Headin' Down South to the Land of the Pines

Please pardon me as I take a few days with my family to hunt quail, ducks, geese, and swan outside of the Great Dismal Swamp on the Virginia-North Carolina border. It's been a fabulous year at River Mud.  I've enjoyed writing for and chatting with all of you in 2011, and I am looking forward to an even better 2012!  Now go outside! 

Oh, in case you're not familiar with the post title, enjoy a wonderful song:

ooh, that looks GREAT! And I'm SO envious of you @ the Great Dismal. Who couldn't WANT to go somewhere with such a name?!? My husband loved that 1st shot (loves the habitat) and I loved the 2nd. Yum!

I did get out recently, on a hike to find snowy owls (struck out), but any excuse to get out and hike @ the ocean (in Mass.) works for me.

Yes, 2012 resolution: Get. Out. More. & get out all year 'round.

Well, we had balmy weather and the birds acted crazy. We bagged a few, had a great time, and spent some time outdoors in some amazing habitat. Not a bad way to spend a few days!
