A light dusting of white and fluffy snow arrived in the early evening. With hopes of beautiful winter scenes along the Chesapeake Bay the alarm was set for pre-dawn. Arriving to the destination of Possum Point with a view over the bay towards the Bay Bridge I wait for dawn to arrive.
First greeted by the sudden movement of a white-tailed deer that was startled by my arrival. I left the warm comfort of my car to walk along the water’s edge in search for the perfect spot. With animal tracks in the snow, are they fox, raccoon, deer? It is quite a busy place for wildlife.
I found my perfect spot along the water, and waited for the sun to warm the bay. The sudden squawking of a Peregrine Falcon alerted me, and he sat watching me for a few minutes before flying off for another perch. The giggle of a Bald Eagle teased me across the water, and Greater Scaups floated by along with their Bufflehead friends.
The early morning was overcast and chilly, and even with winter boots on, my toes began to chill. At last my patience paid off as the sun gave me a glimpse before rising behind the cloud cover.
And so I went in search for the light down in Eastport at the Annapolis Maritime Museum.
This picture perfect early morning was topped off with a hot chocolate and a warm croissant. I hope your morning was as beautiful as mine was. Bella
