It was a short Jeep snort over to the Hullett Marsh for an even shorter walk this morning. A sultry looking sky greeted us soon as we cleared our forest of trees here in the Park. The low cloud cover lasted all the way to the Marsh before skies began clearing.
LOW CLOUD COVER HEADING TOWARDS CLINTON AND THE HULLETT MARSH BEYOND
EARLY MORNING BEANFIELD
Temps were coming up quickly and the damn Deer Flies were biting. When we pulled into one of our favorite spots at the Marsh I saw a couple Blue Herons take off and then a couple more, and more. Never have I seen so many Blue Herons in flight. I counted 18 altogether and I know I missed some.
MANAGED A FEW BLUE HERON PHOTOS BUT THEY WEREN’T FLYING AND THEY WERE VERY FAR AWAY
TURKEY VULTURE DRIES IT’S WINGS SITTING ATOP A SWALLOW’S BIRD HOUSE
I DON’T KNOW WHAT KINDS OF BIRD’S THESE ARE
We were back home by 10 and aside from some straightening up in the carport I didn't get much accomplished. It was simply too uncomfortably humid for me and I had to retreat inside for the rest of the day. Kelly spent some time over at Deer Park Lodge visiting her daughters and grandkids.

We had two overnight guests Tuesday night and they slept in our Motorhome. Keenan and Langdon aged around ten and elevenish are two of Kelly's grandchildren. They along with their Mother Sabra will be heading home today after a couple days over at Deer Park Lodge. Kelly's daughter Rebecca is still at Deer Park until Saturday. Rebecca's husband Ricardo will be joining them late Thursday afternoon after work.

Just to give myself a bit of a boost today I went to the drawer and pulled out my ‘RV Loading’ list. You know, that list that has everything written down that has to be loaded into your RV before you leave home. What’s that………you don’t have things written down?? In reality I think most Snow Birds have these totally necessary lists because most of our aging brains are no longer equipped to remember things like which shoe goes on what foot. Without these important lists I'm sure there would be countless thousands of Snow Birds heading south each year with only half their feathers. I've had my list for 12 years now. It changes from year to year and you have to keep it current. Here's an example of just a few small things on my 'loading' list. Electric beard trimmer, email address book, 6 cases of peanut butter, spare watch and glasses, cell phone and case, laptop power cord, battery chargers, spare keys, Kindle, etc. etc. Believe me my list goes on and on and on from there. In my mind if I don't write it down then it don't exist. And if it don't exist I don't got it, so I am forever checking my 'loading' list to see what I do or don't got!! Why do I do that?? Because I gotta:))
THIS LITTLE SHOREBIRD SEEMS OBLIVIOUS TO THE LEAPING PYTHON AND 12 FOOT SWAMP GATOR……….OR WAIT A MINUTE, IS THAT A STICK AND A LOG??
SOMETIMES WHILE TAKING PHOTOS PHEEBS JUST LIES DOWN BESIDE ME AND WAITS
No change of plans yet regarding this coming winter's travels so we're still on track with things. Renewed our Passport America membership. Don't know if I've mentioned this but we are maybe not going to travel with our Shaw satellite dish this year. That would save us a few $$$$$. Just hate the thought's of having to deal with Verizon again for our internet in the States.
