Home again, home again

Looks like the mini vacation has ended and it is back to a normal routine. I have various and sundry photos and recollections of people, places, and things. It continues to be ultra humid and hot. Yesterday it was in the 90s.These prehistoric animals reside way out in the middle of the country in a place called "Nature's Art." It is a fun, educational place for kids and adults and we stopped by for an ice cream though we have been there on other occasions for viewing the dinosaurs and shopping.

It must be the Year of the Great Blue Heron.
We are seeing the great blue herons constantly. They are so focused when they fish that they don't seem to mind being photographed. This one was in a swamp a few miles down a dirt country road. We agreed that we had never seen them in New England until the 1970's and now they are abundant like turkeys and swans.

The workaday week begins again and there is much catching up to do here after not spending much time at home and on housework. I will have to be content with watching the flora and fauna in my own backyard until we hit the road again.

Enjoy your day!
