Skywatch Friday and great grilling recipes

The Seashore sky at Island Beach state park .

I just love all the seagulls flying and swooping down to the beach.    This is a continuation of photos (previous post Scenic Sunday).

It was great to have  a warm enough day to enjoy a stroll along the beach in the month of May; alas the water is still yet cold to go swimming unless you’re a polar bear.

The Tour of Somerville was started in 1940 by a local bike owner and racer named  Fred “Pop” Kugler. 

It is the oldest bicyle race in the United States and is considered “the Kentucky Derby of Cycling.”

This year I was privileged to have the day off from work and decided to enjoy the day in Somerville.  It’s been many years since I’ve been here for the race.

The following photos are a collage of memories.

World Water Day is March 22, 2009

The United Nations calculate that some 21,000 children will die through lack of water or famine due to lack of rain.

We celebrate water in our lives today.

Today, my husband ventured out for a walk at Carnegie Lake in Princeton, New Jersey. There were three fishermen quietly engaing in their sport and two geese walking about along with me enjoying the sounds of nature and capturing some on film and video.

Photos and video will be posted later.
