Today was overcast but still seasonably cool, and I decided to visit some of the more serene spots in town, those places that are oases of calm and quiet set in the midst of traffic and residential areas. The little farm on Hockersmith Avenue came to mind, as did the wetland areas of the Dykeman Spring Nature Park. And I found a surprise waiting by the north duck pond in the park - a visiting Double-crested Cormorant. I'm used to seeing them around salt water rather than fresh, and they were abundant around Newport, so I choose to see this as an old friend come to see how I'm doing.

  1. Taxi cabs can get you to a place so you don't have to pay for parking and worry about all kinds of parking tickets, drinking violations, and other problems that might come along the way. The only thing is, that they are not always just driving down the street at any time that you might just walk out there and try to hail it. They are not obligated to check for you.
