Another day, another ferry ride to an island. NOT yawn! Spotted a much smaller craft sharing our waters….
Found a colorful lighthouse…at the end of the road in one direction.
And a sandy beach in a cove at the end of the road in another direction.
What better welcome to our new housing than this colorful presentation from the sky-deities!
This plant is foreign to me. Found in a marshy ditch, maybe a half-dozen others within several hundred meters. Haven’t spotted it elsewhere. Distinctive. Several of the leaves are damaged, perhaps by frost? The brown pineapple-y features are from this year, not carry-overs from last year’s flowering/fruiting….
