Weather Changes ~ January 20, 2016
It is always just fun to walk the shore after all the rough weather we have had ~ just to see what kind of ice sculptures Mother Nature or Lake Superior has made. They can be some pretty awesome things some times.
Once we got down the shore the other direction, I took some photos of the old fish houses there. They had a bit of ice covering them also, besides the nice ice on the shore getting there. My new grippers on my hiking boots worked out nicely. I walked that slick, shiny ice the whole way down without any issues. I was still careful, since I don't appreciate taking a tumble and possibly ending up in Lake Superior. I prefer to pick and choose my own time and place to take a swim ~ thank you. I don't like breaking cameras either ~ because of nasty tumbles. So far, so good!
A couple of days ago, while putting out the morning treats after her early walk ~ which comes first ~ I got head butted by one of the year and a half old twins of Miz Spectacles. When I walk around with the 5 gallon bucket of corn, they are backing up in front of me all the way around. As soon as I stop to put a bit more out, the want first dibs ~ out of the bucket ~ not off the ground. One of the older bully does, Plain Jane, who hasn't had fawns in a while now ~ was being her usually crabby self and trying to kick eveyone's butt. One of the twins jumped back and sort of upward so fast we knocked foreheads together. I think I felt it more than she did! Since my face is usually only an inch or so from theirs, I can see that happening. However, it never has. I am always more concerned with watching their feet as they have some pretty fancy footwork when they are defending their stuff! So it goes........a new adventure or experience every day. When you have critters around, there is always something happening.
So.........it's still gray and still snowing........time to figure it out!
