I love to follow the little dramas that occur around the lake. Although it looks like the climax of this story is imminent, it’s really just a freeze frame.

We got our walk in yesterday morning ahead of the line of wind, rain, hail and tornados that swept through Middle Tennessee. I’m glad we weren’t caught in that mess, and I hope there wasn’t any damage at the lake. I’m afraid the storm might have beaten down the larkspur that is starting to bloom everywhere. I took a few pictures of the purple hillsides before the storm, but it wasn’t in full bloom yet. Spring is really coming along at Radnor, and storms, unfortunately, are part of it.
We pass this branchy creature popping out of the water on all our walks at Radnor. A distant cousin of the Loch Ness Monster, perhaps?
I saw these branches skipping across the water at Radnor this week. William, and all of his family were doing some skipping of our own yesterday. After a loooong basketball season where his team lost every game, usually by a whoppingly lopsided score, yesterday, after losing the first game of the tournament 20 to 4 at 12:00, they came back to the second game at 4:00 to WIN! They made 10 points, 8 of which were William’s. I don’t know the other team’s score as I didn’t go to the second game. I simply couldn’t take another one, watching William getting more frustrated. His frustration turned into something positive, because by 4:00 he was a man on a mission. One more game today. I will be there. William didn’t give up. I shouldn’t have either.
