SKETCHBOOK: "Heron Falls"

My wife and I went out today to sketch and shoot photos and enjoy the gorgeous weather at the end of the 4th of July weekend. To get to this little waterfall near a lake in Olathe, KS, you have to walk across a dam, then trek back into the woods. While we sat there, a heron flew over us and landed at the far end of the falls (you can see him in my sketch).

Cat got some photos of "the hunter" and "the drawer".
Soon after this photo was taken, I discovered that we were sitting under a "spider highway" that stretched across the trees overhead. When a big spider was seen crawling on my leg, Cat said, "I'm out of here!"...I was not far behind her. Except for the arachnids...it was a very fun day!

Hey, now I feel all weird. I posted a comment and then tried to add to it. When I couldn't add to it I deleted it thinking I could just post another comment. Now there's that weird and uncomfortable 'comment deleted by author' message there that makes me feel like I did something wrong HA!

Anyhow, just wanted to say love the Sailboats! Too bad a couple were lost to fire.
Also was curious if you tore your dress or mussed your hair running from the itsy bitsy spiders heh. Sorry, you know I can't pass up being a dork.

Very amusing, sir. I did manage to finish my "curds and whey" before I ran off like Jerry Lewis. And since you asked...my dress was fine, thanks...I have no hair to speak of.
