Camping at Mt. Cheaha!

We ate at the Cheaha restaurant last night after hiking all day. The service was really slow, and the food wasn't great either but the sunset was awesome.

Big Ugly Spider

This guy had an enormous web strung up accross the Nubbin Creek Trail. The reason he is on the ground and not the web is that I plowed right through the web while hiking. As I was pulling spider web out of my beard he was hanging from my elbow by a piece of his spider-thread. It really gave Mary a jolt as she hates spiders, but really freaked me out as I had his web all tangled up in my beard.

The photo is shaky because I was running with the camera. Ileya likes to be the one out in front on a hike, and she had stopped to sniff something and gotten behind. She was trying to get around me and I wasn't going for it. Posted by Hello

Ileya had a great time camping, but she often wasn't too sure about why we were sleeping in the woods rather than going home like we usually do after a hike. Posted by Hello

The Greater Dane in her Great Domain

Thursday night after the storm we had to get Ileya out of the house. This is the entrance to her favorite place, Keisel Park. It is a no-leash dog park where people can walk thier dogs without leashes. There are lots of trails and it's really nice. Ileya gets to go every day, sometimes twice. This was taken Thursday night, the winds were still howling and the rain had just stopped but she had a great time anyway. We were the only people in the park which was kind of unusual.

Mary and Ileya at the park Thursday night after the storm. Ivan didn't do much damage around Auburn, we were lucky. Posted by Hello

Spike went to Auburn with me to ride out the storm. He thought he was on vacation, he had a great time exploring the back room of Mary's house. Posted by Hello

Billy had the most damage of anyone I know. This tree fell onto his house from next door, and another large tree fell from his yard onto his neighbor's house. The other tree also busted his gas line causing the house to fill with gas, which could have been bad. Luckily he wasn't hurt, and insurance should take care of the damages. Posted by Hello

The day before Ivan hit the grocery stores were cleaned. This was the bread section at Winn-Dixie, ice and d-cell batteries were supposedly the hardest items to find. Posted by Hello

This phone-photo was taken a couple weeks ago at Winn-Dixie. They have a great wine selection but Billy stuck with the High Life!  Posted by Hello

Montgomery Century 2004

I created another blog for the Montgomery Bicycle Club. They had the annual century here last weekend and I took photos for them. Most of the club members don't ride they work so this can happen. Anyhow:

This is a photo Mary took at Woofstock in Auburn. I bought Mary a Holga last month and this is from her first roll. I really like the photo, Ileya is a great dog. Posted by Hello
