The Birds and Critters of Old City Lake + more

Sometimes, even if it's rainy, you just want to be outside.
After church, we took the long way home yesterday and indulged in some of the local beauty.
We also played a little game of "Wonder Where This Road Goes" on the way home.

Old City Lake and it's beautiful birds lured us first.
Quite a wingspan on this beastie!
On to the quackers:
I'm thinking he's a domestic duck.
Kyler said; "Look Mom! They're drowning themselves!"  :)
Not only are there birds- but big turtles! See them?

This was my favorite. He was a beautiful charcoal grey. Anyone know what he is?
See the chipmunk? A rare thing to catch more than a glimpse of here.

Hints of fall colors!
Look at his little feet paddling!

For some it's bubble baths... for's a place like this! 
My girl.

The falls were a little slow but beautiful!

We stumbled on this place too. I guess you would call it a sand quarry? Doesn't it look cool?!?!
There was a No Trespassing sign so we didn't go any further. The dangers are obvious, but boy did it look super cool!
When we got home, it started ran in the rain!
...and we all lived happily ever after :)

Deu 11:13-14  And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,  That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.

That's the first time we've been and the birds were so pretty and eager to have their pics made :)

It was ALL I could do, to stay out of that quarry! ;-) ...It looked like the moon or something!
