The first thing we saw on the path was a Blue Heron fishing for dinner.
We continued on, under this little shelter.
Does this look like a Dragon to you?
This is where things started to go wrong. This part of the path was right on the river, which was very exposed.
Small flying bugs were swarming everywhere! We got bitten within an inch of our lives! Here is my arm, and Phil's is just as bad. I don't know what they were, so I call them River Gnats.
Fleeing the biting bugs, Phil turned my chair around and we headed back to the car. But a slow train was coming on the tracks over the shelter, it was deafening! The tracks were vibrating and it looked like the entire train would come crashing down. So there we stayed till the train passed...getting bitten the whole time!
Once we had driven away, we went up on a hill to snap the sunset, while we madly scratched and scratched.
Later tonight, we were sitting on the couch scratching and we heard a loud buzz, like a weed eater. A huge hornet had gotten in the house!!! But that's another story...
“God said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Take your staff and strike the dust. The dust will turn into gnats all over Egypt.’”
