This fall was exceptionally beautiful! As usual for November we headed to Easton,MD for the Waterfowl Festival. Vic took a few days of vacation so we could arrive early for some special time together. We let our favorite b&b, the Ruffled Duck Inn, Oxford,MD, pamper us.
The Waterfowl Festival was blessed with perfect weather. The crowds filled the town of Easton. my booth was in the little historic Christ Church again, so it was easy for old friends to find me. They are gracious hosts there and it is one of my favorite shows to take part in. Here is a peek at my booth before people came to enjoy.

Corgis are very curious and have an abundance of energy. They were used to drive cattle, herd ANYTHING else, keep the rats down and take care of the kids. They are a large dog in a small package. Their curiousity is insatiable, and they can crawl into your heart in a moment. Well, at least into mine. In this larger sculpture the corgi had been playing ball when something came by on the other side of the fence, a cat? another dog? maybe a butterfly, or better yet, you. 'The Garden Fence" is 12"high.

The 50th Anniversary show/celebration of the Society of Animal Artists!
Oh, confusion set in here. But then, the order doesn't matter, just that it all happened. Our first adventure was a whale watching adventure! Although the whales were scarce, we saw seals, sealions, gulls, pelicans, and much more. Porpoises played with us as we returned to the harbor.

A special treat at the Denver Zoo was a chance to see the new infant orangutan and we saw a fossa!
I had never seen a live fossa before! Unfortunately he was not very cooperative as far as photography.
They are found in Madagascar
