We sat here and had our coffee overlooking the South River, this was an important waterway for the Native Americans in this area. Once again, if there is a place in this country that the Indians liked, then there is a a very good chance that is a place that I want to visit. I would like to see this in the Spring. On this walk, we saw two deer, a bluebird, a downy woodpecker, several squirrels and sad to say, two dead creatures... a possum and a hawk...that is nature, I suppose.
We thought we had enough time to get around this lake but the lake was bigger than we thought...are we going to make it back to our car before dark?
You can always count on Richard to take a good photo of the sun setting.
There! We made it! The lake was pretty and I can see that the trail will be really nice in the Spring and Summer...but I really love the walks over Arabia, so we think we will leave this trail for others to enjoy!
So thankful that we were able to get this walk in, we think that we walked for almost four miles! It was about 75 degrees on Thursday afternoon, but after the rain we had today...it is expected to be 33 degrees tomorrow morning! That is what our weather is like in Georgia, you never know what to expect...pay attention to the forecast but hope for the best. Kind of like life itself, isn't it?
And hey, I don't know what made me think of this gorilla walking upright but have you seen it? It's a really amazing sight for me... we have a very nice area for gorillas at Zoo Atlanta, but I never once in all the years of observing them saw any of them stand up and walk like this one. Fascinating to me...
And I wrote about Willie B., our famous gorilla who was born free but lived most of his life at the zoo in Atlanta, back on Nov. 2, 2011, if you would like to read it, here is the link to do so: http://georgiagirlwithanenglishheart.blogspot.com/2011/11/willie-b-and-me.html
