Anyhow, here are some of our pics from the walk.
The family always ahead of me. I walk so slow when I'm in the woods trying to take in every moment.
Kalib found this interesting growth of privet. It looked like a gateway - maybe to the land of the fairies - you never know when in the woods. I didn't get a good enough picture of it, but the camera couldn't get focused on him if it was zoomed out any further.
Hazel came along and here the kids are being kids and climbing on some fallen trees.
The highlight of the walk - a crane - we watched it land in the water and wade out deeper. We thought we might get to see it fish, but it never did because a person with a dog came running up on us watching it, but they are just majestic birds. I was thinking while we were watching it why doesn't it's legs get cold? I know it is biologically suited to be in water in all temps, but how? Something for one of you homeschooled students to help me figure out!
