Linking up with Ashley for her weekly Scavenger Hunt. I really did not think I was going to participate this week as I didn't really have time to take many pictures, until Saturday, more about that later, and even after I came home I was pretty sure I wasn't going to participate. However, after looking at all pictures I took and pulling a few from my archives, I was able to gather pictures to participate.
It has become a routine of mine to spend some time every night knitting. I learned to knit when I was a senior in high school. After the class was over I never picked up another needle until a few years ago when my daughter expressed interest in learning to crochet. I picked up knitting needles and taught her to knit instead!
Alright, this may be a stretch for music...a chorus of geese and swans.
On Saturday my photo buds, Shay and Cole, joined me at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. Middle Creek is known for the large number of snow geese and tundra swans that stop over for a break during their migration north. I had never been to Middle Creek and had no idea what to expect other than there would be thousands of water fowl. I picked Shay and Cole up at 4:30am to make the hour trip to Middle Creek. (We were told the best time to see the birds was the first hour after first light and the last hour before the last light of the day.) What we were not expecting was the very thick dense fog. After a very interesting drive in the fog we arrived at Middle Creek. When we opened the car doors we were greeted by a very large and loud chorus of geese and swans. We had no idea how many birds were there as it was still very dark and foggy. The fog didn't lift until long after the birds left the lake so we were not able to capture many shots. It was an amazing experience and will definitely something I do again!
In our house Apple has the market on most of our technology toys! The iPhone is mine and iPad belongs to one of my children! This picture came from my archives and I have to admit I was going to use this a few weeks ago for trending...!
4. SHOW ME YOUR STYLE
While we were waiting for the Geese and Swans to take flight, I turned around and saw this group of Amish teenagers, I thought of this prompt.
Again I might be stretching this a little bit but...
I love how the gates are mismatched causing them to not line up.
Thanks for stopping by this week as always I'd love to read your comments. Have a great week!
