Oh my gosh having to download everything again, learning new ways of doing this and that. Our old email address was gone and so now I had to learn the new one. My daughter when she set the blogging account up for me did it under the gmail act so that was good. It didn't change the emails and comments I received from readers. I just had to learn how to maneuver through it all. I have come a loooong way on doing things on a computer, I was pretty dumb on it before all this blogging took place, now I am pretty proud of myself how I get in there and just "do it." Knowing if I mess it up I have a daughter and son n law to bail me out. Thanks guys!
OK enough of that gibberish, I'll bet you wonder what we have been up to. Well lets see, camp hosting. I'm done LOL I still don't have wedding pictures to share they are on their way on a disc from Colorado so as soon as I can I will share them. I didn't take any with my camera. Now calm down I was too busy pinning on corsages, boutonnieres, and making sure this and that were going ok I didn't want to worry about photography. Besides there were three cameras going I was sure to get good pictures.
After the wedding was over we finished up at Turkey Run and headed back down to here, Hardin Ridge. That was such a huge relief to have full hook ups again. Dumping tanks with a 'blue boy' is not fun. Just ask Art hee hee....
We came back to more hummingbirds that I could ever dream of. We have 8-9 females and one male. I have to fill the feeders at least two of the three once a day.
The kids came down on the first Tuesday that we were back and we rented a Pontoon boat and went out on Lake Monroe. Holy Molly it was hot!!!
|Our newlyweds with Effie watching the water. (wanting to jump in I'm sure) and Miss Meredith. Look at her pink water shoes aren't they adorable? :)|
|She loves Effie and Cooper as they are smaller than her dogs at home. And Effie is so gentle with her.|
|Here they all are sitting on the edge of the boat soaking their feet. Wonder what they are looking at???|
|This! Meredith is playing on Hannah's legs soaking too. See Effie in Hannah's arms? It was so hot we put her and Cooper in water too just to cool off.|
|"Wave at me guys." They are so funny.|
He didn't look like a hawk but he didn't look like a young Eagle with or at least the ones I goggled.
|See how he is panting.|
|I think he looks like an Eagle here. But not sure. Anyway he was big and beautiful. (update) thanks to Karen and Judy this is an Osprey.|
|I am almost positive this is a pie-billed Grebe. He goes under water and comes up with fish.|
|He landed on the dock and walked back and forth like it was his runway. And what gorgeous legs they have :)|
|"And now in first place for the great muscle ton of the upper legs is our Great Blue Heron."|
Off the feather friends and onto Miss Effie. She has found a new place to ride on our golf cart and she did this all by herself. We tossed her bed up there one day and she jumped up in it and now has declared the "rumble seat" as her own. And the breeze just gently blows hers wire hair curls. :)
I will leave you this evening with one of my favorite places in the park. The trails. They are so well maintained and they always leave you with that feeling of what is over the next rise or the next curve.
I hope you all stay safe and well and take care from us here at Hardin Ridge.
|And in this case it was Sylvester the Squirrel.|
