This week, it was a trip back to the bayou where the only dangerous thing we found was a particularly large aggressive tick which we conquered in short order. No alligators, Water Moccasins, or wild pigs - all which inhabit our stomping grounds. And, then, of course, there is my elusive large turtle that I have been stalking in that one pond for years. I told the girls - don't slam the doors, do not talk loudly, be very very very quiet - this huge turtle is very wary. All went well until Miss Amy, in her bright orange shirt, got all excited and moved in quickly in to get that perfect shot behind Miss Michelle. Well, the turtle was word to the wise on that "hunting jacket" Miss Amy was sporting and he took his swam dive off his favorite log back into the pond - he was not going to be "turtle soup" for anyone! A picture perfect moment for "another time". Can not wait until I can share with you "Mr Turtle", but, it will have to be "next time".
Your welcome to come join us on our once a week "treks". This one started at 6am. But, if we are doing a Gallery visit - it can start later in the day. Contact me if you are interested in joining us - we would be thrilled to have you along for the ride. I guarantee you that you will laugh until you cry with these girls - ya just never know what they are going to do next. This weeks trek included the clap board house on old 90, the Cypress swamps on old 90, the secret turtle pond, the Bayou Caddy Cemetery, and the nice friendly farmers yard we stopped in cos Miss Amy and Miss Michelle were enamored with "the roosters". You just never know where we are going to end up.
