I was woken before 5:30 by a veritable battle of mockingbird song. There must have been at least 6 birds with territories within earshot, including one right outside my open window who sounded like he was right in the room with me.
It sure beats alarm clocks! I threw on a coverup to go let the dogs out for their morning constitutional, and found a dawn so beautiful I went back for my cameras.
Dad's little dog raised a terrific racket when she saw my furbeasts out and about, so alas Dad was also compelled to rise with the sun! We mutually agreed we would indulge in afternoon naps.
I also got my first look at my travelogue web pages on a real computer here at Dad's. The digital pictures are much better than I had thought they were! They look pretty crummy on my laptop display, but then it is not an SVGA display and has obviously mangled the pictures to make them show. I am far more pleased with the little inexpensive digital camera now! Won't feel quite as much envy for those with their $800 Sonys.
