America made history last night with the election of Barak Obama to the office of the President of the United States of America. Congratulations to all the candidates, who show us that the American dream is still functioning in the land of the free.
Today's photo is a view of Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge, near my home in Cambridge, is the home of at least 60 pairs of nesting eagles. I have visited the refuge many times, and I will tell you there is nothing quite like walking the nature path and spotting an eagle as it soars overhead. This is a great comeback for the raptors, symbol of the freedom that make our land great. For those of you interested in eagles, here is the url for a web cam that you can use to watch these huge birds as they raise their chicks starting next winter. I am told they hatch their eggs sometime in February! Not only are they beautiful to watch, but hardy as well. Check out the eagle cam at: http://www.friendsofblackwater.org/camhtm2.html
Today promises to be a busy day, and I hope all my friends have a good one. See you tomorrow! Terry
