An Afternoon Picnic at Oak Mountain State Park, Alabama, US
Danny and I have enjoyed the weekend and on Saturday took a picnic out to beautiful Oak Mountain State Park. Pelham, Alabama.
Welcome to some of the photo's we took on this beautiful day.
Here are just some of the things you can do;
"The Oaks" Golf Course
Horseback Riding & Trails
Oak Mountain BMX
Mountain Bike Trails
Oak Mountain Playgrounds
Oak Mountain Boarding Stables
Oak Mountain Community Archery Park
I think this is the next best thing for them as their cages are built within the forest ..so they are out in the wild but are kept safe within the cages ...this photo Danny took shows a baby Barn Owl sleeping whilst holding tight on to it's dinner, a white rat.
There are two birds in each cage ...an adult Barn Owl was with this baby one.
I often see Turkey Vultures in the road that we live on but I have never seen an Albino one.
I guess that is why this one is in captivity as it would not survive in the wild because of it's color.
We decided to have our little picnic by one of the lakes.
We didn't have a fancy picnic.
Just a ham on the bone sandwich with cheese and spinach.
And some lovely Cantaloupe Melon.
All washed down with chilled homemade iced tea.
Whilst we sat there at the picnic table we watched this lovely Western Kingbird catching bugs.
A few canoeists came along in the very shallow water of the lake.
The mud in the foreground was hard and bone dry.
Discarded like weary dusty garments.
Dreaming of better days;
Daring to hope for rain.
We have found THIS in all of it's beauty.
I hope that you are managing to enjoy the beauty of the cooler days.
Where ever you are.
Happy Autumn/Fall time everyone.
