Grandgirls! Stone Mountain Camp! 2.5.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:57 pm  

Milder temperatures.

Wreck on the way to pick up the girls.


On my way to Niger, W. Africa fourteen years ago today.

Love my girls!

Spent some time near the bird feeders today.

Teaching them the basic feeder birds we see: Carolina wren, Tufted Titmouse, S. Carolina Chicadee, House Sparrow, Red Bellied Woodpecker, and Downy Woodpecker. There are another five species or more that I see regularly including Crows, Sharp Shinned Hawks, Cardinals, Blue Jay, Towhee, Brown Thrasher, and Mourning Doves. Seasonally, I also see Red Throated Hummingbirds and Goldfinch.

We went up to our “Camp Site” on Stone Mountain today. It was beautiful.

We had fun with stacking rocks.

I’m always impressed by the beauty of nature there. Many interesting water patterns.

I love shooting with reflected light. The overcast sky is perfect for it.

We made it to our camp site.

I like lichen. Moss is a must.

The sky cleared off for about an hour or so.

I like for them to develop a sense of balance. We often walk on logs.

The clouds were so beautiful. I was struck by the similarity of the streaking in the clouds and on the rocks.

Everly fell asleep in the back seat.

Penelope and I watched Aladdin together. Jesse got Everly out of the car and brought her down to us for the last twenty minutes or so. Then I took them to the other grandparents.

Paid bills.
