Welcome to my quick takes of my happy memories from our fourth annual family and friends river trip to one of my favorite Texas rivers, The Guadalupe,seen through my phone's lens:
This area is healthy nature wise because there are so many bugs and insects around that we don't see as much in the neighborhoods at home (I blame fertilizers and pesticides).
Mosquito's (we see plenty of these)
We convinced ourselves the snakes we saw on the rivers banks didn't want to get in the cold water, being cold blooded and all. They didn't bother us.
We didn't mind sharing the river with lots of turtles,
They get their own take.
They don't bother us directly, just make a mess of any trash, or food in coolers. We have a double up the trash can system that has fooled them for the past two years.
They hide in and around the bathrooms at night.
I wish I had recorded seven year old Laurence's retelling of his discovery of a raccoon in the men's bath.
I would thinks it's frightening to find a raccoon hiding behind the potty, but to a seven year old boy.. it's the best story ever.
to soak in look at listen.
I saw this recently
And knew it was true
Then I noticed this on my phone
I am so happy for their friendship:
Here is Lilly's snap of me and my friend Traci having our morning coffee
The best thing in this over technological world
Nothing to do
Stuck in water
It's the best!
With little ones, it is lots of work,
you can see Interesting people and interesting tattoos.
Get great exercise.
Lots of smiles!
Vacation is good.
It is needed.
Friendships are blessings!
