Father's Day Visit

This year, I got the chance to visit my fathers grave site and the day after. Was just the way it worked out. Along with me riding Shotgun, was brother in law Mr. Bill.  We stopped briefly at barn and then went right to the cemetery.  As we got near the top of the roads to where our family grave sites are I saw a sentinel at edge of would line looking out. This photo was from a few hundred yards away. I went to max zoom to get the next one.

  It just stood there watching out over the graves for a few moments. Once I got back in the car, it turns slowly and went back into woods. Must have been thinking that its turn to watch over the people was over, and now is a humans turn.  I visited with the family for a few minutes before going over to see dad. 

  When we got over to Dad's stone, I noticed a book with a pen in it. I thought it was strange. It seemed to be half way down in the dirt. I texted my sister AnnMarie, and told her about it. Comes to find out, last year on the anniversary of my Dad's passing she had visited him, and had left a crossword puzzle book and pen for him. She texted me a pic, and I sent her mine. 

  Well, I guess he must have finished this one, and is waiting for the next one so he can continue.

Weekend in Fairport Continued

  Found out the name of the park we visited in the Blog below. it was Tinker Park.  This adventure took place at Powers Farm. here you can go and meet and feed some animals. They also have this HUGE teepee that they erect and decorate the insides with different carved pumpkins. Also, they offer a Haunted Hayride as well as some goods and veggies inside.  Amongst the animals on display are some sheep, Alpacas. Shetland Pony, Burro, Peacocks, Pig, Chickens, Rabbits, and some Deer.

  I will start off with the Giant Teepee.

 Here is a view from the ground looking up all the way to the peek inside the teepee. All photos here were taken with a flash inside. It actually was very dark.
