Y and Z

Hi Friends
Happy end of the week to you.
This weekend marks the start of summer ~ do you believe it!!!!
After that long winter and chilly wet spring
We are ready!!!

Here we go..  the final installments of May's A~Z

Y is for....
Yacht, since Papa spoonful and I took the yacht out for a cruise yesterday.

It was a beautiful sunny day
 and the only beach dwellers were us and the wild life.

Of course we spent most of our time  relaxing on our floats.
The water is very warm already!

The coolest part of the day was watching a Heron catch a snake.

Herons are such pretty creatures.
We always refer to them as the Jurassic Park bird
 ~ since they look prehistoric

On our way home we picked up a few dozen of crabs for dinner.


The boat was great, the beach was nice and the crabs were fantastic
..... And it wasn't long before I was sound asleep
catching up on my ZZZZZZZZZZ's

It's been a nice May!!
Have a wonderful Friday everyone

Those crabs look soooo good!
I am really looking forward to warmer weather, we are still in the wet, cool Spring phase...

Beautiful pictures! I've never really thought about herons as a Jurassic Park bird, but you're right, it does look kind of prehistoric.

Sounds like you had a great day! So glad you had a chance to take the yacht out for a spin-enjoy:@)

I would love to do that..warm water sounds wonderful to me! We have lots of the Herons or cranes here..right out in the farm fields, one day I counted almost 75 of them! :D

Happy Friday!

Oh you lucky thing, going into summer and getting out in the boat. How lovely, but it mean we are going into winter here!
I like Herons too. How about it catching a snake!
