Golf and Wildflowers

On Monday Kevin and I played nine holes of golf at Kestrel Ridge Golf Course.  It’s in Columbus, which is about twenty minutes from us.  We played there several times last summer.  They have a Monday special of $12 for nine holes with a cart.  It was pretty windy, but with the weather we’re having this year, we’d be waiting forever if we wanted great weather.

I haven’t played since last summer, and it was obvious on the first few holes.  I did improve as we went along.  Here’s Kevin teeing off.


There were lots of ducks in the ponds on the course.  I don’t know what they eat, but they kept dunking their heads under the water.  It was funny watching them. 


The weather has been quite cool, windy and rainy all week.  Things are supposed to start improving tomorrow.  All of our campsites are booked for the long weekend, so I sure hope they have nice camping weather.

Yesterday I went back to Eric’s house to do some more wallpaper stripping.  I should be able to finish the small bathroom with one more day’s work.  He was kind enough to let me do laundry while I was there.  Saving on laundry expenses will help defray some of the gas costs of driving to and from his house.  I thought gas was supposed to be coming down in price.  It’s still $3.75 around here. Ridiculous!

I have managed to take a few walks despite the crummy weather.  There are several of these gorgeous flowering trees in the park.


These wildflowers are blooming along the edge of the park.

So, that’s what we’ve been up to this week.  I’m sure we’ll be busy this weekend selling firewood and answering questions.  It’s been very quiet in the park so far this year.  I’m sure it’s been due to the weather.  Hopefully, everyone will have a good time and behave!
