October sky - beautiful! Among the homes below sits
The Bell House
This is taken from the side street - Colonel J. Burnside built it in 1883- son of Civil War General Ambrose Burnside
The Colonel lost the house to the government over pay issues in the Union Army accts.
Owned first by A. Bells father then by Alexander himself
The home overlooks the Potomic River

Though not to far from where I live , we would like to spend a couple of nights
a respite for us - just to get away somewhere quiet
clear evening view to the town - calm water
Heres looking to the Maryland shore
I turned and started walking toward the parking area
I look down and see this sea bird coming towards me
Sort of scary at first because he definitely wasn't afraid of me .
Never been around one this friendly
He got up close and started pecking at his foot, seemed a little bashful now.
Very pretty gray feathers
he did not mind having his picture taken
He is so sweet looking
Anyway minutes later Steve said he found a shark - I hate sharks but the one he found was o.k.
A piece of drift that looks like a shark , thats a keeper
Walking back to the car we see since our last visit that there has been sprucing up around the area
Will be back in a few weeks for more driftwood
til next time
