A lot of weekends we are out and about learning more about the area we live in.  Living in Cary makes it very convenient to visit Apex, Holly Springs, Morrisville, and Raleigh.  
I had seen a picture of a huge acorn statue that was in a park in Raleigh and I needed to see it in person! It just looked so cool and since I love squirrels, it goes hand in hand! lol  The statue stays in Moore Square which is located in the historic district of downtown Raleigh.  So, off we went and we couldn't have asked for a nicer day, sunny and 80 degrees...Beautiful!

If you would like to know more about the acorn statue visit here  Acorn Statue

Hope everyone has a fabulous Saturday!
The Acorn is 10 ft tall by 8 ft in diameter!

Pretty park!  Great for all ages.

Winging It Wednesday

I've got a lot of random bird photos that have been taken anywhere from our yard to parks to parking lots. lol  Hope you Enjoy!

This Purple Finch is sitting on the roof of veterinarian's office.
They have  a bird feeder on the side of the building.  I was at the gas station next door. 

Someone's special..

Talented & Cute!

Ever since my first rescue of a baby squirrel, eyes still closed, I have admired all their God given talents and cuteness. :)  

They're so darn cute and have amazing talents!
We love watching them!

Hold Your Horses, There's More!

That's what I said to hubby when he was turning us around to leave and I spotted two more horses, this makes six!  They were way in the back and I could't see them before from where we were parked.  I'm so glad they're close by our home so I can ride by and admire their beauty and who knows, maybe I'll see a new face. :)

They're never lonely. :)

There's the Fourth Beauty

When I was a teenager I had a few friends with horses.  It didn't seem to matter how many times I fell off a horse, I always got back on.  lol  The worse fall I had was when I was riding bareback and following my friend, Billie Jo.  Now, Billie Jo owned horses and would compete, I did not.  On this day my parents had told me not to go riding, just take a break from it.  But why???  
So, after I get to Billie Jo's house we jump on the horses and go for a ride.  She and her horse took off down the dirt road, made a right turn and jumped a ditch.  My horse and I followed, making the same turn, jumping the same ditch, but then I fell off the left side...not good!  Off to the ER!  I had pulled ligaments in my arm.  Lots of pain and lots of physical therapy!  To this day I still wake up, from time to time, with my arm feeling like a tight rubber band and I have to work it out slowly.  I sure wish I had taken that day off from riding. :)  
Do you have any similar regrets?

here's  the fourth loving...

he or she was picking up some speed here, so gorgeous! 

doesn't the beauty in the back look like a ghost horse??

so peaceful.
