Praying Mantises Have Hatched Once Again

I'm leaving for ten days in Svalbard, Norway tomorrow to hopefully photograph the polar bears.  As I was getting ready and watering the plants on our deck for the last time for a while, I was thrilled to find the praying mantises have hatched and one posed for me on our yellow pansy.  Here she is in all her glory. Click on the picture to see that wonderful face.

Puuluup - A Duo in Estonia

We were entertained by this marvelous duo in Estonia a few days ago.  They played ancient instruments with a sense of humor.  Folk meets rock.  I loved them.  Tom, not so much.

We're Home From the Baltic Sea!!

Tom and I just returned from two weeks circumnavigating the Baltic Sea!  Many photos to share and stories to tell, but in the mean time here is a photo of the calm, calm sea from our cabin.  It was about 11:00 p.m. and the light was still there.
