The gulf rain has been showering the midwest for the past several days. We love rain! Hubby loves sitting on the porch listening to it hit the awning. He even listens to youtube videos of rain, thunder, and outdoor creatures. But, after 3 full days of rain, we were a bit in need of some outdoor time. In between showers hubs suggested we get out and go to a little rustic driving range so he could hit golf balls and practice a few techniques. Getting out is always an excuse for me to bring my camera. At a moments notice, whatever lens is on the camera will do. Today it was the 60mm.
Once out of the car and walking toward the driving range, we were welcomed by this sweet little cat. It rubbed around both my black pant legs, over and over. It rubbed against the bench, and gave hubs all its attention.
Shortly after this feline welcoming, along came a big brown hen….strutting through the grass, showing off her beautiful brown feathers. She even posed a few times for me. Then I heard a rooster crowing, and some ducks quacking, so I headed over to another area to find them. The hen followed along behind me. It felt like “country in the city” because we never left the city, yet we found quiet and farm animals enjoying freedom in their space.
Tomorrow we’re off to the State Fair for the morning! Exciting! Summer has marched on….far too quickly. August is half over, and the sense of Autumn is in the air.
