Afternoon at Pelham

Last Friday we went to Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, New York in the afternoon and had a 3 mile hike around Hunter Island. The views are lovely, but it was hot and buggy. After that we drove to the Lobster Shack on City Island to buy a take out. While parked off the road in a driveway a crew cab pickup truck scraped the paint off the edge of our side mirror. The list of mishaps grows long for our little VW Jetta “James”. We’ve only had it a couple of months.

    sorry to hear James got a close shave! Going to ask a friend about that mushroom?

      I bought James some touch up paint. I will investigate that huge fungus. I’ll try iNaturalist first.

        I talked to a friend and she thinks it might be a “Chicken Of The Woods” in late stage?

          Maybe. It was not very fleshy. The “leaves’ where thin. I also thought it might be that but wasn’t convinced.

    Beautiful images, and that mushroom, you should post it online to find the name of it, it is intriguing. Looks like a most excellent voyage

      Thank you so much. I’ll look into that mushroom sometime. So busy house hunting no rtime for much else.

      Thanks. I like to take the time to process them in Lightroom — today’s dark room.
