Bath Time

We get more joy out of watching the birds in our bird bath. Who doesn't love cheap entertainment? The other day we caught this little guy out there. We hadn't seen him before.Sorry the pics were taken thru the window. We have no clue what kind of bird he is. At first he seemed reluctant to take a bath. I think he was asking the angel what he was suppose to do next.Then Mr. Blue bird came and offered his advice.Finally he got it right.

A Recent Trip

This week we just returned from out annual trip to the beach. For us, fall is the perfect time to go; no crowds, weather is usually a little cooler, and it's cheaper. We had a great time even with all the rain.One of the highlights this year was getting to see my brother and sil. They too had gone to the beach the same time so we got to have lunch with them.The water was just gorgeous! I could sit and watch it all day long.It felt good to rub my toes into the sand. Lou, this pics for you girl!This was the view from our balcony. I think I could get use to seeing that everyday.

Hope you are having sunny days in your part of the world.

Findings from Monday

We took a little drive up the road Monday just to get out for a bit. We drove up to an area called Riverbend. This is where my hubbie and family/friends use to go skiing years ago. It's right off the Natchez Trace Parkway.There was a group of people who had gathered and they were all driving these.
Pretty huh?Some of ya'll may remember driving around in these but that was just a little before my time. But personally I could definitely see myself driving around in that pretty orange/red convertible.
There were lots of big lily pads floating. Some were blooming but I couldn't get a very good picture.This guy seemed to be enjoying himself as much as we were. I hardly noticed the mosquitoes that were having lunch.Up the road a bit at a boat launch we saw this man taking his doggie out for a ride on his seadoo. Glad to see he put a lifejacket on him.

It's always fun to get out and go for a little drive. You just never know what you are going to see.
