Nerdy Birdy: Highest Tide of the Year at Newport Back Bay

I have been having a rough past couple months and I am not really sure how to ‘fix’ it. When I am in so deep that I am dreaming therapies and having nightmares about what I am dealing with my Little Cricket I read that as a sign that I need to try something to lift me out of it. After all what I am currently doing isn’t filling me up, and trying the same thing over and over again but expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity. So I opted for something a little different. I took some good ole selfish me time. I don’t know why as a mother I have to even feel like taking a bit of time to do something I love should feel selfish. But here is am, pouring into the hole in my soul something that I really love. I went birding.

My nerdy birdy owl friends were heading up a tour at the Newport Back bay at one of the highest tides of the year. The Newport back bay is normally a marshland of high grasses. You can often hear the more elusive rails and soras but you can never see them. With the tide being so high, these birds lose their cover, allowing us to finally see them. I was excited to spend some time with likeminded nerdiness, spend some time in the sun with my camera and forget my troubles for a few hours.
