In honor of a lazy Saturday, I'm posting a very lazy picture which attempted to capture that bird flying there just above the water. (Not the white dot on the left, which might be a capsized boat for all we know; but the dark arc there in the middle).
Because the picture is so awful, it's impossible to discern whether this was a heron, a pelican, an airborne mermaid, or a bufflehead.
About a week ago, I didn't know what a bufflehead was. Now, a week later, I've already forgotten but I remember that "bufflehead" is a great word.
Actually, I do recall that bufflehead are those tiny little ducks which swim underwater. So the water creature above was most likely
Also in honor of this lazy Saturday I am
"Mathews County lies in southeastern Virginia. Save for a stretch of land by which it is attached to Gloucester County, all its boundaries are water. On the east and south, its shores are washed by the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, on the southwest is Mobjack Bay, on the west North River and on the north is the Piankatank River. Its geographic location gives a clue to the origin of the old saying, "One only goes to Mathews when going to Mathews."
It's true. Mathews is not a thoroughfare, it's a destination. You either want to be here or you don't.
Here's to a lazy Saturday.
