2.  A winter sky and sunset.


 

3.  A walk on the local fire road to the lake, a view of the Bald Eagle's nest and some pretty berries.


4. A Bald Eagle seen not far from the old nest, I am hoping they are successful nesting this year. 


5. Bald Eagle and the old Eagle's nest used last year.

 

6. Me and my shadow walking on the fire road..





7. We saw a couple of fishing boats on the lake, the water was choppy from the wind.  



 

8.  It was a pretty sky day, but very cold and windy.

 

9.  A view of the trail next to the lake. I believe the berries are from Viburnum bushes.




10. Heading back up the fire road, I had to get away from the wind near the water.  Hubby, my shadow wasn't ready to leave. 



Hubby and I are hanging in there, happy and healthy. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

 

Please keep wearing your mask and keep your distance!  Be safe, stay safe!

I wish everyone all the best in 2021, a very happy and healthy New Year!

  2. Hello,
    the Bald eagle is always a treat to see. A funny company during a walk.
    I will also try to get the vaccine, of course when possible for my age. In the meantime let's stay safe!
    All the best for the new week!

  7. Happy New Year, Eileen, to you and your shadow and thanks for sharing your world. It’s great 2020 will soon be over … I had such hopes when it first came around that it would be a good one but it turned out so awful for so many. The vaccines hopefully will improve the situation and take care of this newer faster spreading strain as well. Meanwhile, we are the lucky ones who have beautiful places to roam.

  8. Hi Eileen,
    What a beautiful series of photos.
    Nice walk along the lake, I also love the sunsets.
    I hope you get the vaccine soon, they only start here on January 8, we are now in qarantine because my husband has taken a neighbor somewhere, it later turned out that she had corona.
    This morning I went to the test street and my husband has to go tomorrow, now we hope we are tested negative.
    So it can always go wrong just before the vaccine, we notice now.
    Greetings Irma

  32. I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to watching winter skies. I like summer skies where I can sit in comfort. The fishermen must be dedicated to be out on a miserable day. But then what do I know. I've done my share of ice fishing.

    it has indeed been a very strange year and I really hope that by 2021 we will have that virus under control.
    Your photos from your backyard are truly beautiful to see. Beautiful colors in the sky. the bald eagle is also a beauty of a bird.
    I wish you and your hubby a nice new year and stay safe.

  49. Like you Eileen, I am pleased to get through 2020 unscathed, mentally and physically. It has been a poor year. Birders are better placed than many to survive such trauma through our close encounters with wildlife. Being a blogger helps too by keeping the mind active.

    Happy New Year to you.

  54. Hi Eileen, The more I enjoy looking at your blog the more I realize how much we have in common. We both love skywatching and nature photography. You publish an excellent blog and inspire me. I especially enjoy the way you organize the photos and include interesting captions/descriptions. It is tough to pick a favorite but in this post I think it would be the shots of the eagle and the way you included a shot of last year's nest. I hope they will be there again for you in 2021. It is good to hear that you and hubby are doing well and staying healthy. Happy New Year to you and hubby. I'm looking forward to Viewing Nature with Eileen in 2021. :-) John
