Tim and I will be enjoying a lovely 3-day weekend this holiday!! I know that isn't the case for everybody but for those who are...yay you! Enjoy enjoy! Hope you have plans for something fun!
I have no idea how we will spend our weekend but I'm sure I will be reporting on it next week. And one thing you can count on, whatever we do, we will have fun doing it!
I realized, late yesterday, that I never posted the pictures from a short hike Tim and I took last weekend. It was impromptu, which is typical of us. Out doing a dozen other things and then suddenly get the urge to do something else!
In this case, as we were driving along, Tim spied the sign to the Rookery and, without a second thought, boom, turned in. Lovely!
The Venice Rookery is in the most unexpected place. It's just off a major road with lots of traffic and noise and businesses. It's behind a government building with it's own big parking lot. The road winds past all that, snakes through some sort of construction that's going on and another building and then suddenly in the midst of all of that mess, there is a covered area of picnic tables and benches facing a pond. That pond has an "island" in the middle of it and a narrow footpath around it. That is "The Rookery".
When we arrived there was not another person in sight, just the way I like it. We slowly walked our way around the pond, I took photos of course, and Tim responded to all of the bird calls. It was surprisingly peaceful, considering the proximity.
There wasn't the usual huge variety or volume of birds that we usually see there. Not sure why. But we enjoyed it just the same.
So now I guess we are all up to date with all my photos and reports. Taadaa!
Y'all have a wonderful Independence Day weekend however you spend it. Have fun, be safe and I'll be back on Tuesday!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
