Happy 2011 from the marshsicle
We focused on clearing the area beside the ghost boats, which meant many long walks back and forth from the high-ground wood pile.
Dramatic before-and-after shots are harder to come by as the debris dwindles, but I think that's a good thing.
Overall, we enjoyed an excellent year-opener. John Warren of Gateway NRA Public Affairs dropped by for a visit. Upon his arrival a sharp-shinned hawk swooped in and perched on a branch three feet from his head. As I pointed an accusatory finger at it stammering Hawk! Hawk!, John managed to catch a fleeting shot.
Thanks to Bill, Kim-Nora and Broc for your work today. And here's a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our evening routine: coffee on the 5-Train. Sorry for the wide-angle distortion; Tony doesn't actually have fiddler crab arm.
