Welcome to that one special day each month where Nature Friday and Final Friday Fiction hosted by YAM Aunty fall on the same Friday!!
Please visit YAM Aunty HERE to read more stories!
Today, my adventure story has excerpts from a book Mama got herself for Christmas called
Line 8-Along the beach
Line 12-likely to be lost
Line 16-back along
When I left you last week
I was thinking of someplace else we might see some nature on a rainy day! I told Mama to head south along the beach road towards the marsh...
We passed these two fellas as we drove through the entrance to the park. I asked Mama to pull over so I could ask them for a good place to park and maybe look at some nature!
This guy told me there was a pull out just down the road a ways where we might be able to see a birdy or two. He said it just ahead so we weren't likely to be lost.
His directions were spot on and a few minutes later Mama pulled in and parked the car.
It was still raining and I wasn't sure we would see anything.
Boy was I wrong!
I sat in the front seat, on Mama's lap so we could look out the window. There, in the middle of the pond, was an American Coot!! You won't believe what happened next!
Mama made a short video to show you....
You can watch it HERE on YouTube too!
I couldn't believe the Coot disappeared just like THAT!!
I didn't know WHAT could have happened to him!!
Well, until he popped up a few minutes later!
"No need to make all that ruckus Mr. Arty, I was looking for a good place bring my sweetie for lunch!"
...and with that, he and his sweetie swam back along the same route to find his underwater cafe! Coots are fun to watch, but isn't it a little weird to bring your gal to a restaurant under water???
I told Mama we had enough adventure and coots for one day and it was time to head home!
Where I wrapped up in the towel Mabel gave me and daydreamed about taking her to an above ground sidewalk cafe for bone broth and bacon scones!
Show us your nature! It can be a picture of your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a walkie! Any kind of nature picture will do(does not have to include a pet)!
