Looking to the South at Eagle Lake Narrows.
A pre-Fall day.
Warm sun, cooler air.
The illusion of continuing Summer.
Marine Iguanas are cold blooded and depend on the environment to regulate their body temperature. They become very lethargic when temperatures are lower. Grouping together while lying in the sun collects and preserves the heat they need to be able to move quickly.
I grew up with red brick houses.
Had I been born on the Prairies, I suppose I would not have had the exposure to the warmth and regular patterns of brick walls. Brick is rare out there.
New home construction these days uses almost no brick, opting instead for other materials. The brick facade (front wall brick, the rest siding) seen on some houses is the ultimate in fraudulent design.
Is brick laying a dying art?
