December 5, 2015 - Jacksonville, FL

A very foggy morning and Edith decided not to head to the beach for sunrise.  Very windy, also.

Edith checked Facebook and there were lots of posts congratulating Nyle DiMarco for winning Cycle 22 America’s Next Top Model. The first DEAF model!  We hope he will create a huge impact on the hearing community’s outlook and acceptance of the deaf community's culture and American Sign Language (that is our language). Way to go, Nyle.

Edith went by herself to Hogan Pond across the street from Winn Dixie store to take pictures of different ducks.  Hooded mergansers are back. They are interesting to watch, but are very wary of human presence. They swam further away when Edith walked to the edge of the bank.  Mallards and Canadian Geese were around.  While shooting pictures Edith started to feel sick and decided to head back home.

Edith came back home feeling worse and decided not to go anywhere for the rest of the day.  It was not the flu. Just an upset stomach. It could be something she ate for breakfast.

Erwin went biking by himself while Edith stayed home to rest.  It was still very windy and foggy, but not as much as it was early this morning.

A restful afternoon and evening for both of us.  Since there was no electricity available inside our Lil’ Home (LH) Erwin got the extension cord, plugged it in the garage and through the window in the LH.  He finally finished one woodburning project that he had been working on for several months. 12" x 12' on watercolor paper. Little bit of color added for enhancement.
