Have a wonderful weekend.

Weekly Challenge: Fresh

There’s nothing like fresh ice cream, made right before your eyes.

Otter or Beaver

We have both river otters and beavers in the rivers here.  I see them swimming quite often but I’m never sure if I’m seeing a beaver or an otter.  I usually just see the top of its head when its swimming.

Which is it?

Fire and Rescue

On one of my walks this week, I came across the Bend Fire and Rescue training in the rapids along the river.  The water is fast and cold and these people have to be in great shape to be able to swim against the water in these conditions. They will be putting their training to good use this summer when the water enthusiasts take to the rivers again this summer.
