Welcome to June-uary
For a day that started out with an extremely foggy sunrise...
...yesterday turned into a stunningly sunny and warm day. In fact, the weather is so unseasonably warm that one local station coined the term June-uary for it. Clever!
We took advantage of it for some outdoor recreation. First we went to a local park to feed the ducks...
...and the geese
and then took a stroll down by the river where we watched some band fishermen pull three large fish out. Good Job!
Some river views were too good to let pass without recording them
Now, this was the strangest thing we saw all day...
At this shelter in the park there must have been over a dozen individuals in cobbled together 'medevial' costumes: shields, wooden swords, a lance, a bow carrying arrowl that looked more like plungers, robes, capes, a variety of headdresses, and one guy with a beard down past his waist made out of bright pink yarn! When we first spotted them they were just assembling here but later, as we were leaving the park we spotted them out in the open area of the park having a battle. We laughed till our sides hurt!
On the way back to the car we stopped at the skate park and watched the youngsters doing tricks on razor skooters, skateboards, and bikes. Quite impressive, really.
After a trip to the library we trundled on home and finished the day with a barbeque of hamburgers on the grill.
Yep, it's January!
