Louisville, Kentucky skyline in low lying fog. Taken from Ashland Park, Indiana~
I saw an alert online last Saturday morning...
Common Loons at the Ashland Park area at the Falls of the Ohio!!
Yikes Common Loons are on my birding wish list!!
What are the chances that they would still be there?!
What were the chances that my husband Bill would even consider driving me over to Indiana?!
What will it be like for me if I just don't mention it to him?!
As soon as the words Good Morning tumbled out of my mouth, I could audibly hear the whispered sound of my voice clearly saying...
Common Loons, Falls of the Ohio... don't suppose you would want to take the dogs for a long ride would you?!
What the heck are Common Loons he said!!
I had him listen to the voices that I already had looked up in case I needed more bait...
He said sure that would be fine if you are up for it!!
I have been so good, really I have been super good, and patient and I really want to see a Loon in my lifetime, why not today?!
We took the drive over in heavy, low lying fog.
I saw birds, I saw three Great Blue Herons, a single American Coot, lots of Double Crested Cormorants, several Mallards, and a few Pied Billed Grebes...I LOVE Grebes!
They stayed near the bridge in the heavy, low lying fog.
I took pictures just in case this was my first sighting of Loons.
As we drove back home, I felt satisfied, hoping I could check a wish bird off my list. If not, I was touched that my husband was willing to bring me out, looking pretty much like a very pale, still weak me, trying her best to make it one day in front of the next.
I guess that I never saw a Loon, or if I did, I didn't recognize it as such.
The fog was low and heavy as stated and I could not walk around to try and see any better.
At this writing I am at three weeks post surgery and as of Wednesday have had a set back. One that is keeping me pretty much taking it easy until Monday when I go to PT again. We are not sure what has happened, but our prayer is that it is something that will work itself out, and not the new mechanism in my knee...that would for me, or anyon be the worst case scenario...

Single American Coot swimming for a bit of green and rest~
Can anyone see a fish? I mean really, use your imagination... I see it~
One of the three Great Blue Herons~
These last 10 mosaics done with Autumnal colours were all taken from my passenger side window as my husband drove me into the city for my first out of home Physiotherapy appointment last Monday. There had been an accident on the Interstate and this country ride, taken the slow way, made it to where I got these amazing colours, following an all night rain event~
Just for fun...I am so bored~
