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!
