Sam Parr State Park

Yesterday was a rainy dreary day. Daughter and #3 Grandson came down for a visit. 

We decided to brave the weather and head off to a nearby State Park. The rain wasn't heavy so we were able to get out of the car occasionally.

#3 Grandson walked through a spider web and expressed concern the spider might have gotten into his shirt. It didn't.

We smelled the aroma of honeysuckle and searched until we found it. We reminisced about living near Bethpage, TN. We used to walk down an old road to an abandoned fire tower. Along the way we passed by a fence full of honeysuckle on both sides of the road. No matter where I am, when I smell honeysuckle, this memory comes to mind.

We saw a wild turkey, but he had his feet in high gear and disappeared into the woods before I could get a shot. We settled for this Eastern Phoebe on a branch hanging out over the water. 

We also saw some wildflowers. Purple...

...and yellow.

All in all it was a good day, even if I didn't get a picture of the cardinal that kept teasing us with his prescence.
