I wish I had more of a joke to this but I don’t and if I did I would probably forget it because I’m a horrible joke teller. I can never remember jokes. I have to write them down and then half the time I can’t find the nakpin they were written on.

When I first saw these tracks in the woods behind my house I immediately had the start of this joke line in my head. Of course I couldn’t come up with an actual joke so I just took the picture with the thought of the title already in my head. It will have to be enough for now. Feel free to come up with a joke based on the title..

I’ve been feeling the travel bug a lot lately and these tracks remind me that I do need to get out there and do some exploring. Would figure the time is  not the issue it’s the money to travel with. It does comes in handy for gas, food and lodging.

I do find that I’m happiest when I’m in my car driving to a place I’ve already picked out or an unknown desitination. Some place that will be determined once I see it or rather feel it. The best part is walking around and exploring. I love it. I always look for where the locals go and head straight there. Then I sit somewhere with a coffee or a beer and just watch and listen to the pulse that goes on in that particular place I’m in. Sometimes I get photos and sometimes I don’t. Either way it’s all an experience that I’m yearning for once again.

This guy was my lunch date when I went to Schoodic Point the other day. It took a little prodding with a few potato chips but he came up and sat beside me to keep my company. He was a good date who didn’t ask too many questions who was polite and had nice manners. I happily shared my crabmeat roll and a few more chips with him. It was quite a skilled seagull who could catch potato chips from the air as I tossed them to him. I wanted to take a photo of him catching one but I didn’t. One reason, it was very difficult to toss a chip with one hand and try to focus and remain steady with the camera in the other. I also had an odd sense of feeling like I didn’t want to exploit the bird, as odd as that sounds, lol. Of course when I brought this thought up to my friend Nadia while at work we very quickly came up with various bird exploitation ideas and couldn’t stop laughing over the possible photo oppurtinities that could go along with them.

Don’t worry, no birds would have been hurt in the making of the photos.. Certainly no birds were hurt in these photos..
