I looked at some of the old albums while I was there, too. Very nice! Loved the waterfalls, especially!
Actually not we don't, but after several days of extra hours work, I finally had a couple days free.
(Now the plug for ourselves.)As normal when we went anywhere, the camera was the first thing to be sure we had with us. My wife picked a few of the better shots and posted them on our webshots page. The folder for the lake and tundra swan shots is the ''Mattamuskeet Lake, North Carolina - Our Winter Swan Lake''.
We drove to a wildlife refuge not too far from home. I had never been there before even though lived in eastern part of the state for all my life.
I think some of the birds may have already started their migrations back north. There were still plenty there, but I've seen photos and tv news coverage with a lot more even than we saw.
The pictures aren't bad, espcially given most of them were shot trying to sneak through the undergrowth between the dirt road/trail and the water to get to a shooting position. Only a few feet of growth, and not too thick, so it wasn't trampling for miles or anything. You can drive down approxiamately 2 mile or so on a woods road, with the water to one side of you. The day we went, almost no one there (one advantage to shift work and having weekdays off vs weekends) and we just stopped here and there on one side of the drive and got out and crossed over.
It was a bit of a chilly and breezy day, but it was a nice excursion, and definately helped erase work from your mind.
