Some friends are down visiting for the weekend and we took them out on the boat yesterday. We love sharing the beauty of this area with friends and one of our favorite things to do is to see the Shackleford Ponies. We really lucked out this time as we were able to get a good look at a very new baby.

We have an area in our front yard that's evolving into a little serenity garden...We've recently put up a reed fence and planted caladiums, hostas, and elephant ears. This is also the area where two of our cats and one of our greyhounds that have gone on are buried and last year we bought little markers for them. Anyway, we've also put up one birdhouse and a couple of bird feeders. The birds are happy...so are the squirrels! Squirrels are pretty ingenious little buggers. One of the feeders is "squirrel-proof"....but that isn't stopping them from trying!
I haven't caught it yet, but LoML's seen them actually hanging over the top of the feeder trying to figure it out. I think I'm going to have fun sitting on the swing (not pictured as I some how forgot to get a picture of it or the rest of the plants....maybe next time) and "spying" on the wildlife.

Last weekend I went to a function hosted by one of the horseman's associations I belong to. Getting there involved taking a local ferry across one of the sounds. The ferry left the dock at 7:45 a.m. and it was an overcast day.
