Seize the Moment

Unbeknownst to us, a winter storm was sweeping across the Deep South, making its way from Texas to Georgia, and into the Atlantic states and north to Boston. We happened to look out the window yesterday morning and were excited to see snow flurries. Seizing the moment, the first mate quickly grabbed the camera and ran out to take some pictures.

Eventhough it's freezing outside and cold inside the boat during the winter, we still like living aboard. We just love the boating lifestyle - the impromptu potlucks with boaters, the freedom to run out any time to take pictures, and the fascinating wildlife on the river. We've seen lunar eclipses and shooting stars in the middle of the night, taken sunrise pictures early in the morning, picked seashells on uninhabited islands, and watched ducks select a safe place to lay their eggs. There is never a dull moment on the river.

Coots, not our favorite bird. They signal winter
The storm blanketed most of the Deep South. Atlanta got nearly a foot of snow. Tennessee missed the brunt of it; we hear a sigh of relief from all who are participating in our favorite Dickens Festival in Franklin this weekend.

Stay warm and be safe out there, y'all!
