Winter Walking 4

As well as walking out on the beaches, I have been looking at “Those Amazing Seals” with the Nature Conservancy and out looking for the Snowy Owl. I did see the seals (there are colonies all around the island and in the Great Salt Pond) but it seems that everyone has seen the snowy owl except me. Photos of neither have been taken, but I did also see a lot of ice. (last photo taken from Kari Curtis in the Block Island Times – I missed getting one of all the kids out skating)

The picture of the houses does not show that they are all empty. A ghost village where the owl has been seen by several people, but not by me. Again. One can see the house interiors, lamps unlit, chairs not sat on until next summer, it feels strange.

Block Islanders – do you know where the other pictures were taken?
