it’s a wild life in robbinsville

2-turkeysWhile we don't see many deer (they say it's all the hunting dogs that over populate our area) or bear (they say they are everywhere, just pretty shy), what we do have in abundance are turkey. Could have something to do with the feeders scattered around the property, but they are our entertainment on many occasions! My favorite is seeing the jakes strutting their stuff among the womenfolk who could really care less! (I won't draw any parallels here!) And hearing them cackle and chat with each other! Community…makes everyone a happier being!

Some of *our* girls (hens) are sitting on eggs which has me excited to catch a siting like this one sometime soon!

Observing wildlife…a fun activity that may not be on google's list of *fun things to do in Robbinsville* but it's on our Whisper Mountain list! Speaking of google's list, when I did this recent search one site put this tip on their page: Increase your radius in the upper right corner. Yep. It's true (and had me laughing…yes, out loud!). If you're looking for something big to do here, you better increase that radius in your search. But me, I find small town livin' is the best!

Happy May, friends!

(P.S. Only 18 days until I get my camera back! Just had to share!)

Turkeys-2 Our minds and energies are being spent on preparations for the new arrivals that will be trottin' the Whisper Mountain trail this week! I can't wait to introduce you to our summer staff!

For now, I wanted to give you a peek at the littles running around! How Mama Turkey keeps all her chatty babes in tow intrigues me! As I watch, I find myself grateful that I only have 3 (though some would say 4!) to look after rather than ten!TurkeysWhether tending to the family like Mama Turkey, or preparing for summer like the WM Staff, or working, living & playing however it is you do, may the walking be with joy as we walk with a thankful heart!
