DD and I walked through the state park yesterday,, while she was snapping pics of the family of swans, three cygnets and the parents, I looked across the lagoon and saw a doe and her two fawns, just out of spots. Strolling along about 60 yards from us I tried to get DD attention, but I am not sure if she got the camera in position in time.
In the past month, the water levels are so low, there is no water flowing from the weir that connects the marsh,which is a higher elevation, to the lagoon which is a huge pond that flows into Lake Huron.
We then went to the library book sale of hundreds of thousands of used books. It was the last day of the sale at the ice arena, so they were very inexpensive!! $3.00/box,, a huge banana box!!!!!!
I got lots of random books, but my two prizes are an Erma Bombeck hardcover that I have never read(the only one I have not read) and a Clive Cussler hardcover.
DD bought about eight or ten, I did not count, but would guesstimate about30, plus hers for $6.00!
One year I found some very old Operetta song books from the turn of the century. I believe they are from an Opera House that stood on the banks of the river here in the 19th century. I paid $.20 each for them.
