A Fourth of July Picnic

     Since I have American visitors I had a picnic today. 

We walked through the Gaetz Lake Sanctuary

We found some sort of leaf roller.

My picnic. Notice the millions of people in the area! I do live in a sparsely populated area.

  7. You are fortunate to be alone, here you stumble over the crowds in nature, especially when the weather is warm.

  9. I loved meeting your family! Your picnic in a nice quiet park is delightful. Here, where we live the 4th turns into a busy dreadful holiday of drinking, driving and fights. We stay home and let everyone at it!

  10. That leaf roller thing is interesting. Never seen anything like that. Does a bug live in there, like a cocoon or something?

  14. We have hunkered down for the weekend. Away from the citiots and the tourists! Crazy people!
    Looks like a fun one, even with rain in the afternoon. We've had rain all day. Grumpy cats.

    1. Rainy days are some of my favorites. I like to walk in the rain. I also like some songs about rain. How about "I Love a Rainy night"
