It’s a sign of wisdom that seeds don’t squander their energy all at once, instead calmly waiting until the time is right. ~ Midas Dekkers’ The Way of All Flesh’ in ‘Romance of Ruins’ “

Hubby and I had the opportunity to visit with our kids and grandkids for the Independence holiday.
We had a fantastic time!
One of my favorite things we did was to visit the Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve. I found it to be a wonderful place when one is in need of serenity and a gentle hike.
The Mima Mounds are a mystery. There are many theories, but its formation remains unknown.
There are prairie flowers, lichen, butterflies and birds to enjoy. Spring would be a great time to see wildflowers in bloom, but anytime is lovely for a peaceful stroll.
A harbor seal led our dinner cruise. What fun to follow him (or was it a her) for the beginning of our 3-1/2 hour cruise around the harbor!
I highly recommend this cruise! Marty is the former harbor master and Marion is a master gardener, chef, author and photographer. They offer wonderful hospitality, not only in great-tasting food, but also in wildlife viewing, and entertaining (and knowledgeable stories) aboard their beautiful craft, the Sea Breeze.
The photos were taken by myself, my Hubby, and my daughter.
Enjoy the show!
For those of you who are interested in my trip to Alaska, here is a slideshow of more photos, as promised.
You are looking at my visit to Denali Park. I was blessed with a gorgeous day for the visit!
Hubby and I saw golden eagle, moose, ptarmigan, Dall sheep, bear, caribou, small critters, and fabulous scenery. Nobody creates and designs like the great God above!
