Good morning everyone. Welcome to summer in Maine when we get a chance to see some of the most unusual visitors. One can never guess who will show up. Just yesterday I was driving up Route 1 in the slow moving traffic. I was more than a little surprised to see the neck of a guitar hanging out the drivers side window of an on coming vehicle, fingers dancing about the frets. And I was worried about folks driving motor homes through town with one eye on the road and the other eye capturing the sights and sounds of Camden through a video camera. I am not even going to go into the fashions of the day!
Don’t for a minute think that we don’t see some unusual guests aboard the schooner. Friday morning we were greeted by a stowaway that was hiding in the folds of the foresail all night long. “Just cunning” as my grandmother would say. From what I can tell from my very limited knowledge of bats, this would be a little brown bat (as opposed to a big brown bat) because of its very furry nose (big brown bats have an almost hairless nose). Our little visitor “hung” around on the foresail while all admired how unique a creature was so close to view.
And just so you don’t think I am stretching my point about unusual guests, get a load of this gull… straight from a punk rock show. Can anyone explain this to me?
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
