Urban Wildlife

This evening we went to the Peanut Farm for supper. It was another beautiful day so we wanted to take advantage of the deck outside. We sat right next to the creek.
We were there until 1015 pm, & the sun was still quite high in the sky. It's easy to lose track of the time when it's light so late. As we sat, we saw what looked like a piece of brown wood float past. A second look , & we realized it was a beaver.
He stopped & climbed out of the water on the opposite bank. Note the metal flashing around the tree trunk.

I love Alaska.

Hello Deb, Happy Spring from Michigan. Oh, how I love looking at all your lovely Alaskan photos, your beaver photos are fantastic. Love them.

Your machine quilting is truly gorgeous. I will have to create a quilt just for you to machine quilt for me. VBG

I also love the wood design of your deck. It is very unique, did you design it???

Thanks for sharing all those lovely Alaskan photos, I truly enjoy looking at them all. Hugs Judy

Hi Deb, so glad you are getting some weather other than snow!
I love seeing what you see on your walks, different from the things I see but in many ways similar.
I like that big, colourful quilt you have in your machine. Hope it goes well.
Enjoy your warmer months.

Thanks for the great photos. I visited Alaska many years ago, and your photos brought back some memories. I visited during the summer, and the long daylight hours were very disorienting, but somehow I didn't feel sleep deprived.
