Most days, after spending a day off island and catching the 3:30 boat home, I walk into the house around 4:15. My routine is to put away whatever groceries I purchased, start to make dinner, listen to phone messages, then sit down to have a cup of tea while checking e-mail, FaceBook, and blogs. In considering a post for my own blog after an off-island day (especially a day where I have not managed to pull out my camera) I am sometimes faced with the choice of posting nothing or posting something kind of lame.
A few months ago, on a snowless winter walk, something caught my eye. I took a photo and saved it, just in case I needed it for a day such as this.
