Labor Day is Wildlife Sighting Day

Labor Day weekend was the second time we picnicked at Green River Lake State Park. This park is only 15 minutes away from our house in Campbellsville.

While entering the park, we saw deers eating breakfast and some wild turkeys loitering around. As we were fishing by the river, a pack of 5 deers crossed the river not too far from us. A little while later, 2 storks flied in and hung out on the river bank.

On the way out, we almost ran over a big snake. When we got out of the car to examine the snake, two lady park rangers pulled up in their SUVs. They belong to the federal army corps of engineers who manage the park. They got out to look at the snake with us.

At home in our backyard, we found our cat Laura staring bewilderingly at a turtle who was craning out its neck to eat grass in the neighbor’s yard.

It was a day packed with sightings of various wild animals.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
