Limpet Rhinoceros Lady

Today is my last day off before I start my new job. I am feeling pretty excited to start working, but happy I have this day off to recover a little since I was extremely sick for no reason yesterday and probably was in bed a good 22 out of the 24 hours. I was able to become conscious enough to move from the bed to the air mattress in the living room for a couple hours, but that was the extent of my days excitement.

Went out and met some of the people Rhet works with on Friday which was fun.

Wednesday Rhet only had to go into work for a couple of hours for some rescue practice,

Settlers Cove

so I went with him and watched and then we decided to drive till the road ended; which was about 15 miles or so. We ended up at a little state park called Settlers Cove. It was the most perfect day. It is suppose to rain 19 days a month here, and cloudy most all the time, but there was barely a cloud in the sky, and the ones that were out, weren’t getting in the way of the sun. We walked around there for awhile, Rhet found the first starfish and the hunt was on after that.

On our way back into town we passed 1 momma black bear with her 2 cubs just sitting on the side of the road! It was crazy! I was able to get a picture or two before they ran off back into the woods as we watched their little silhouettes frolic the hill. Rhet says that both of the babies are year-lings and that it is always awesome when a mother still has two cubs the next year, that they both made it. [Rhet has since seen another momma with babies off of his zip-line course]

With our new apartment being carpeted, Dill is excited to learn she is the fastest thing on earth. And she is also excited to be able to run without having a crash landing into the wall every time she tries to turn the corner.

I am also inserting updated blog post from our drive out here from April 15-22, so if you are interested you will just have to scroll further down to find them and see the pictures!

I have having the hardest time getting these little thumb nails to show up.
