The younger ones were searching for things to sell in their nature stores to earn a little money.
They came home with baggies full of pine cones, shells, sticks, rocks, flowers, leaves and even a bleached-out crawdad claw. They proceeded to sort them and post signs listing their asking prices:
Very enterprising, they are.
We spotted a couple of ducks that live along the canal, but before I could get a shot of them, the kids scared them off with too much noise. Oh, well.
We did find this fish along the way. The girls somehow managed to convince me to take a picture of it. All I can say is "Yuk."
What a great way to spend an afternoon!
