Sunday & Monday 7/7&8/2013
After we used our coupon for breakfast at the Lodge Inn, Susan sat on the porch to do research for fly tying and I rode the roads of Lincoln. Twice. It's a small town.

I noticed a cabin that looked like it would make a decent photo so I stopped for it. There she was -- the deer simply watched me, then moseyed on across the road in front of me.

We had a good storm come up when Ray and Vicki were here on Friday -- they come up fast around here -- and Vicki said, in a minute there will be sunshine. The fishers cut short their angling to get home before the heavy wind, the thunder, the big hard rain and the lightning got them. After about twenty minutes the sun came out and there was a nice rainbow.
Today I entertained myself with finishing reading one of my books (The Guardian), doing an ukelele lesson, having my lunch and cleaning up a little. Then I radioed Susan (she was of course fishing) that I was going out for a walk. No more that ten minutes into my walk I heard the thunder behind those deep, dark clouds. Recalling the experience from last week, I headed back and radioed Susan to make sure she was heading back as well. This morning we had had a squall with lightning and all that comes with it -- but this afternoon we had only thunder, a little wind and a little rain. Not sure what the remainder of the day will bring, but I will try for that walk again if possible. Today is a stay at the cabin day.
Two birds separately followed along with be on my walk flying from pillar to post as I approached.

|This one is not sure whether to look at me|
|I saw those dark clouds behind me, so headed home|
OK, so -- about 40 minutes later the storm passed and the sky lightened up. Time for my walk.
|The same sky -- a little lighter|
|Horses came to greet me on my walk|
