In These Troublesome Times
Butterflies hatched earlier this week
Tuesday morning there were butterflies everywhere there was a blooming bush for them to sip nectar. They had to get busy because they only get a couple of days to mate and lay eggs before they die.

I took a ride down to Turtle Bay after I exchanged read for unread books at the library today. It was beautiful along the river as I walked the trail near the Sundial Bridge.
Looking upstream at the Sundial Bridge
I observed some elusive mythological creatures as I walked on the edge of the pathway.
It was very exciting once I opened my eyes to the enchanted parts of the Turtle Bay experience. Bigfoot was hiding in plain sight pretending to be a piece of driftwood.
Not far from bigfoot, swimming quietly in a sandbar protected pool, was the Loch Ness Monster. I was lucky I had a camera with me. I seem to have taken the world's only clearly focused pictures of these elusive beasts.
The best was yet to come. For some reason I was compelled to look down in the grass on the other side of the path and there it was… A wood pixie.

What a day. What a great place to live. A world of wonders surrounds us with beauty and mystery. It is up to us to see and appreciate the magic of life on earth.

It’s a complex beautiful colorful world. What a gift.
