The OFM got out of bed and piddled around for a bit then the Teams jumped on him about getting ready for the walk while it was still less that HOT. So he minded and we got out the door.
When we got to the end of the campground road and turned on the maintenance road for the soccer fields we were hit right in the nose with notice that fall has begun. Yesterday this bush was nice green all over. Just look at it now.
The walk continued in warm, humid no breeze conditions but we all finished in decent form. Along the is a tree in less than the best shape. Today there is a black fungus on the trunk of the tree about ten feet above ground. Here is a picture from a few feet away.
Then as we passed a couple of feet from the tree, the OFM got this closer picture of the bottom section of the black fungus. This is the first time the OFM can recall seeing a black colored fungus.
We return to the campground most of the time on a different route than we leave. As we return to the campground on this alternate route we are greeted by a very enthusiastic guard trying to make sure EVERY ONE IN THE STATE knows someone is walking by. And she does a good job of it.
The OFM did some house cleaning and putting things away today. He is getting started on the rolling get ready. Some traveling food was purchased and a food list was started so he has somewhere to write down our needs since there is no way he could remember it. Good Grief he even has OLD FAT MAN lettered on the bathroom mirror so he can find out who he is every morning.
Meanwhile we plan on getting is some golf practice for a little while tomorrow. The OFM finds that a decent way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
