Photos From this Weekend

Be forewarned that the following photos are quite random!

Actually, if you followed along with me yesterday when I took a ride to Woodville, these photos would make perfect sense!  I decided to take the time to photograph things that caught my eye along the way. So, here we go….

This boat was parked alongside the road near the boat launch.  The name really captured my eye… what a terrific name for a fishing boat!

I parked along the road and walked over to the boat launch, not wanting to get in the way.  There was so much activity!  Boats were going into the water, coming out of the water, and waiting in line in and out of the water!  People were also fishing on the docks.

I am always on the lookout for “new” things and was happy to spot a new sign!

Hmmm….like they say, you learn something new every day!

I posted the two goose photos yesterday in great haste, as we were getting ready to take the kids down to the Teen Skate.  I had made mention that when I arrived at the area where they were, the big goose was acting a little “funny”. In the following photo,  you can see why I was unable to accurately “read” the goose. This was the first of the series of photos I took and as I was “snapping away”,  I never saw that tiny little leg behind the parent’s leg!

In all honesty, I squeaked with delight when I saw the little one wander out in front of the parent goose!

I lingered with the geese for about five minutes, then left,  not wanting to disturb either of the pair. As I drove back toward home,  I pulled over in another little spot where vehicles had worn the grass off the area.  I had to take a picture of the signs…..

Woodville is situated at lake level, coming off a steep hill from the north.  I drove back up the hill, keeping my eyes open for anything interesting to photograph.

Well, I thought this was interesting!

Yes, this is Bristol Springs Free Church. (“Free” not meaning fees are typically charged at chuches! The term signifies that this is, rather, a non-denominational community church)

Do you remember this church had a fire in the “steeple” last summer when it was struck by lightning? Well, a new “crown” was fashioned and I saw workmen using ropes and such to place it a couple weeks ago.  I kept wanting to photograph this,  but I had to park and walk around to get photos without all sorts of utility lines in the pictures!

I love the gingerbread! And, it really does kind of resemble a crown, doesn’t it?

Across from the church were some Forsythia bushes gone WILD!

There is a small restaurant nearby with extremely limited parking available.  I love their sign regarding where NOT to park…..

One more photo….this one from today.  As I was working early this afternoon,  I looked out the window and was surprised to see a pair of Mourning Doves perched in the tree!

I’ve never seen doves near the house before!

The weather yesterday and today has been uncomfortably warm. (at least for me!) Tomorrow is promising a “scorcher” according to the weatherman.  I had a headache on and off all day today…probably from heat! We are assured the weather will cool off come midweek.  I am looking forward to then!

  1. I will have to show Kyle the turtle crossing sign, he will get a kick out of it. That baby goose is adorable. How exciting! My forsythia has just started blooming, but I cut it way back last year, so it is a little bare in spots, unlike the one in your picture. The picture of the doves is great. I keep meaning to photograph the two in my backyard, but never have the camera when I see them. I saw a bunch of boats today too. Check out my blog…

  2. Love the name on the boat. A fishing boat for sure! I’ve seen a good number of those historical signs looking like they need painting. I always wanted to be the person who goes around and paints them.

  3. Wow, are you alway so observent or does having a camera along encourage you to really look around!

  4. Frances, if I were to write a book about my life in the past few years, it would probably be entitled “My Life Through the Lens”!

    Having said that, I will also admit that all of my life, I have suffered from “Starry-eyed Syndrome”! (which, of course might be a direct contribution to my severe “Icannotdomath Syndrome”!

    Seriously, I have ALWAYS been the one to “stop and smell the roses”, losing all track of time, responsibility, and obligation! Life without the lens can be a real struggle!!!!!
