No Knitting, Just Nature
Today was a perfect day! It was about 72 degrees, and was a Saturday, so you know what that means, right?
We went to Stony Brook State Reservation, especially to see if Turtle Pond lived up to its name. It didn't, at least not today. Perhaps it will at some point, although turtles are usually one of the first herps out.
This is what we did see though:
Yup -- salamanders!! Lots of them!!!
We also saw a few red-tailed hawks but not pictures of them, and lots of cool fungus:
And also, this strange creature:
Hee hee. . .this guy was walking his dog named Remy. Remy obviously has no problems getting wet. He also is not at all shy around people:
He almost jumped on me, twice, but luckily obeyed his commands well. He was all around a good dog.
Kitties were in a real love-giving mood:
We kept the living room windows open for most of the day. I had nearly every window in the house open this a.m. Somebody was real happy with that:
OH!!! I almost forgot!!! We went to a nearby yarn store called Newbury Yarns. The owner recently opened a 2nd store on High Street in Dedham. It's a really nice, bright, beautiful store!! If you are curious, email me (zelia _and_ george at yahoo dot com -- just leave out the spaces and you know the rest!) and I'll give you the address, as I'm not sure if it is on that web page.
And to sweeten the pot of fondling yarn, a few doors down is this. Well, the Dedham one, not the Hyde Park one with the bowling alley attached to it. Maybe we'll hit that one tomorrow when we go to the zoo.
