Happy Monday


Happy Monday, I hope all is well in your part of the world. Have a great day and new week!


During our road trip, I was happy to meet blogger Mary in Kentucky. This is the link to  Mary's blog. She is sweet person,  We met at a Cracker Barrel restaurant off of Rt 71 on our way to Mammoth Caves National Park in Kentucky. Thanks again to Mary for the nice lunch, I am so glad we could meet.

On 5/4 we made an early morning stop before leaving Ohio. Nearby was the Clear Creek Covered Bridge and the Clear Creek Metro Park in Rockbridge Ohio.



Clear Creek Metro Park


This chicken was in the park near Lake Ramona.

"Clean water is such a treasure that we take for granted in America."  Hannah Teter


This was a birdy area, saw the American Redstarts, Common Yellowthroat Warbler, Catbird, Bluebirds and Chipping Sparrows.



Some of the birds we saw were the male and female American Redstarts, Common Yellowthroat Warbler and Catbird. I am sorry the photos are not the best, they moved quickly and were camera shy.




We took the Hemlock Trail for a little distance, there were many wildflowers, a little creek and the hemlock trees.

 I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.


Thanks to the hosting team of Our World Tuesday!


I hope to see you there. Thanks to the host today. Enjoy your day and new week ahead.

  2. Makes me wonder . . .
    How many blogger “meet ups” have you had through the years?
    I am sure Mary was happy for the “meet up!”

    Great pictures . . .

  5. The Clear Creek Covered Bridge is so beautiful! You never see something like that in Europa. That chicken was not the "wife" of a Grouse? LOL

  7. May I point out, Eileen, with great respect I may add, that the bird is a Common Yellowthroat not a Common Yellowthroated Warbler.

  9. Hello,
    thanks for the comments: Marco, Franciso Manuel, Lynne, Tom, Chica, Merle Ella, Luisella and Dimi.

    Thanks David, I made the correction for the Yellowthroat. I knew just a typo.

  10. Loved seeing the covered bridge...and that's a really tall one too! Thanks for the quote about water. We had a flood last week, with water main damage, which meant boiling water for 5 days and it's finally been lifted. I'm very grateful for clean water coming out of the tap again!

  46. I am always drawn in by photos of rivers...they speak to my heart. My father wrote two books about the rivers of British Columbia, where I lived for most of my life.
    Like my friend Penelope Puddle, I enjoyed seeing the chicken out for a stroll!
