The Nest Item museum was on display and some chatters displayed their art, photography and writing. What a talented group!
And somehow, the peripatetic pig named PP showed up! Nobody (except one?) knows how he got there or how he left, but presumably he enjoyed the party. And partook of the many desserts and whipped cream.
Tis the last day of summer
And the ospreys have flown away.
Do you see Rosie up yonder
She too is flying today.
She will fly thousands of miles,
To her warm winter home
Find her favorite Southern beach,
Spend the winter there alone.
So farewell to our dear Rosie,
May the wind in your wings be fair
May the skies above be blue
And a warm welcome greet you there.
Richie is at the nest
Watching for his mate Rosie.
After your long winter rest,
Rosie, will you return to me?
Tis the last day of summer,
And the ospreys have all flown.
Do you see Richie up yonder
Standing on the nest alone?

There is much to see on and around the nest, even in the off season. Vessels of various types: salboats, ships, dredgers, tugboats and ferries.
Then there are the various bird visitors to the nest, looking for dried up tidbits or just enjoying the view.
And various light artifacts, often given names by the chatters.
