A Small Escape

Yesterday we finally had a little break from all the oppressive heat and humidity. ~ There was little humidity, but temps were a respectable 29c/86f though still quite hot in the sun. I had been housebound long enough because of COPD, so off we went to the park. (clickable thumbnails)


A few wild flowers


Can't have flowers without a butterfly.

A different shot of the river

And of course Freddy Frog has to have a show.

Yours truly, for after all the trip out is for our benefit.

Hi Eric
Sorry it took me so long to return your most welcome visit!
Been kind of busy!
Our son headed off to college on Sat, and we had to bring stuff to him on Monday!
We sure do miss him.

As always I enjoy your posts, and especially this one!
Beautiful pictures!
They made me smile!
Thanks my friend!
Take good care, and please stay well!

Margie
P.S I'll be heading up to Nova Scotia next Thursday, and be there till Sept 6th.
I'm really looking forward to my trip!

Margie! It is so good to see you again. Isn't that always the way ~ They go one day and there is a reason to visit almost right away! LOL
I am sure you will miss him for a little while, but I'm guessing he will be home no later than Xmas. :)

So you are finally off to Nova Scotia, well you do get around I can say that. That's another trip that I am sure you have looked forwad to for some time now, I'm sure you will enjoy your stay there.

Glad as always to see you and that you enjoy my posts/pictures. I do try to stay as healthy as is possible.

You too take care and not too much Lobster! :)

Eric, this post was just what I needed yesterday. We were not having a break in our weather!- although we do have one today and they're promising it will keep up for the weekend, so I'm not complaining!
I've added your beautiful photographs to my Five For Friday -Favorite Posts
