Dave here *- I decided to head out to Kumbali today and see what there was to see and drop off some seeds at the permaculture center. This post will have a lot of pictures on it because a picture is worth a thousand words. When I arrived at Kumbali, I noticed a lot of color in the trees. The last time I saw this much color was when they were having the quilt show a few months back. To my surprise one of the local shops was hanging their batiks to be sold. I am told that they do this every Sunday.
After looking to see where there was to see. I headed down the path for a walk. If Shannon is reading this she will know what path it is as we have been there together before. I was met with a surprise and horror.
The surprise was a colony of ants making their way from one side of the path to the other. It was a sight to see. If you look closely at the picture you will notice that the ants have made a tunnel in which to transport their eggs from one location to the other. It was really cool.
The horror was the sight of the fields all burnt. I was hoping to say for a few hours but the smell of the freshly burnt areas was killing me. I walk through the burnt area hoping to see some small homles critter but only came a cross a stump that was still smoldering. It was obvious that the fire had just finished.
I was all equipped to sit around and get some good bird pictures, but I was only able to get one. I thought it came out very well. I am posting the one of it flying for Colin. It was a lucky shot as most of my flying picture are.
My trip ended back at the batiks to pick up a little surprise for Shannon. I think she will really like what I got her.
*note - Shannon Requires me to tell everyone that it is me posting so people will not think that it is her.
