Wyatt checks out the Barrington (New Hampshire) Town Playground.
Wyatt’s Mom Meghan enjoys a laugh!
Electric fencing of today looks more like plastic bailing twine than ‘electric fence’.
Guess its been awhile since I have been on a working farm.
These ladies were chuckling at me I am sure.
Ollie, a Bactrian Camel, inhabits the farms barn and fields with a flock of Merino Sheep.
The sheep produce high quality wool while Ollie produces a high quality down, both are spun into yarn.
Bactrian Camels seek out and enjoy human interaction.
Ollie was bred in the northern midwest of the US, Wisconsin. Bactrian Camels originate in the steppe country of Eurasia and Mongolia. There are more domesticated Bactrian Camels than wild Bactrian Camels. For a while there was some concern that they were extinct in the wild.
Bactrian Camels identify humans by their breath odor, how one’s breath smells.

Jack Lally in face-offs got a lot of the camera’s attention.

A tip of the hat to the ref who was willing to go along with my positioning request.

People that love what they are doing and it shows! Paid staff and volunteers.
Good stuff! We would go back.
Set your camera to a shallow depth of field and get as close to the fencing as possible.
(Without pissin’ people off or disturbing the birds.)
The entry fee was more than fair for the time spent on the grounds, the time spent with us, and the experience with the birds.
Awenda, SC – Awendaw Green:
A blink-and-you-have passed-it-by place along coastal US Route 17 sandwiched between the burgeoning Charleston-Mt Pleasant Rt 17 mess and the quiet of the development-limiting Cape Romain NWR and the Francis Marion Nat’l Forest.
Not really noticeable on the highway map but apparently way noticeable on the live music map: AwendawGreen.Com. Regular Wednesday evening Barn Jams, four sets of varied live music on a small stage in someone’s backyard running from 6 to 10 PM. Coolers and a way friendly backyard cook out ambiance, food available for a reasonable price. Five bucks gets you in, seating provided or bring your own. Does not appear to be a well kept secret any longer. Lots of folk in attendance and way more then just friends of the artists and organizers.
This particular Wednesday evening a rather threatening and intense fast moving storm chased my cameras and I, and the artists and organizers after the second act of the evening.
First Up: Andrew McKnight originally of Twin Mountain, New Hampshire, currently of the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia.
The second and final act of my Wednesday evening was an up and coming very animated band: Myer .
Awendaw, South Carolina
The Georgia and South Carolina sides of the Savannah River just up river from the ever-present-just-on-the-horizon working Savannah harbor.
One must go into South Carolina, US Route 17, then SC 170 to the Visitors Center as well as the Laurel Hill Wildlife Drive.
Worth the trip: lovely wet lands as well as Spanish Moss draped Live Oak hammocks. Good bicycling loop (not road bikes), good photo ops.
We happened across this big boy auditioning for a Lubriderm commercial by the side of the road.
