Cabin fever brought on a random car trip to Chatham, where we were blessed with more amazing wildlife – seals hunkering down in the distance.
These animals, as well as the environment they occupy, are beyond words. What a massive display of nature’s majesty! I’ve been on a few whale watches over the years, but never one with this much activity – the animals were clearly putting on a show for us. Couple that with flawless weather and you have a perfect day.
Today, I’m sharing a series of photos I took on a bike ride a few weeks back. I call it “When Nature Wins.” Along the Farmington River rail trail there is an old factory that is seemingly still in use, and there is a railroad siding that runs directly into the back of the building. Of course, the main track is long gone, replaced by the bike trail, so the remaining trestle and rail ties fully intertwined with Mother Nature is quite beautiful. It is a great reminder that our Earth has so much inner power.
