Now we do not have the cold and snow of Gary in NY or Mel and Dar in Wisconsin, but it ain’t warm like it is supposed to be.
Sherry had a great Mother’s day yesterday, Jack Jr. came up and brought Mark’s card. Jack brought her a card and a giant chocolate Cheese cake from the Cheese cake factory. We put on a pot of Super Frog Fuel and ate a BIG piece of the Cheese cake to go along with it.
Today it is a little cool but we needed a walk especially after the cheese cake. This is a big park with ample areas to explore in the woods. I took the camera along, Now I don’t know too many flowers, so I don’t know this pretty thing:
Flowers seem to be more beautiful in a rustic sitting. there were only three stalks.
On around the lake and into more woods. My girl can spot blooming Blackberry bushes from a mile away.
These are blooming along this gravel road. This is actually a smaller patch. She is already crying because we won’t be in NC at BB picking season.
I am a thinking this is an Indian paint brush, but I am not sure. It is actually redder than the picture shows.
Winding around the gravel road we came to this tilled bottom land, roughly 20-25 acres. I thought of Dar & Bill and potatoes up in WI (If they ever get spring) Gonna have some good growth of tobacco or corn here. I took this picture as we turned back into the woods to find our way back to the park. In about 15 minutes guess what we spied:
A small pioneer grave yard. I had seen it on the park map, but I thought it would be really set off as a place of interest. But there it was with this sign that I noticed as we started to leave:
The sign reads:
Don’t feed the bears.
I thought that was a nice combination of notices. LOL
One more picture of one more of the ten or so grave markers. I could read 1822. (Elizabeth, an 11 yr old girl)(?)
We had a good walk, Mondays are good days at RV parks, the working folk with children must leave us retirees and do what we used to do, go to work and get kids off to school.
Thanks for coming along on our 3 mile walk.
One day in your life you are going to realize, if you didn’t do it, you are not going to.
(I took that from Ma’s Blog awhile back)
I thought this was cute, the rest of the Smart car.
