Fishin',Floatin' and Flyin'.

On Memorial Day weekend, we took a 4 wheel trip to the Pigg River.

Caine loved sitting in the chair, but the current was a tad strong for his size, so he sat and sipped his juice and then took a turn at fishing. After losing his worm,twice, I was again re-worming the hook when he said,"Just put a fish on it Grandma." Can't argue with that logic.

On Monday, the neighbors and I floated the Pigg. Bob had to work, but his knees don't do well in a kayak nor a canoe for a 6 hour float. We had my red kayak, Clays green one, Melissa's flat bottom boat and my canoe. It was a good float for Melissa,Troy and Samantha;Lauralee and her guy;Sissy and Burger and me.
The hummingbirds are back big-time! I think they have brought all their offspring for years back! I can't keep up with the sugar water,once again.I tried to capture some of them this morning while having coffee. Here's the results:

The noise from so many birds is incredible.Buzzing and screeching. It is fascinating.
The still pictures don't do them justice, but you get the idea by all the blurred blobs around the feeders. (Of course you know if you click on the picture it will come up full screen size...)
Kind of like watching an aquarium, the blood pressure just slows.

Country is good.

Love the pictures of Caine and the hummingbirds. Right now I have 5 hummers and only 1 feeder. Guess I better hang another one out.
