Well it's Thursday again, the day where Tommy and I spend the day together. Today we took another bike ride to Mt. Dora and walked around. This above college is of a walking path we found. It looked real fun until we came to the part that was closed off due to reconstruction of the dock, so we had to turn around. On the way back we walked on the trail instead of the dock. Tommy found this huge tree that was hollowed out on the bottom, but the top was very much still alive. It was very very hot today. The heat index was over 100 degrees.
I just love animals. A trait I picked up from my mother. These 2 ducks were in the water and came running over to us thinking we had something to feed them. When they realized that we didn't have anything, they walked away and decided to groom themselves. The gray bird is called a blue herrin. The black birds are all vultures. They have to be the ugliest birds that exist, but I was very much intrigued by them. They started to fly above us and land in the trees, so we thought we best be on our way, before they think we are their lunch.
These squirrels were so cute, I would make a noise and they would turn and look at me. At one point I thought one would crawl up my leg. Tommy kept shaking his head, like I was nuts or something. The middle photo is my favorite of the day. It looks so beautiful, but was sooooo hot.
After lunch we thought we would walk around the town for a little bit. Well that was short lived. Did I tell you how hot it was? We walked about 3 blocks, but were too hot. These are some of the store signs we saw along the way. In order to really enjoy this quaint little town, it has to be cooler out.

How hot was your walk today?
Hope it was cooler than ours.

It looks like you guys are having so much fun! I love the hollow tree! That's a really cool picture!
Your bird pictures are fantastic! I love the one of all the vultures. But they are all great! The Blue Heron is so pretty I would frame that one!
Mister Squirrel looks pretty friendly but since Fred all I can think of when I see squirrel is mange:(
Love your sign collage. I love Mt Dora. I'm going to have to go one of these days:)

Looks like we had the same feelings about our walks yesterday--HOT! I think mine was my least favorite thus far!!

Your pictures are fabulous though. I love the white ducks. They always pick up the light perfectly, don't they?!

I'm jealous that Tommy crawled into the hollow tree for you...I can never get Jenny to do that! ;)
