Our New Perfected Travel Scheme
We're liking our new travel scheme:
1. IF you absolutely must tow somewhere, make it around a hundred miles.
2. Plan a nice interlude along the way.
Today it was the Seney National Wildlife Refuge -- a big one, well worth more than a short visit. This is where Trumpeter Swans got their boost up after threatened with extinction.
"There is nothing in nature more beautiful or more thrilling than watching two Trumpeters tucked into close formation passing sixty feet away like eight foot long arrows."
OK , I said that, but I don't apologize. We had just parked the Airstream at the far end of the lot, sorted out our gear and looked up to watch an Osprey nest across the lake when....WOW!
We took the quiet nature trail and there were lots more Swans nesting and feeding.
"FLY AGAIN! FLY!" (Parents have a little more on their minds; no demonstration flights today.)
