Sunday was a beautiful day, but the wind was just a bit chilly at times. Puttered around home in the morning; Larry working on some raised beds for a kitchen garden and me in the house. At lunchtime we headed out for a Sunday drive, cameras and Lexi. We drove up around Clyde and did the loop. First stop was Briar Hill where we found swallows (no photos though - they were moving too fast), swamp sparrows and myrtle warblers. Next stop was near my grandparents home, we didn't go to the property - I didn't have the heart to visit the place; recently it was broken into once again and vandalized. We did run into my cousin, her husband and two children out for a drive, perhaps thinking the same thing - revisiting places of the past. It was her grandmother that recently died, a sister to mine. At least once a year I make this pilgrimage to the past and usually memories come flooding through - only happy ones these days. Saw another Myrtle Warbler at the bridge here - they are among the spring warblers that arrive. Next, a brief stop at the cemetery - Mayflowers are blooming in abundance there and I'm sure we got ticks. We stopped next at an old farm house neither of us had been to in many years, the gate was open and the owner there. He showed us all through the house and we stayed for a "yarn". Down to Clyde River, Thomson's - we did take out for supper and had it at home. It was a nice afternoon.
Time to wake up. Enjoy your day!
