We took a group of twelve children to fish last night at a farmer's pond nearby; most of them caught a fish. I only caught a nibble with the fishing rod and reel but I caught a lot of pictures with my trusty little camera.

The sun went down slowly.
The wind kept the gnats away.
Delighted children squealed.
Nobody got hurt, or mad, or lost, or exposed to poison ivy. Nobody got sick on the hot dogs.
Thank goodness it was an uneventful evening!

Out on the Country Roads

You never know what you might find at the end of a country road. We pulled off the main highway so I could take some pictures of the clouds and suddenly, just over a hill, we found this barn almost swaying in the wind. The farmer was kind enough to see us taking pictures and opened the gate for us to get closer. He said "sure, go ahead and take some pictures before it falls down." From the looks of it, I suspect that day is coming soon.

The sun was really bright so I stood in the shade for this second shot. Notice the sunbeams at the corner of the barn.

April Skies

I took these pictures within a twenty-four hour period Friday to Saturday evening. I don't think I'll ever get tired of looking at the sky.
