I have always longed to visit
It's on the bucket list each Spring - Summer but we have never been.
The hubs was not as enthusiastic about visiting as I was
but he always goes along with anything I want to do.
Expected high temperatures on Saturday were to be in the 70's, that would be perfect.
We did some research, made the drive, only 45 minutes...so far, so good.
We arrived at the grounds and they directed us to park in the parking lot furthest from the
even though I have a handi-capped placard.
Once we realized that, I got out of the car and told the attendant I would be in need of a scooter,
he looked to be about 10 years old and I got no where with him.
I happened to glance at the car thermometer that gives the outside temperature
and it read 92 degrees.
I got a feeling...you know that feeling, get back in the car and go home.
But oh no, not me, I'm a trooper and I pushed on.
Next, on the way to the visitors center, we passed one of their cool sculptures,
I was tired, ALREADY...there was shade...
so I thought it would be a good spot to stop and snap a picture.
I posed for this picture and a bird shit all over me.
If you are wondering if I left, I didn't, now I was more determined than ever
that we were going to have a nice day.
The hubs posed, no bird poop for him...
and the rest of the day went something like that.
I do have a ton of pictures...
tomorrow, no story, just pictures...I do think you will enjoy them!!
I am adding a little p.s. today after reading some of your comments.
I have heard the theory about bird poop bringing good luck.
It wasn't just the blessing from above,
it was the sum of all things that made me think staying here was not such a good idea.
