I received a shipment of ear wires from Bali, Indonesia this week so my inventory is replenished.
Bali wires have always been a favorite of mine for their quality and style. Someday I would love to be making my own ear wires for resale!!!Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary
**WARNING** There is a snake in this post!
Jim and I took a ride over to the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. This space is over 2,000 acres of reservation for nature.
Some of the trails are boardwalks through a swampy environment.Of course I almost fell a few times!
We saw a muddy frog.
As well as a frog who likes to keep clean.
Lots of snakes (the harmless kind).
The deer were not too afraid of us since they feel safe in this sanctuary.
There were happy mallard ducks.
Lots of birds. I envy those of you who can photograph birds. That is no easy task!
Including Woody Woodpecker! Jim spotted this little guy this from a distance. He is super far away so the picture is a bit fuzzy.
I have always enjoyed looking up at majestic trees against a blue sky.There were many twisted tree formations.
The beavers are hard at work on this land. They even chopped this tree down with their teeth!
The pictures do not due the nature justice. Everything was worthy of gazing at.
I can see that the photos do not do justice since I cannot figure out what I was focused on in a bunch of the pictures! It caught my eye in real life. If I could have had a professional photographer by my side I could have had them capture my fascination!
This walk was perfect. Nature therapy is one of the best forms of relaxation…..right up there with laughter!!!
Jim enjoyed it so much that he brought his son there afterwards and they discovered much more than we did since the place is so vast. Apparently there is a grotto there (not like the Playboy mansion one). They brought bird seed and the birds actually ate out of their hands!Thank you for stopping by! Have a beautiful week! ~Val
