Friday’s Hunt v4.9

Friday’s Hunt

Sorry to skip out on you last week, we traveled again to celebrate another birthday–mine! 

This week we’re looking for Starts with I, Bowl, and Desire.

Starts with I: Irrigation

One of my favorite pastimes is taking the road less traveled. What better birthday gift than a backroad cruise?

Bowl

Sure, this is a platter, but I wouldn’t have minded having a bowl of this! I guess I didn’t have time to focus and get the entire word ‘birthday.’ Ha! Yes, I shared the calories with the kids.

Desire

The desire was strong to check out that hammock–but it was on personal property and we heeded the ‘No Trespassing’ sign. Isn’t this inviting? (Another ‘I’ word!) It’s surrounded by the Rappahannock River.

Wild Bird Wednesday #213-Osprey

Wild Bird Wednesday

Mid-August, we wandered some back roads along the Rappahannock River on our way home after a weekend with family. The Osprey perched on this limb where it had a literal bird’s-eye view of the river. Evening approached, time to look for a little something for dinner, and fish was on the menu. 

The camera lens extended into digital zoom, and I shot from inside the car, elbows anchored on the door to serve as a tripod. Frame after frame, I couldn’t get a clear shot. I finally realized the car’s idle caused enough vibration to interfere with clarity. Hubby shut off the engine, I got this shot, and called it a day. 

Below is one of about a bazillion reasons (slight exaggeration) to stay inside the car. It’s yellow-fly season, and those little buggers bite! On vacation a couple years ago, I had a run-in with them. Apparently, I tasted a lot better than hubby. They drew blood! We didn’t stay on that beach long.

Patiently waiting on the other side of my car window.
