Bleys and Carmen are here, to get some wedding stuff done.
We went to our friend’s house for a party, and I swam and played Marco Polo and stuff with all of the young ‘uns. 🙂
We went with our friends Scott and Rachel on the Chassahowitzka River.
We visited Seven Sisters Spring and “The Crack.” Trav and I went through the longer cave for the first time today… it was fun!
To the right, you can kind of see the entrance to the bigger cave. It’s about a ten foot swim to the other side.
I feel bad when we have to remove stuff from the yard, even though it’s so we can have nice things. I take some solace that our changes will make different opportunities for wildlife in our yard. Maybe a bunny or a snake will come live in the brush pile!
Thanks, Dad! You and Michael are my best and most faithful readers.
They cut down some trees out front today, as part of power line maintenance, and it inspired us to do a little trimming of our own.
I love going on a trip, but it’s hard when Trav stays here and I go. I miss him, and our kitty, and our bed. Everything, really. I usually get very homesick around the 4th or 5th day, and this trip was no exception. But it was taken away by talking with Trav on the phone and then seeing my family.
He recently went to a game development conference in Boston, to help his son promote a new online game. They made some sales!
I’m very lucky to have a good partner who tries hard to understand me and to make our lives better every day.
5th/24th Anniversary trip up the Weeki Wachee! We started at Rogers Park and went all the way up to the springs, then back down. It was a blast. Paddling upstream is a little challenging in places, and I learned a lot about steering and paddling on this trip. Lunch was chipotle chicken lettuce wraps and jicama sticks, with Dove chocolates for dessert. We saw two snakes, a raccoon, slider turtles, a snook, and lots of other fish which I’m working on identifying. The birds were plentiful with anhinga, cormorant, duck, ibis, herons, a grebe, and George the bald eagle. We saw a pair of great blue herons fly gracefully into their nest, calling to their babies all the while. Plus I got a new bird to mark in my book, the Louisiana heron.
It’s new to me, anyway. I got Trav’s phone after he upgraded. Now I don’t have to worry about space for a long while and it has some really nice features. My wallpapers are pictures from the Hubble telescope and just beautiful to look at.
