The Journey has ended

It’s been a 5 month journey.   We decided, well I desired and my hubby agreed, to move back to NY.  We had been in Texas for 10 years and I longed for home.  Last April the journey began with listing our TX home, packing, planning and waiting.  I won’t bore you with the details but we are finally settled into our new home on the north shore of Long Island NY.  I just love it, surrounded by trees, vineyards and farms, 5 minute walk to  the water and only  miles from any store you could possible need.

Those of you that follow this blog know I’ve been hooked on photographing birds for 3 years now.   Well I am in heaven…our home is surrounded by big old oak tress and all kinds of new species for me.  We are going on our third week in our new home and today I pulled out the camera to see if I could remember how to shoot 🙂 I put out thistle, suet and sunflower seeds last week in feeders and have been greeted by the locals!!! The goldfinches have discovered the thistle and I believe they will be too fat to fly soon!

I will eventually leave my yard,  but until then I am so enjoying all the birds that visit daily!

  1. I’m glad you’re “home” Judy, because I know that’s where the heart is!! ❤️I’ll miss you in Texas, but I’ll always cherish the times we had together and thanks to all of the ways of the Internet and Social Media, it’s going to seem like you are still here! Y’all enjoy and come back to visit!

  2. Nice captures! Glad you’re home, and I look forward to your new work. I grew up on the south shore, then spent almost ten years in FL feeling displaced. For some of us, geography exerts an influence as strong as biology. It’s in our bones and psyche both. I eventually traveled as fas north as Virginia, where I’m now at home.
