Alligators, Driftwood and Loretta



Kayaking at 5 Rivers in the Alabama Delta today was very interesting. The weather was nice, the sky was blue and you could actually smell Spring in the air. I sat a few times and just listened to the wind blow through the cat tails and sea oats. It was a much needed "nature fix" for me. As I paddled along I enjoyed watching many interesting critters either feeding or sunning themselves along the shore but the most interesting one of all was Loretta, a cross eyed opossum wearing a St. Patrick's day outfit. The day ended with a picnic, a trip to Bass Pro Shop and a banana Moon Pie. Only in the South!








Help me.....I'm drowning.....

Sea Oats in the breeze.

This is a close as I wanted to get.


I love Driftwood


Loretta



Told you she was crossed eyed


A picture is worth a thousand words...Now I have seen everything!

Oh my gosh Inka, only you could find such a thing as Loretta! It's weird enough that someone has an opossum as a pet, but dressed for St. Patrick's Day and crossed to boot!? Good thing you got pictures because we would have thought you were imbibing a bit too much in the wine on your trip and seeing creatures only you could see! This made my day! Love you girl!!
