This week it rained for three days straight. It’s always good to get rainfall, but that was a little too much. With the beavers gone, it caused the dam to get washed out even more and the water level in the pond is dropping. But that’s okay, it’s all part of nature. This shows the water rushing through the opening.
All the rain has caused the lake levels to rise too. The pier on this lake is under water. I know, this is nothing compared to the flooding going on all over the country. I feel very bad for all those people and their communities.
Last night we heard there was a sink hole on our road and had to go investigate.
Apparently the old culvert gave out. The workers replaced it and now it’s just another bump in the road.
On our way back to the cabin, we saw this deer that was totally freaked out by a turtle. It was really funny watching her. She should’ve run off when our truck came along but she couldn’t take her eyes off that turtle.
Finally she ran off, but not very far. Even from the edge of the pines, she couldn’t stop looking at that turtle!
I'm the female version of "Jack of all trades, master of none". I make bottle cap pincushions as well as other items made with felt and sell them in my Etsy Store, Up The Creek. I make most of these pincushions while at our cabin in northwest Wisconsin. Our cabin is right "Up the Creek" from an active beaver pond. There's always something going on out there. Birds and other wildlife are abundant Up the Creek. I try to get good pictures of bird and wildlife and will post them, even if they're not award winners. My goal is to share what I see. Not to win any medals.
