Happy Birthday Paula

Yesterday, I went Eagle watching. My friend Paula's B'day is Tuesday and for her b'day monthy get-together, she wanted to go watch the eagles. So, we reserved a spot on the tram that leaves from Alton and made plans to meet up. Well, yesterday started w/a temp of 7 degrees!!! Yikes it was COLD!!!! I dressed as warmly as I could (I actually wore sneakers, not crocs!) grabbed my tiny little camera & headed out.

Brrrrrr. Good thing we decided to go w/the tram. At least it was warm inside & the drivers pointed out the eagles to us. I had no idea there were eagles without white heads. Until they turn about 5, their heads & tails remain brown. So, I've probably seen TONS of eagles & just thought they were a really big black bird. We had tons of fun. I think my toes are just now thawing.

Here is the card I made for Paula. Turned out just a bit pink, don't you think.

Great eagle pictures and great card.

I hope your toes thaw out soon!

There's no such thing as too much Pink, Suzi. Love the card.

Aren't eagles so majestic? I would love to see them up close like that.

That's so cool that you got to see eagles with your friend.
