The day was very nice in spite of occasional light rain splatters. The only little bit of exercise we got was a walk past the golf course and back to the Castle. It was only 1.4 miles and a pleasant stroll. The impending occasional rains made the Teams not want to stray far from the Castle.



A couple of neat things happened on the walk. We have been walking this path for at least eight years on a regular basis and not noticed the impending incident.




This old tree is leaning out toward the walking path and four lane road. From the looks of it today, a good wind storm will sent it to the ground. With the OFM luck he will be walking past when the tree falls and not be able to get the camera in action fast enough.



Speaking of pictures not happening, we have been trying for a few years to get a picture of the frogs in the drainage we cross when walking this path. Today we actually got a picture of each of the elusive frogs. They usually wait until the OFM lifts the camera to his eye and them leap into the water the instant before the shutter clicks.



Today they posed with great pleasure for us to get a few shots of each of them. Finally, here are the Golf Course Frogs.






Since we were inside the Castle a lot today, we spent a lot of time coloring a painting AND finished it.





This one was inspired by a photo we took a few years ago. We hope you enjoy it.


It has been a nice day of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. LOVE the daffodils! Good job! Great pictures of the two-toned frogs, too. And, I wouldn't walk too close to that tree....

    1. Thank you very much. I kept track of the daffodils and it took just over 60 hours for me from start to finish.
