While taking these photos tonight I received a startling surprise. If you know me, you know I am a sunrise and sunset chaser, but my husband is always fussing at me for straying off into deserted places to take photos.
I discovered another section of the Grand River today and was going to stop and check it out. When I pulled off the road to park a car approached and the man stared at me very strangely so I made like I was taking off and went down a little further to park. He made a u- turn and came back towards me, so then I threw the car back in gear and turned around going to the other side of the river. He passed me, turned left and parked on the left side of the street. So overtaken with annoyance I rolled my window down and shouted "What is your problem?" Of course I kept going but this was in the back of my mind all day. What DID he want? I only wanted a few pictures!
After Mom and I went out to eat today to celebrate Mother's day I got the itchy finger again to take pictures. I was at the lake. It was getting dark, and no one was there. I am always just a little nervous when I get out of my car and approach the lake on foot, maybe it's all those years of living in New York or maybe it's my nervous hubby. I went to stand under a tree. Hey, there are (finally) leaves, and this tree had loads of them! I moved them to the side to get a better view and I heard movement overhead. It was probably just the branches falling back into place I told myself, but several minutes later I STILL heard it. Something or someone was hiding in this big bushy tree! I peered up into the tree my feet frozen to the spot. I wondered what I would do if I was under threat, but there was nothing to concern myself as it was only a wood pecker. It was so dark and the tree so lush that my pictures of him or her did not come out, but at least I am still here to tell you about it!!
I hope you get some special time with your mom and or children. Thanks for visiting me today. Take care and God bless!
