We have our first Strawberry's of the year! Not from my GEORGIA GARDENS but rather a shipment from nearby Florida. They are sweet, juicy and oh so yummy!
Sunday was a beautiful day to be out into the great outdoors! Our area is finally seeing some good rain falls and enough to make for a raging Savannah river flowing over the dam.
This is something we have never seen on our Canal Walk before. Police officers! They were called to assist a group of guys that had gotten a bit too close to the dam while in their boat. They went over the dam and were flushed downstream in the cold waters. We arrived just as the guys were getting out of the water along the bank. They were shaken up a bit but seemed OK otherwise. An ambulance was on the way to make sure though. People, BE AWARE OF RAGING WATERS after a lot of rain fall...
On a happy note, our lake is rising! 5 feet in the past month which is wonderful for us boating lovers. We have 10 feet to go for a full pool so this is just a start but a good start!
The Saint recently had eye surgery to correct his vision. I was so glad as he spotted this in the water when all eyes were on the dam itself.
A River Otter fishing in the Savannah!
It looked so much like a seal don't ya think?
Otter are one of my favorites at a Zoo but to see one in the outdoors in the wild was just awesome! The Saint had to drag me away....
Trees were showing blossoms along the walk. Cherry maybe?
My many walks along this canal and I have never spotted this plaque until now.
We spotted wild Trillium in the woods.
A single leaf type of Trillium as well.
Tina, knowing how you enjoy the show Survivor, I knew you would get a kick out of this Cache we found! Called "The Tribe has Spoken" Hint: was Tree mail...
The Log to be signed was a water proof scroll! How cool is that? The info said this cache was placed by Jeff Probst but I am not too sure about that as I think someone was having a bit of fun. We enjoyed this find just the same. We had a wonderful time along the RAGING WATERS, In the Garden... Words and Photos Property of In the Garden Blog Team, In the Garden
