Backsies

It was great to get away... 

see the country....
do a little fishin'... 
(is there anything sexier than a man that can teach 3 varmints at a time how to fish?) 

give a brown butterfly some much needed love and attention...


frog catchin' (and releasing)....

surprise Alphabet Series "S." (also set free)...

a boy and his net...

there's some story out there about how this owl found it's way to my hubby's dorm room, 
but it remains a secret to this day. 
(please email me immediately if you went to Oneonta College in the 80's and have any information about the origins of this owl.)

this great heron forever eludes me...

lovin' the new dishware at Friendly's. 
(this is the oriental salad, hold the chicken. But don't leave without a happy ending sundae) 

wild fleurs...

it was a great place to breathe for a few days...

but it also felt good to come back home.

Looks like you guys had a great time. I love the Berkshires too. Thinking of heading up to Great Barrington next weekend for some music, food and drink. I'm getting frantic thinking the summer is coming to an end.

Amazing view...oh I love Friendly's!! They don't have them down here...very sad.

sounds like the perfect getaway and i love coming along on your trip, especially the frogs in a bucket and your approach on the bridge--is that the throg's neck?

:)
glad to have you back though for selfish reasons though!

Nice trip! And, wow, Friendly's has spiffed up their offerings since I was last there. Very funny about the owl...it would be a (pun alert) hoot if the internets turn up any clues for you. :-)

Welcome home! Looks like a lovely time was had by all, still it's always good to be back home!

That is an interesting dock!? Do you pop it in and out as needed?
