Taking advantage of the beautiful weather, for January at least, was almost mandatory on Monday. The Great Swamp isn’t exactly teeming with visible wildlife this time of year, but we saw lots of ice sculptures. LF also spotted a red-headed woodpecker.
Another Day, Another Graveyard
We’re getting a little punchy here. It was a beautiful day — sunny and a nice temperature — to walk up-and-down the rows in three different cemeteries looking for headstones that matched the names. We got a lot of exercise, but didn’t find too much of immediate use. Still, with views like this how can you complain?
In Search Of William J. Lackey
In the 1870s, some time after being discharged from the Union Army, the Lackey family lived along this road.
Yesterday a friend and I took advantage of the beautiful weather go out and take some pictures in the Swamp. August is the “high season,” with lush flowering shrubs and plants, plus abundant frogs and turtles. Lots of turtles.
