Woodpeckers marks

While on a nature hike, we found this tree that had been used by a woodpecker. I was amazed at the design of the holes as they work to get the insects out of the dead tree.

The Unicorn

The family camp we attend in Petosky, Michigan caters to the 3 and 4 year olds and the 5 and 6 year olds. The 5 and 6 year olds sing a song that goes:
"fives and sixes are the best
the very best kids in camp.
And if you think you can mess with us
we'll show you that you can't, uh -huh!"
and they tell the kids about the unicorn. One of the horse staff, dresses up and rides the unicorn by the kids. It is amazing to see the faces of the kids.....

An organic garden

This is an organic garden in Petosky, Michigan. It is on an acre and they have volunteers come and pick the produce. It was pouring the rain the day we were here but it was a lovely place to visit......
