after the rain
a short stroll through the woods is a creek. during the summer months it is usually bone dry, but after a recent rainfall there were some nice pools to explore. it's a pretty little stream with trees & ferns crowding its banks. we like to go there to throw rocks, collect nuts that have fallen from above and play in the water. yesterday was the perfect day for a creek visit. we carried a walking stick with a bell attached, you know, so the bear would hear us and stay away. but most importantly, our behemoth ginger striped tabby, loki, guarded us the entire time.
