Mark Googins of  26 Wildwood Blvd shot this video  June 26, 2012. Two adult parents and three kits had taken up residence under the deck, and were often seen out playing nearby.

Just added to the Wildwood photo album.

Tennis Anyone?

We are looking to see who might be interested in weekday evening tennis on a regular basis so we can coordinate the times.

In the past, 2 time slots were proposed to optimize prime time mid-week. 5:00-6:30 for those who can escape the office early and 6:30-8:00 as the second time period.

Please let Mary Ann know if you are interested in a “special” time to play at marybradford@maine.rr.com

We “think” the Kids Tennis Program will be on Monday nights……exact time to be determined soon.

In the meantime (and anytime), a sign-up note at the court will reserve time so no one is disappointed.

The court is ready for action!

Eagle sitting on ledge directly off Wildwood Beach, close to Cousins Island.

Spotted July 10, 2009. Sorry the iPhone doesn’t make its eagle-ness obvious, but it fluttered a couple of times — definitely a bald eagle. (Click photo to enlarge)

Seal pup photos

Here are some pictures of the Seal Pup who was on the beach last week.

After his Mom didn’t come back to get him the Dept of Marine Resources came to pick him up and he was off to Mystic Ct!!
— Gail Graumnitz

There is a pup seal on the beach.  The seal rescue authorities are monitoring the seal (have been all day).   They think the mother has placed it there while she goes off for food; apparently possibly for as long as two days.   They have asked that no dogs be allowed near the pup and that people stay quite far away.  They fear that if the mother sees people or dogs near the pup, the mother will abandon the pup.    If the mother does not return, they will intervene to care for the pup.
