Lettuce Lake Park, 5-24-09

Today was a beautiful day at the park. We walked along the boardwalk and saw some familiar critters. There were still a lot of lovebugs, a blue tailed skink, bees, wasps, snakebirds, etc. This week we also saw a water water moccasin.

Here are the photos of the river:

Weather Report for Last Week

Yes, I know I am a little late. Sorry about that! OK. Last week we had almost 6 inches of rain. Finally the rainy season is upon us. We really needed the rain. The river was even higher when we went to the park Sunday, so I think that the rain is helping.
