Happy Monday! ~ 270
Some more images taken at Eagle Point Park on Saturday. There were three barges that locked through while we were at the park. That’s not many considering how long we were there. The comment most often heard was, “It doesn’t seem very efficient when you have a barge wasting all that fuel waiting for 30 plus minutes waiting to lock through.” It must be cost-effective though or they would abandon the process.
I like this image of the fire in the barbecue pit. Fire is a fascinating subject to photograph. I have a friend who is on the fire department in Maquoketa and he has said that he will call me the next time they burn down a structure for practice. I would enjoy capturing that event.
We had a great time at the park. Yes I did shoot lots of images of the Grand Kids and I’ll show them as the week unfolds.
Finally as we were leaving the park Saturday evening Jeanne and I both saw the soft light on part of the dam from the setting sun. I had to stop and grab some images of it.
I spent three hours yesterday cutting, trimming, and sweeping the grass. Just about 30 minutes before the heavens opened up with an afternoon long rain. I love it when a plan comes together.
I also had to repair two of the feeders. The first job was on the newest feeder purchased last week. I noticed that not one bird had eaten there. I moved it to another location, changed the food and still no one was eating. Then I discovered it was for thistle only. Well I already had two feeders with thistle so to the workshop and I made some modifications to it. The birds drained all the feed by the end of the day. 🙂
Then I had a hanger gave out on one of the feeders so I had to repair and reinforce that. There were four birds on it when last I looked.
On my bird feeder project, (click on the link to the right side of this blog) my photo last night was of seven birds on one feeder. The birds are wet because it is raining but that didn’t detour them from getting their fill.
That’s it for today. Hope you enjoy your Monday (it’s here all day.) Thanks as always for stopping by the blog and be careful.
