Yesterday was the actual date of Clif’s birthday. As regular readers know, we are firm believers in celebrating birthdays early and often. We had his big party a week or so ago, but we couldn’t let the 27th go by without doing a little something.
So off to Hallowell we went, to grab appetizers from the local Chinese restaurant and settle by the river to enjoy them.
The day was cloudy but warm, perfect, actually, to be by the water. In a flash, two hours went by as we ate, chatted, and watched the river, which caught bands of rippling blue from the sky.
We saw a number of cormorants swimming, fishing, and resting. Here is a picture of one flapping its wings.
We also saw gulls, but I wasn’t able to get a good picture as they were on the move.
Afterward, we came home and had drinks on the patio.
We all agreed it was a lovely way to celebrate a birthday.
