We took the puppies (now dogs since they are a year old) to a camp house. It was a beautiful fall day and we wanted to get out and enjoy the fall foliage. The next two images are from our backyard and knew it would be even more spectacular in other places.
This was the first time they had been to the camp house and like any curious child they had to check everything out.
Why are you telling us to get down off this stuff?
With faces like that how could I refuse them.
Then they decided to take a nap until dad called them.
Then they were off. Exploring all sorts of neat places.
but quickly decided I was booring.
Patton decided he wanted to check out the flora around the place. To be honest I couldn't blame him it was pretty. I was surprised to see some of this blooming where it was. That is usually lake bottom but the lake was way down on this day.
This was a real good image showing just how low the lake was. Normally the water is to the bottom black line on these cypress trees.
Just look at how pretty the day was. We don't get days like this very often. It made me feel like it was the perfect way to end the Thanksgiving Holidays and be thankful for all that we have.
We went out onto the dock and enjoyed the view from it. When ever I see the Spanish Moss I always know I'm in the south.
I think they had a great time. I know I did if they didn't.

After seeing that we decided to go and see the rest of the tree.
At first you don't think it was that bad but then when you saw huge sections one after another hollowed out, you couldn't help but be impressed with how powerful these bees must have been. We also wondered how long were they in that tree.
|Bees hollow out a tree|
There was still some honey comb and also a few bees flying around this section so I didn't get too close to it.
I could imagine some other animal making this hollowed out tree into a home. Then I could imagine if this would have been buried in the ground and filled in with different material what an amazing fossil/ rock this would be.
