Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Jan. 1, 2014: A Bird on the Beach

1-IMG_2591%252BHappy New Year from the TravelGumbo Gurus and friends!

 

Sure, it's cold now, and seems like months to go to Spring, but keep this hopeful feathered friend and the beach in mind and it will help the time pass.

 

This picture is from an early summer break in Maine; the beach is near the Cape Elizabeth lighthouses just south of Portland. In case you can't wait for summer, Portland and the Casco Bay area tout themselves as a four-season attraction. More info HERE.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

I think updates of this picture should be a recurring reminder of the seasons.  Add coats to the chair, take them away.   Add hot beverages, change to cold.  And in fits of summer euphoria, add bathing suits, take them away...   I'll be watching!

I'd volunteer for the assignment, but the picture dates to 2008, and I'm sure the owner of the chair has moved it....

I think we'd all accept a re-creation then, Backyard Beach Babylon.  A truckload of sand, a backdrop, stuffed birds that could change with the seasons to simulate migration for more interest.  Your fans await.  Or, your fan awaits?
