The other day when I was sitting in my blind I saw a couple turtles sunning themselves along the edge. All of a sudden something goes swimming by them! Whoa! Are the beavers back? No...it was a muskrat.
|This house and barn look like something from an old western movie.|
We went back to the Gordon Dam for our walk this morning. The water is still rushing through. The first pic is from the quiet, calm side of the Flowage. The second one is the down stream side which is anything but quiet!
It was another really nice day and this batch of turtles were enjoying it as much as we did.
It was even nice enough for this turtle to come out and sun itself on the edge of the pond.
This may not sound like a big deal, but the way the weather's been up here, any sign of spring is appreciated.
Today Jim put up a new blind for me and I can't wait to spend some time in it taking pictures and watching whatever happens to come by.
See how brown it is around here? Anyway, it's good to be here and to go around to all our favorite places. This morning we took a walk at the Gordon Dam.
The water was really pouring through! Didn't see much for waterfowl, but these two loons were close enough for me to take their picture.
That's all for today, but I'll be out and about tomorrow looking for more signs of spring in the northland.
Proof again, it doesn't take much to make my day! Hopefully nobody saw me taking pictures of the nest.
