Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

A chilly day at the beach.....................

Laura and myself do some crazy stuff. It's a wonder we don't get hurt sometimes. That usually involves animals but we do lots of silly things. I taught her well (eye roll).
Well this Monday, a week or so ago (when my computer was gone) we went to the beach. It was a cold day but we wanted to get out.
The beach was empty just as we like it. I love this time of year. The weather is milder and as the leaves turn its very pretty.

We were not looking for stones this day but, well when you see a Petoskey stone, can you pass it by?

Only a few trees had changed. It should be the peak sometime this week.

We didn't see any animals. Sheesh!!!!! A couple of butterfly is all. We went up through the woods just in case there was something to see. When we got off the beach (Otter Creek) we stopped to look at the river. We saw BIG rainbow trouts in there. Very pretty.

The rest of those roads was mainly farm land and the conservation for the national park has saved many that can be explored.

Not a lot to see, no birds, no deer, nothing up in the woods. When we got back down Laura noticed a snake and chased it off the road. This guy was not so lucky. Poor thing.

We did stop at a ruin that we always pass by. Nothing to see though

Up in the woods we passed some riders. Always pull off the road or go slow passed horses. You never know. When I had a horse people could be really stupid, some liked to see the horses act up and would scare them.

Oh I forgot, we did see one deer. It was bounding across a meadow and stopped to enjoy some apples

Later on Laura picked some pears from a field that used to be a farm. we did see two Bald Eagles on that road but no pictures. I love these silo's and I think I take a picture every time.

On the way home the county had finished the bike path that now joins the trails and we were able to get a good look at this lake. We remember years ago it was just a swampy area and the trees died as it got bigger. Now its a lake. There is a farm there and the lake is almost up to the barn now. Unless the park service do something they will loose the barn. Its good to see nature working

On our way home we took a detour along a country road we like. Stopped to talk to this girl who is pregnant

She seems lonely. Across the road were her friends and family. I have stopped eating beef and pork. However I wish all cattle could live out their lives in wonderful pastures like this.

They were very curious and came down from the woods and back fields to check us out. The old bull in the back field was not happy though so we didn't stay long.

I love cows. I have had a few experiences with them though and learned a few lessons. Cows are curious so don't ever run, they will think you are going somewhere and run after you. Trust me, I know.
