Not exactly Victoria's Secret kind of undies....
See the folded underwear... kinda hard to tell, but they're pink. See the shirt on the right? It's orange. It's new... bought it at Cabela's last week. Didn't read the washing instruction tag (it's sewn in the side seam if you want to know... ). Did laundry this morning. I quit separating the whites, colored, plaids, polka-dot stuff years ago. I'm doing good to wash grungy jeans and greasy shirts in a separate load. So... after the damage was done and I got it all folded I did read the washing tag in the shirt... "wash separately before wearing". My Mom always said to wear clean underwear with no safety pins... just in case we were in accident. I'll bet a lot of your mothers said that, too.... she didn't say anything about pink.
Our underwear isn't all that's coming up rosy...
Look at the sunrise this morning.
My Mom would have said "Sailors Take Warning"... (rain's coming), but it's in the 90's this afternoon and the only moisture is running off everyone's bodies as it's one hot, sweaty day. I don't know how those guys are working up there on that roof.
Aroostook NWR, up in Maine housed the nuclear bombs during the Cold War. The bunkers there are a main attraction. Here, at Eastern Shore of Virginia NWR, the bunker is very different. It's from World War II... and the gun and shell are on display. There are plans to have better signage and interpretive plaques in the future, but I'm guessing that funds are as big an issue here as with most Federal agencies.
I have been enjoying my free time this week. Once the rains quit I've walked most of the trails and often seen white-tail deer and their (still spotted) fawns. We are located on the peninsula jutting down from Delaware, across from Annapolis and along the Chesapeake Bay.
I took this photo from the top of the tower that overlooks the bay. We're only a mile or so from that long, long bridge that spans the waters between the peninsula and Norfolk, VA. I can hear the traffic when I'm walking along the trails.
Trumpet Creeper grows wild here....
I don't know if it's native or invasive, but it's wild and is all over the place.
But hummingbirds like it, so I guess that's okay.
I'm not sure how much longer we'll be here... I can almost see the gears in Bill's head calculating how many more days he can work and how long we need to drive to Texas...
Tomorrow I think I'll drive up to the nearby State Park... there's several geocaches hidden there, and we all know I can't resist that challenge.
That's All For Today!
