Bye for now–Next Post from Boone!

This is the last post from the Island for now since we are returning to Boone today.  I wanted to include one of my favorite images in this final post from HHI–this little squirrel hunched down in the morning sun waiting to get warmed by it.  He (or she) sat there for at least twenty minutes, hardly moving at all, while the rising sun fell on him and then when it seemed he would never move he scampered away and began looking for nuts in the leaf litter under the oaks.  The branch he sat on has been a favorite perch for others, notably a beautiful bluebird that sat there and sang–until I got my camera.

    Hope your trip back is safe and uneventful.
