This is the first time I have worked with John on one of his projects at the refuge. As we were finishing up I got something in my left eye. I tried washing it out but nothing helped. When we got back to the RV Judy loaned me a couple of eye cups to try. Nothing worked and my eye really started to hurt. To make a long story short.....I ended up at the eye doctor's office. The doctor removed a piece of a leaf stuck under my eyelid. It was very small but it felt like a boulder.
Yesterday Judy and I worked on the Purple Loosestrife Project. We checked several trails. As we were leaving the Omegash Trail area Judy spotted a patch of Purple Loosestrife on the side of the road next to a ditch. Check out Judy's Blog.
We are always on the look out for wildlife and have our cameras ready....just in case. On one of our stops we were treated with the sight of five loons on a lake. We watched them take flight and sing their beautiful song. I think they are my favorite water fowl. I wish I could get a close up picture of them but they were too far away.
You know the old saying, "stop and smell the roses"? Well, we stop and snap a picture. It is so interesting how the trails change from week to week.
After our lunch break Judy and I returned to check more trails. Just when we thought we weren't going to see any wildlife ..... we see buffalo! These are the ones that have been running loose for a week. The wildlife officer and the owner had herd of them cornered in this area. They were hoping to get them to cross a bridge but I don't think they were successful.
Oh well, at least we got some cool photos.
Today, Judy, John and I were invited to have fajitas with fellow full timer RVers Janice and David. Their way of thanking us for volunteering, much appreciated. They are staying in the area and toured the refuge today. We really enjoyed meeting them and sharing travel stories. Thanks Janice and David for the hospitality and a delicious meal. We wish them safe travels and hope to see them again down the road.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
