Hooked up these two birds the last few nights. A fat robin and a bluebird. Still need to be sewn and stuffed and get some fun legs and feet or shoes. A project for tomorrow.
On Easter day we took a drive over to Zaca Lake. I hadn't been there for over 30 years so it was a special treat to see that it looked just the same as I remembered. This area has been a sacred and spiritual place for the Chumash Indians for 13,000 years and now is a rustic resort that holds retreats in the wooden cabins.
We drove around the lake to look at the cabins and then took a hike all around the lake. It's an easy walk because the lake is small, but it is the only natural lake in Santa Barbara county. We saw deer, rabbits and lots of birds.
Before our excursion to Zaca Lake we had Justin's Easter egg hunt. The cats had to help him out as he searched under the big rocks and in the vines and secret hiding places my husband and I came up with.
