A Midsummer's Day

Had a great lesson with the lad this morning. Rhonda really pushed me on more than I have done in a long while. I ignored the little voice in my head saying, "time for a break". We both need to move forward again.
Tootled around Aldergrove, picking up food supplies for me and all the beasties. It was a gorgeous day!!

Took some quick photos of some of the locals. A lot of people are keeping a llama or two with their goats and/or sheep. We've had a lot of very brazen coyotes lately. My friend with all the chickens has lost 14 since March.

This evening, I was crawling around the rafters of the barn, trying to get shots of the baby swallows. Here's their nest - empty- built on an old light fixture.

They were having flying lessons! That's why no one was in the nest. This little chap had been on the floor, and then made it onto an old feed bag to get away from me. The parents were quite agitated that I was in "their" barn taking pictures! I've also started the bridge painting again, hopefully in something strong enough that I find expresses what I feel about the old structure.

As always, your comments are most welcome.
And get out and enjoy the SUN!!!
