Sky Watch Friday!

Whalon Lake

.

Whalon Lake became open to the public this month. It is one of those things that might remain unknown unless someone points it out to you. Fortunately, it was pointed out quite nicely. There were all kinds of things to do at the grand opening. We missed most of it, due to other obligations that day, but when we arrived, we watched a reptile show and browsed through various booths, collecting information and playing free games.

.

One booth had a host who made sure each child received a promotional frisbee prize. Everybody who played became a winner. I like that!!

.

We scooted out of there at about 3PM; just in time to miss a torrential downpour. Sheesh, it must have been rough on the folks who had to put stuff away and take all those tents down.

I love reptile shows. Don't know why. Hey, did I ever tell you I've worn a real live boa constrictor around my neck? HUGE real live boa constrictor.

(Oh, and that was guacamole dip you saw. Personally, I find food kind of romantic. :)

I want to burp an alligator! (Preferably not from the inside!) Great Sky Watch photo, blue sky and bluer water always make me happy.

I just tripped through some of your back posts. Has the dog lost his enthusiasm for chasing skunks?

Shammickite said...

oooo is that a real live alligator? What a handsome fellow, and such nice sharp teeth....

Raven said...
