Little Bear's Adventure's
Turtle in the Pool
Beth rescued him from the swimming pool. For a short while, he was my new friend.
Looking at the Lake
We didn't really talk, but I could tell what he was thinking... when he stared off at the lake.
On the Rocky Bank
I knew my fun was over, when he spotted that water. That's okay. I told him to go have a nice swim.
I can still call him my friend, even if we never see each other again, right?
On Sunday, we had a picnic in a park in Llano. We were too late for the annual Llano Fiddle Fest, but the park was filled with lots of other fun things. Here I am sitting beside a door made out of sand.
Beth didn't have the nerve to reach over the rope near the Do Not Touch sign. She made her sister place me on the castle. Beth claimed she was a rule follower and she didn't want to fall and destroy the castle.
I say, Beth doesn't have a very good sense of adventure.
Maybe these two photos don't look very exciting, but after my sand castle adventure, I enjoyed some daring rock climbs!
I don't know who built this rock creation, but I was hoping it was made by a very smart builder. I climbed to the top and luckily it didn't collapse underneath my weight.
And here is another creation that could have toppled! But from my spot, on the tip-top rock on the right, I made my plan...
"If I feel the least bit of trembling beneath me, I will do a swan dive into the bluebonnets below!
That very thought put me at ease.
Every year I pose with some Bluebonnets. At least I'm not the only one.
Kids, babies, pets and even smooching couples pose in the flowers along the road. At least in Texas they do.
We took a drive near Enchanted Rock on Sunday. There were lots of Bluebonnets along the road, but I was getting tired of those.
I begged to climb up the stem of something with no bluish-purple color. I love the orangish color of Indian Paintbrush!
We found the same combination of flowers near some old train tracks.
On Barbed Wire
Beside the tracks I saw some barbed wire and climbed up so I could sit right beside a flower. I sat in the warm sun and sniffed in the spring smells. Not bad.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
