Where did August go????

Where have I gone off to? 
   I went for a bike ride with Kippy!
O.K.,.. so it wasn't a very long ride and he runs faster than I pedal, and I had to get off and push the bike up the hills because I'm a big sissy, and apparently have less then stellar leg muscles... Had I not spent so much time pushing the bike, I might have gotten back here sooner.
Are you buying the story?
Look, there I am, it must be true!
I have made some wee (as in tiny) attempts at creativity though...
This is my lovely new life size jug shrunken down a bit!
As  you can see by the bottle cap, I wasn't kidding about a little bit of crafting...
The flowers are blooming though, luckily they don't need much from me at this point.
Bees are dutifully doing their job....
Cricket the Wonder Pony has made great strides in his cart pulling lessons!
This is the cart above, that belongs to the "teacher" ~ but it's got really neat jingley things on the back!
Look at that! ~
We also went to the beach.
(We've been out cavorting around the country side on foot, bike and horse-cart...)
This area has a great story....
Nasketucket Bay State Reservation, in Mattapoisett, MA.
A developer bought the farm so to speak....
  It was farm, 209 acres; and a developer bought the land to put in a housing development.
  He got as far as cutting in a gravel road and then went broke? (lucky us.)
The State (of Massachusetts) bought the land and now it's walking/riding trails for everyone to enjoy!
It is an amazing mix of field, woods, and a mile of coast line!
I picture this is what all of the New England coast line used to look like before we humans got involved.
I am so glad that guy went broke, it would have been a shame to ruin such a beautiful spot forever.
Soggy doggy.  :))))
Miss Ava is at her happiest when she's swimming..
Hubby is good at handstands!
Though Ava and Marley are worried for his saftey.
My Mum kept turning this picture upside down, cracking herself up, making it look like he is falling out of the water feet first.... Go ahead, stand on your head, check it out!
Someone as set up a little fire ring and brought some chairs....
A lovely spot to sit and admire the view. (and the crazy handstand people...)
This is what "dog tired" looks like.
Kippy snoozing, wedged into the back of the couch...
Do you mind?
Can't a duck have any privacy while bathing?
Until we meet again (soon) in Blog Land.....
Happy End of August.
Signing off from the East Coast of the USA.
