|We follow the beekeeper through shady woods to the fallen tree.|
|Felled by the storm, he examines the open trunk and beehive within.|
|Animals have come and robbed the hive, cleaning out the entire area on the right. Only robber bees are left, taking whatever honey they can steal for their own hives.|
2. Moonrise Kingdom is a wonderfully creative, quirky movie. I'm still mulling it over the next day.
3. We walked straight into a piece of Americana. The little mountain town of Buchanan contains a Main Street (so-named), no traffic light, a soda fountain, library, antique shops, an old movie theater and homes with porches lining the sidewalk. Tonight, the American flag fluttered from many of those porches and the town was overflowing with families out for the carnival that was set up down near the river. We were there to pick up Daughter #4 and happened to catch the fireworks display as we arrived. We strolled a few more blocks and took in the carnival atmosphere. The sights and sounds at every turn were surreal and I laughed at the reality of it. It looked more like a movie set.
