FEATHERED FRIENDS

Hello Everyone, we are still on vacation but I pop in when I can.  Don't really have a lot of time as we have been off and out first thing, having a super time with my niece and her husband.  Don't have much computer time as you can imagine but love to pop in when wifi is available and I have a rare quiet moment, catch up on emails and then we're off.  Today we are going on a boat ride which should be fun.  The sun is shining!  


On a very hot day last year, two gulls enjoying a refreshing bath at the top of the fountain.

I am sharing with the following, with many thanks to all our hosts for bringing us these very enjoyable memes. You can see other participants by visiting their links.

  9. I think birds might be the only animal I know of that wants to get a bath.

    My dog is not a fan, she'll do everything in her power to get out of one.
