JB drove in, they brought out the meds and the handheld device and he paid from the car. Our vet told us her barn cat brought home a rabbit. Nutmeg celebrated by bringing in a chickadee. I'm going to bring in the feeders as soon as the rose-breasted grosbeaks arrive.
A giggle during the times of COVID–19.
Back to our drive...
Happily, collisions are down in the area.
Chorus Frog HuntIt was epic!
It was the last kick at the can. My assigned protocols said I'm to visit each assigned spot twice. I ended up visiting a couple thrice. I find it difficult to follow rules! I was assigned sites 300 and 301, then found chorus froggies in 4 other spots.
They will stop their spring mating shortly, and I will never see one!
|We made a plan...|
|C||609 Code Drive|
|D||202-2 North Shore Rd.|
Off we went. The local market was quite busy.
This is site C. A private road, but it was pretty quiet, except for the chorus frogs! The ponds lay on either side of the driveway.

From there through Smiths Falls. CheapMart was quite busy. I don't think I'd ever order groceries from them, and we try to boycott them. Their industry standards and treatment of staff, cheap goods, have destroyed the market for quality goods and materials.
This is site 301. (I've given up on site 300.) I couldn't get close enough into the swamp to see anything. I did hear lots of leopard frogs right near me, you can hear them in the video. The chorus frogs, as well as ducks, further out in the wetland, and you cannot hear them on the video. I was wearing my holey boots and should have brought my chest waders.

Someone is building...
I love these farm houses.
Bee keepers are getting going.
I like this spot.
House for sale!
As we drove, we drove into clouds.
Then, drove out of them!
I'm not sure what they are doing here. We have yet to visit this spot during an actual market day.
Part 2 tomorrow!
