Some Visitors We Don't Want

This little guy showed up the other day.

We love visitors, especially the two legged kind, but this guy can stay away. They're cute as babies and our kids had one for a few weeks, but they soon realized it was better off in the wilds. As long as we keep the place clean and free of garbage, they just pass on through.

As  promised yesterday, here are a few up-dated pictures of the loon and train station.  I even found more turtles busy by the side of the road.You may have to click on the pictures to enlarge them.

This snapper was just about finished laying her eggs.

An hour later and she was on the other side laying more eggs. Please drive carefully when in "turtle territory".

Can you see the loon on her nest? We have a great view from the road.

The nest is on this small island and seems well protected from predators. It's wonderful to have a front row seat as they get ready for the eggs to hatch.

In town the old train station has been stripped bare. Next step, I believe, will be to jack her up and build a proper foundation under her.

From time to time I change the header bar at the top of the page. Hope you don't mind.
Time for me to go and cut wood. Thanks for dropping by.
