I'm very tired and been very busy  
I haven't posted much. I was so tired and dead after our last kayak trip. A lot has happened. But mostly it's been good. We went to Weedon Island Preserve in St. Pete. First time in salt water and mangroves. It was gorgeous. But we weren't ready for how long it was. Four miles. We only went for one then had to come back. I got too weak and was having a hard time fighting the current. I don't know why they consider it an easy place for beginners. The mangrove tunnels were cool but hard to navigate. They were very narrow and we had to break our paddles in half to fit. My hands got sun burned despite having used sun block. I'll have to invest in some light gloves. I've been putting lotion on them trying to heal them.

On the 19th my chicken Mocha died. She died on her birthday and was exactly five years old. I wasn't upset. I've been expecting it and I got lots of pics and a video of her a few days before

The day before the trip to the preserve I visited my friend BadCowboy and had a very good time with her. I'll make a post later with pics of everything and video. Just wanted to do a quick update as I'm tired now and about to go to bed. And today I got some inking done. I've inked about half of the Leeanix pic so I'm very happy about that. I have a new pic of George I need to start to ink as well.

I'm still tired and it's been four days. I thought I'd be well enough to do something simple like the lake but both of us just aren't up to it. That place really tired us out. I really have to protect myself from the vicious sun. I don't want to get burns as it increases your chance of melanoma. It's funny being out in nature more in a hot climate I'm actually wearing more clothes now than before. This is my first year wearing long sleeves and might look into super light long pants too. My first hat, I've never been a hat person but now I have no choice, and seems I need to cover my hands too. I understand now why George wears so much clothes though he's a desert dweller.

I have not doubt she had a good life. She wasn't a friendly chicken but she was always free and given lots of treats.

Yes I always write more details there than in the photo descriptions on DA.

You have been having a very big time!

I'm sorry the kayaking experience was not-so-good.

That's cool that you got to see BadCowBoy.

And I'm sad Mocha died. I really liked that chicken, even from over here. I can't believe it's been five years!

Yes been very busy.
We don't regret it and still had an amazing time. We want to go back. Just we didn't know how hard it would be and over did it at the end.
Yes was nice to get together with her.
Yeah she was one of my blue egg layers. Now only Raptor lays blue eggs. I hope that the new Easter Egger will be a blue egg layer. Yeah does not seem like five years.

I'm glad you had such an amazing time, even if it was more physically taxing than you thought it would be. It's still good to get out in the fresh air and sunshine and get exercise and see all the beautiful places and nature.

Aww...one of your blue egg layers. Well, I hope you get another one.
