the storm had passed and left a most beautimous 'n sunshiney day, so we decided to go on a big hike. we picked a trail called the nature walk that would take us through the woods and by the shores of lake hartwell.
|me 'n asa decidin' which trail to take!|
we set off with asa leadin' the way cuz she is the bestest navigator!
|follow the leader!|
at first, i was a smidge full of the nervosity since there were all these super skinny wooden bridges to cross. even way brave asa wasn't too sure about them.
|i don't know how i feel about this...|
|asa tried to go into the ditch instead of across the bridge!|
but there were seriously like 50 gazillion of these bridge thingies, so we had to get used to them really quick like!
|we've so got this down now!|
|we're not scared of you anymore, little wooden bridge!|
asa was feelin' uber spunky. she's gonna be 9 years old in october, but look at her jump this log! 9 is the new 4! teehee.
|she's got ups!|
we came out of the woods right up on the shore of lake hartwell. mama was too slow with the camera, but right when we approached, a hooge 'n handsome grrreat blue heron stared us down and then took off into the sky!!
|the heron was snooterin' around in the waters lookin' for fishies!|
|this is a grrreat blue heron! thankies to wikipedia for this pic!|
asa went crazy go nuts over the heron, and dragged mama to the water. asa sniffed 'n sniffed everywhere. i did, too. we were really interested cuz we had nevarrr evarrr seen a grrreat blue heron before!
after our heron sighting, we were all gettin' the rumblies in our tummies, so we headed back to camp to make lunch. i overheard mama say somethingie to daddy about goin' back to the lake for swimmies after lunch!!!
