All God's Creatures

A trip to the Farm was badly needed by me! So, today we drove up there to fish with my new rod and reel (by the way, all the fish are very safe---not a single bite but it was fun) and to ride bikes on the country roads. The day was gorgeous and the temperature just right---in the low 70's. First we fished, then ate lunch, and later rode our bikes for about 4 miles. Even though we didn't catch any fish, we enjoyed just walking around the pond. Apparently, so did the geese. They spent a long time bathing and fluffing their feathers on the edge of the pond while we were down there fishing.

As I walked around the pond, I saw a dragon fly sitting on top of a stick. This isn't very interesting to many people, but I love nature and thought it would be interesting to see if I could take a close-up of a dragon fly.
After fishing for a while, I walked back to the barn where I found Big Red lying down full and content. She had just been fed before we went to the pond. Obviously, she was a happy cow.

I'll post pictures of our bike ride later. It was a fun ride to an old abandoned house that holds many dear memories for me.
