Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!

As of this writing, this is one wet summer! I'm finding it increasingly challenging to get my yard mowed because it is storming every afternoon when I get home from work, and every storm is bringing down tree debris which has to be cleared before I can mow, and I can't clear the debris when I get off work because it is storming! So my only window of time is on the weekends, and only in the morning because the afternoons are too hot. This month my weekend mornings are largely claimed by fun Mensa events! So if I unexpectedly don't show up for an event, you might want to check my yard, I may be lost in the high grass and unable to find my way out!

We have a really fun event planned for August - an outing to the Marianna Caverns! If you have never been to the Caverns, it is WELL worth going. If you have been to the Caverns, it is WELL worth going again! It will be cool in the Caverns even when it is broiling hot outside. Depending on the amount of rain we've gotten, some sections may be closed off, but even when they close off portions of it, those that stay open are fascinating! The stalagmites and stalactites and various formations are fascinating and beautiful. There is also a beautiful nature walk in the woods that affords beautiful views and unexpected cool vents from the caverns below. On Saturday, August 5, we will meet at 10 a.m. in the Best Buy parking lot on Apalachee Parkway and carpool over. There is a cost for the admission to the park for the vehicle, and a cost for the tour of the caverns. There is also a gift shop and the last time I was there they also stocked some food items. Dress for the weather and you may want to bring bug repellent (after all, it is Florida in the summer) and good walking shoes. Hope you can join us, it is an amazing place! Check the calendar for the other events this month brings us, lots of fun stuff!
