These boats are not only great to look at, but their owner/drivers are a great bunch of guys willing to answer many questions about their boats with smiles on their faces! Thanks for a great show guys!

Lucy, ever the optomist, spent her time chasing squirrels up trees in the hopes of catching one and fishing for whatever she sees moving in the pools of water in the creek. While she has absolutely no hope of attaining anything from her intense efforts she never tires of it and never gives up. I admire her spirit.
I always feel more connected to myself after spending some time down there. It is nice to listen to the birds sing and the squirrels chitter. Even nicer to be able to hear oneself think for a change. Life here in the everyday world is so hectic and noisy that one forgets to seek that inner place of calm waters and soft music.
Speaking of the real world.... time for me to get ready for a family dinner.

We then wandered our way through some of the alley's with little shops in and around the market and came upon a chalk art competition they were hold on one of the side walks. Some of them were very creative like this one that appears to be a drawing from a children's book with the hand that holds the drawing coming out of the drains!

The bog was filled with wild flowers of all different colors and sizes making me sorry I had never learned the names of these beautiful plants. I always feel better outside, all my tiredness seems to evaporate and my mind begins to slow down and rest a little. With Lucy happily running along side me we strolled from path to path not realizing how late it was getting.
I realized that it was about time for the resident owl to come out and started searching in the usual places I had seen him. On the last path way just as I had given up Lucy ran toward a tree branch and I saw something fly above my head.
