Happy Thankful Thursday!

Happy Thankful Thursday!

North Point State Park is a great park for seeing all kinds of birds, frogs, turtles and even snakes. The trail goes through a wooded area and ends on the Chesapeake Bay in Baltimore County, Maryland. 

The Black Marsh trail is my favorite trail to take in the North Point State Park. 

"Our souls need time to think, dream and reflect."

There is a great wetlands area and habitat for the Osprey, Little Blue Herons, Great Blue Herons and even the Bald Eagle. Pretty sky reflections on the water. 

The Bull frogs were pretty loud and did not seem shy. 

There were two Osprey nest and we saw at least 4 Ospreys from the trail. 

"Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things toward you."

We saw some pretty Mimosa tree blooms along the Black Marsh trail. I am thankful for flowers, they are happy things. 

"Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience."

 Juvenile Tree Swallow being fed by the adult. 

I could hear snakes moving into the plants along the trail as we walked, this was the only snake I saw out in the open. I am assuming it is a Black Rat Snake. 

"My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather."

It was a nice day for a walk, this is a pretty view of the Chesapeake Bay and a beautiful sky. 

Be honest, be nice, be a flower not a weed. 

I am thankful for my son, he is handy dandy. He put wainscoting in our bathroom, it is looks great.
am thankful for all your visits and comments.
