I had a lovely walk this morning even though it was a bit chilly. After breakfast I sat outside and read for a while but it was a bit too windy.

After lunch, I was chatting with Dee on Yahoo Messenger and had just thought about having a nap when Gordon said he wanted to go for a drive and find the swamp that we had seen the other day. We drove some back roads but didn't find it.
We then hiked a trail at the Haserway Wetland Trail. It was a pretty trail and the wind had died down making it a beautiful day for a walk.

I then suggested that we drive in to Grenada and take the same route that we had taken the day before yesterday and there it was - the swamp! So, Gordon got his photos and was happy!
This is the red flower that we saw along I-55 on our way here from Louisiana this week. It looks like an Indian paintbrush to me however one of my readers tells me it looks like Crimson Clover. Not being from this area, I would go with her identification.
Back home I finally got my nap, a shower and started getting dinner ready.
This is such a gorgeous place! Due to weather heading north to Illinois and then east to Ohio, I think we'll be staying here an extra day and traveling on Tuesday.
