Welcome to my new blog, Geogypsy in the mean time. I actually started blogging over four years ago and immediately discovered new friends from around the world. Hopefully some of you will continue to follow me here.
Why a second blog? Well, geogypsytraveler was created to share stories of my travels. But unfortunately I haven’t been traveling since my seasonal job as a Park Ranger ended in mid-October. Instead I’ve been focusing on the plans for my upcoming trip to South Africa, being lazy about writing an eBook and searching for a new vehicle. So why not throw one more thing in the mix like starting a new blog where I can share what’s going on in the meantime. This is totally a work in progress, just like I am.
And right now, my meantime involves siting at the computer a lot where I can also watch the birds. Seems the only thing I’ve photographed lately is the birds and sunsets through my windows. These shots were taken using the newest lens, 55-300mm, which I am happy with, so far. Always want bigger, smaller, whatever, that I can’t afford and am certainly not strong enough to carry anyway.
Coopers Hawk hung out over 30 minutes
My fingers went numb holding the camera while I took photo after photo waiting to catch it in flight. I gave up, about five minuets before it took off empty taloned. It will be back I’m sure.
Unfortunately I’ve been feeling a little trapped, like a bird under cover. Long time readers of my other blog will know the truck I own
is a piece of sh.. may be a lemon. It is once again in need of major repairs and I will not dump any more money into it. It hasn’t moved in almost a month, and neither have I. Well, not quite true. I go shopping once a week with Berta in her car. I guess I’m getting more done by staying home anyway.
In the meantime…
