the campin' extravaganza continues!

so in case you need a mind refreshification, me and asa and mama and daddy were campin' and had just made it through a mega storm that lasted all night!  daddy got our camp fire blazin' again, and we had a way delish breakfast of bacon 'n eggs!  nommy!
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!!!

I really do understand about how excited you got over the Heron!! I used to see them all the time when I had my pontoon boat... They were like something from Jurassic Park when they screech/honked and fur sure when they FLEW!!

What a Grrrreat time you had. I LOVE how brave you BOTH were over the scary wooden bridges!!!

sprinkles said...

That blue herron is really pretty.

Y'all had such a fun adventure on your camping trip. You were much more brave than my boys would've been.

Kristin G. said...

Way to conquer your little, tiny bridge fears! I knew you could do it. I'm looking forward to the rest of your saga. Happy Thursday!

Hoke said...

Swimmin in the lake!! Are you part duck?! I would sink to the bottom and they make me wear this stupid life jacket if i'm anywhere near the water...I look like a little kid but little do they know, I wouldn't go in the water if you paid me all the bones and treats in the world. Have fun!!!

Zona said...

Oh, yeah, Mom used to go to Lake Hartwell when she was a youngster so she knows where you're talking about! Wish we had a lake that big in our yard!
