Getting a new battery for the new camera
The first thing I did today was get on the internet to Amazon to see what I could do about my new camera battery that was defective. I choose to do a chat and after a bit the guy said he could refund sixty bucks so I could order a new battery from Amazon. I checked out the batteries that would fit my camera and found I could get two of them with more storage for sixty bucks so I decided to go for that as if the camera still has a problem I figure I can still return it. So I placed my order for the new batteries.
What to do today
This morning I went out to take care of the chickens and was sitting around waiting for the sun to warm the place up after taking care of their needs.
A hike to the hermits
It was a nice sunny day, maybe a hike was in order. I’ve been trying to catch the old hermit that lives up behind the state park by my place for some time now but have missed him because he wasn’t home. He’s home most of the time being a hermit and all. But he’s been out the last couple times I hiked up to his place so I’d give it another try. If I don’t catch him soon he might not be with us anymore as he’s getting up there in years. I think he’s somewhere around ninety now.
Armstrong State Redwoods Reserve
I walked up the road as it’s easier to get through the park that way.
Going up the hill
Off the trail
Finding the creek crossing
There’s not much water in the creek right now but the banks are steep in most places so I needed a place to cross which I knew was up here but I’d forgotten just where that spot was but I found it eventually and crossed over the small creek and started up the other side.
I use the back gate
The hermits place
Nobody Home again
Darn I missed him again. I looked around to see if he was still alive and living there. There was some signs of life around so I guess he’s still alive but maybe visiting somewhere over the holidays.
Stole some oranges
I remembered he had some orange trees in his hot house so I checked it out. The hot house was all fallen down but there were still a few oranges so I helped myself to three of them which I devoured on the way back down the hill. Very good. Noting like a fresh orange off a tree.
Heading back down the hill
Enjoying the day and resting
Realized I was beat
I made it back home where I realized I was beat so I got a cup of coffee going and then it was time to let the chickens out to graze so I did that and pretty much took it easy watching the chickens graze away.
And that was my day for a nice one. Got a bit of exercise.
