Snug as a bug

We closed the keeper’s quarters and pulled the plug. Although the temperature dipped into the 30’s and we didn’t have central heat, we were snug as a bug in a rug. We put up grates and plywood on the windows.

I scared this timberdoodle (American woodcock) in the alley by the tower. It took cover on a windowsill and I ran inside to get its picture.

I went up the tower for the last time to look around, take some pics and secure the inside door.

Then sent our stuff down the tram to the cove.

Our intrepid crew arrived in shorts! The first mate, Pepper, kept a sharp lookout on the bow. They arrived to drain the plumbing and finish the task.

I presented her with a leash I wove with my tablets and copper loom for being so cute.

We locked up, boarded the boat and headed home.

We still saw a beautiful sunset, just a little differently.
