Creek Time

Boy do we love the creek. We have been going to this particular part of the creek for years and years. It is a big part of our summertime fun.



We have had so much rain this year so our first outing was just this week. And because there has been so much rain strange things have been unearthed by all the rushing water. A cow tooth, a rib, some cool rocks and some kind of a horn. You rarely find this much variety.




On the way to the creek, Michelle informed us that the creek is her favorite spot on the face of the earth. And I have a confession to make.......After 4 years of living here I can firmly say that I think the mountains are more beautiful than the ocean. There. I said it.


Rio LOVED the creek too. She was apprehensive at first but then it wasn't long before she was playing in the water. We were afraid she would chase the cattle nearby but she stayed right by us so I think she will be a regular at the creek as well.

Awesome photos! Michelle is so pretty. A creek (like the ocean) -- with all its creatures and variety -- is never-ending fun!
