A dusting of snow, 27 degrees - a perfect morning for an outing. No other cars in the parking lot at the local marshy boardwalk area. The only birds we saw were Chickadees and Blue Jays, but we found plenty of evidence of unseen wildlife. Deer and raccoon prints near the stream, a headless rabbit in the grasses, and scat on the boardwalk. Climbing trees and singing Christmas songs (the little babe and I, not the wildlife). And who says you need paper and pencil to practice writing letters?
