Great Blue Herons in the cold!

bird GBH journal

We couldn’t have kayaked up Pomonkey Creek during the Christmas bird count. It was frozen solid. But our local Great Blue Herons didn’t want to miss the count. They were huddled together in the marsh, hiding from the frigid North wind. How many can you count?

I Saw 3 Ships Come Sailing In!

Merry Christmas 3 ships

“I saw three ships come sailing in on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day!

I saw three ships come sailing in, on Christmas Day in the morning!”

This wonderful old traditional tune was published by William Sandys in 1833 with several other beloved favorites in a book titled “Carols Ancient & Modern”.

Singing Christmas carols is a great way to celebrate the holiday. Merry Christmas to all!
