Finally I am getting around to posting our neat sightings on our nature walk the other day. As well as Stephen’s heroics, we saw some fantastic wildlife–not bad for a troop of five noisy boys.
The turtle was very interesting. I don’t know anything about turtles and wasn’t sure how fast this one could move or if it liked to bite. It watched us very closely and as we carefully walked around it turned to watch us as we passed. We also spotted a great blue heron flying over the lake and some kind of furry creature we couldn’t identify swimming in the water. Oh, and the giant mosquitoes of course! The boys made the 1 1/2 mile hike to the church without stopping to rest. We had a snack by the lake before heading back again.
