Maax here! It’s been kind-of-a-quieter weekend, what with the cloudy day and all. But the rain held off long enough to put up the bouncy house! The kids had a great time in it. They also had a great time at arts and crafts and kids games in the playing field.
Tami didn’t get pictures of any of it though, because she was down at the lake. And I bet you can guess what she was focused on . . .
With her largest camera lens, the tripod and an extra battery. she was bound and determined to get photos ~ good photos~ ~ of the eagle baby, or babies. Even though lots of campers had reported two, just like with fisherman and their tall tales, Tami wasn’t going to announce it here until she saw it with her own eyes. Or someone brought her a photo.
When she got down to the point on the lake, she found quite a few campers with their binoculars trained on the nest. Yet none could claim to have seen two eaglets that morning.
For at least fifteen minutes, they only got glimpses of the one baby
and as cuuuute as he was, Tami still hoped for one more. She and the other campers talked about how one baby will sometimes (shudder) eat the other . . . or they get dehydrated and die . . . or one pushes the other out of the nest. After a few more minutes, she said to the other campers, “I guess we’re down to one.”
Suddenly, there was hope . . .
And the second baby made an appearance!
Whew! I was getting a little nervous there.
Next weekend, we’re having an ice cream party on Saturday night. We still have some sites available if you’d like to join us!
