Okay, it's Saturday, but where did my Friday go?? It was beautiful out yesterday but I did not get outside much, can't even remember much of what I did and here it is suddenly Saturday!! Have you ever lost a day in your week?? Hmmmm... Should I put out an "all points bulletin"? Nope, just have to chalk it up to too much going on in my life-ha!
A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I went for a ride to the landing on the Intercoastal Waterway. It was still a bleak, winter kind of day with gray skies and even grayer landscape but we found beauty and humor there just the same. In the woods near the parking lot was a "cat house". It seems there are wild cats roaming there and someone built them a shelter of sorts that is even labeled Cat House.
And hanging loose in the parking area, we saw two of them. They looked healthy enough but I felt sad to think they probably were not spayed and a cycle of wild cats would be propagated in this area that abuts an apartment complex. A sign is on the fence, do not feed cats, they are a nuisance to the residents. If I were rich, I would catch them, have them spayed or altered and let them live their lives out.
We still found beauty in the expanse of water and though the trees were quite dull, there were patches of green here and there and hubby and I enjoyed the quiet of the season. In summer the waterway is alive with boats, skidoos, water skiers and fishermen. Even some fishing from the bank for their suppers....
Quiet beauty... and here is a picture of exposed roots along the water's edge.
