Indian Field Creek, York River

Today I decided I needed to get Bitsy and Little Hawk out of the house for a while.  Being the youngest they sometimes find themselves "getting shuffled" around all the busy-ness of the big kids.

It turns out that 3 of the kids had plans with various parties so it was myself, Dragon, Bitsy, Little Hawk and the dog.  We decided to see if we could find a quiet spot along the Colonial Parkway - sometimes you can, sometimes everybody is out fishing.  And with a big ol' labrador a quiet spot is helpful.  Kahn Sol (that's the dog) is a sweetie but he is big, and he wants to play in the water, and not everybody is comfortable being around him... so I try to be considerate.

One of the fun things about living here is that every where we go seems to have an historical marker:

This area is called "Indian Field Creek"

I brought a sketch pad & pencils

Thanks for sharing your day at the river. I am sure the children enjoyed it also.
Thanks for stopping by.

First we got York River oysters at the restaurant, and now this blog post. I'm feeling a little homesick right now! :) (In the best possible way of course.)

Hi Cailin ~ Sure enjoyed your cross-country photos. Just spent the last few minutes browsing thru previous posts and really enjoyed everything. Especially enjoyed the photo of the children playin' by the river in this most current post. That composition looks like it could one day be a painting. Have a great week!
