A Nice Day Out



A little boy
wanted to see
how many birds
could swim in the sea.

His father said
with a twinkling eye:
"about as many fish
as can fly in the sky."


Featured: after days of proper winter
we are enjoying clear skies
and much appreciated sunshine.

  26. Hi,
    What a fun collection of photos. Tell me about the pile of wood? Do you use it for cooking, heat or just to enjoy a fire outside on the patio?
    My parents burn wood to heat their home. We have a bakery in town that burns wood to bake bread in a huge oven. And we love to have camp fires to sit around and share stories.

It will be a while before it will look like this, because of the extra rain and snow everything is soaking wet and little streams coming down from the mountains!
