Well, after a couple cups of coffee this morning, I hit the ground running. We went out to Camp 6 Lake and my husband fished and I kayaked. When we got home, we had lunch, I showered up and then I went to visit my neighbors for awhile. When I got back, we went out to Seidel Lake and I kayaked while my husband fished. We made a couple stops to visit family on the way home, and after supper, I went for a walk and found 5 more Monarch caterpillars. I now have 7 caterpillars. One of the caterpillars that I found the other day has already made it’s chrysalis this morning and I’ll take pics tomorrow and post them. The following pics were taken throughout the day.
I forgot to mention that as I was taking my walk I startled a mama bunny who was nursing her 4 babies. I didn’t mean to scare them, and the mama ran off as well as one of the babies.
I was told about this old homestead by a friend of mine. It’s on her land and she knows how much I love old buildings, so she told me where it was and how to get to it. I never would have found it unless I knew about it, because you can’t see it from the highway. Another friend told me that she thinks the log structure is a horse barn, given the width of the doors. We had an interesting walk around the area. We also found 3 deer carcasses and 1 cow carcass that we figure were left by wolves. It just makes sense considering the fact that wolves are being spotted more and more often in this area. This homestead isn’t very far from my house, maybe 2 miles or less, as the crows flies.
