Ooops! I thought that was a little too blue for ocean, but wasn't sure. Beautiful timeshare!

Due to the loss of their terrain, folks in the city now get to see wildlife all the time. They are no long limited to the countryside. We even get a moose or two that thinks those tall buildings are for attacking when they see their reflection in the glass door or on the side of a shiny car.

One day when my son was walking Teddy, a hawk came down out of the sky to take what looked like a very small white rabbit for dinner. Spike grabbed Teddy just in time in his arms. We now also have Bald Eagles being spotted in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston. And little by little they are spreading out to other sections of the city. All you have to do is look for them near water with surrounding tall trees.

The Blue Angels have been out stretching their wings over this area for the past few days for an air show this weekend. It's amazing watching some of the greatest pilots in the world from my back yard!

My 6 year old grandson Tyler is at a Meet and Greet with them this evening, and so hoping to get an autograph. Especially from the Pilot of Blue Angel #6, whose name is also Tyler.

The Blue Angels are so impressive! One of my roommate's boyfriends took me to Friends and Family Day when I was in college (they were both in the military, I was the "stand-in girlfriend"), and they were amazing!

My friend Cathy went to Friends and Family Day today - she got sunburned in this sunny 80's weather, but was floored by their spectacular aerial acrobatics. The last time I saw the Blue Angels, my heart skipped a beat several times!

You got to see that from your backyard, Cheryl? That's pretty cool!

CG, we used to have a Naval Air Base located in Weymouth. It is now all condos. They used to have a team similar but not as good. And only four planes. And the show was much shorter. Too bad we lost it. The kids loved it. We used to call them Green (with envy and experience) Angels.

Yes, the first two were from my yard, there happened to be a break in the tree line just where they were flying. I cropped out my neighbor's chimney from both of them.

The third one was from up the road a couple of miles.

Thank you, Rick. I'm keeping my phone battery charged and hope to get a lot more pics. I'll share a couple more if they turn out well.
