a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Walking...

Lil stands on the tree trunk covered with poison oak.
I use to bathe here as a young child in summer.
This live creek has water year round.
This is a "dry" creek.
It will go dry if we don't receive enough rain.
See the tiny resident?
It's just a frog, Pat.
Treasures from the rain.

i would love to wade in that creek. of course i would have to be careful not to fall in with my camera. my aunt was so allergic to poison ivy that she swam in a creek like this one and got the rash from the water... aint i just the cheery one.. LOL

Are you immune to poison ivy? Some people are. (I am not one of them...)

Pat said...

I'd probably be okay bathing in that creek as a child, but no way would I do it as an adult. I'd know better! ;) Too many creepy crawly slithery things!

Pretty Lil. She's an Awww indeed. I love the shot of the frog too. For being so small they can often be very loud.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Wow..love the arrowheads. I'd love to find one.

Sandy said...

Nice finds after the rain. I love the creek pictures. Lil must love the water herself.

Lynne said...

You must have quite a collection of Arrowheads . . .

What about that poison oak . . . does it bother you?

Love those arrowheads!

That is just such a peaceful looking place! I would love to sit there and read or write.

Country Gal said...

I could sit down there for hours listening to the water and taking photos ! Lovely post and photos . Thanks for sharing ! Have a good day !

I've read that if you drink goat milk from goats that eat poison ivy, you can develop a natural immunity. But it only lasts as long as you keep drinking the milk. If you stop, you lose the immunity.

I love your rain finds. :-)

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Reminds me of childhood visits to my granny's house. We loved to play in the crick.

oo cool treasures....we used to play in the creek at my gramma's house growing up....have bathed in rivers when hiking...that can get pretty cold at times...ha

You know, its pretty neat - you find arrow heads and I find sand dollars n shells - if we ever have the opportunity to get together I know what we would be doing. Right! Comparing, sharing and maybe even a little swapping taking place. You find treasures in your woods n creeks and I find em on the ocean floor, beaches n woods. I think we have the best of two places, Eh. Nice shots of little froggie n Lil. Hello to TM, M, A n Z lol
