Take A Hike; A Little Something For The Ducks

We decided to take a day off today, partly because the weather is going to be rainy for the next couple of days, so we wanted to go for a walk and put in some reading and quilting time respectively. After breakfast, we dug out the walking poles and hiked a trail that begins at the edge of the campground and follows Oak Creek for about a kilometre. It is part of a bird sanctuary. Apparently over 100 bird species have been spotted here, although all we saw was ducks, the heron, and a couple of smaller birds we couldn’t identify. It was very pleasant.

This was how a large part of the afternoon was spent:

The quilting activity attracted the notice of a very nice older couple from Seattle, who are visiting friends and family in the area. We will probably go to Saturday night Mass with them, then have dinner together at the restaurant we ate at last night.

These two came to see if they could help, but they settled for bread instead

About 4:00 the clouds and rain rolled in, so we headed for the clubhouse, watched some TV and cooked supper in the kitchen facilities. The rain is supposed to continue for the next two days, so we’re not sure what we are going to do yet.
