I had the day off today, so DD and I ran errands to credit union and Dad's house to check mouse traps and the mailbox.
We then went to the State park on Lake Huron and hiked the Tobico Marsh trail.. Lots of people walking dogs, Springer spaniel, German Shepherd, Labs, bloodhound, shelties, ..
I almost stepped on a frog as it got ready to jump into the cattails, but it made a getaway.
We got to the weir to check out the flow from the marsh to the lagoon and I spotted acute little river otter.. DD kept saying it was a squirrel(city slicker!!) would not take a picture of it,, finally when it was too late, she admitted it was an otter. We got so much rain here that the beaver dams are breached, floods everywhere in the park.
It was a great hike until it started to rain. You would have thought we were made of sugar the way we hot-footed it to the car!! A nice morning..
