Pee Dee NWR……. Skywatch Friday

 Howdee all,

This sky watch post comes from Pee Dee National Wildlife Refugee near Wadesboro, NC. 

Jeff and I went on a Birdie outing.  If you want to read about the Bird we saw you can read the previous post.

This sad cloud greeted us as we started the boardwalk.  I don't know why it was so sad.

I Tried cheering it up…and eventually it just dissolved into the sky..

The wind picked up and brought in these beautiful white puffs.

The long strip above your sad clouds looks like a serpent. Once the many fluffy ones took over, I see many creatures among them. One of my favorite things is finding shapes in clouds,.

I never got in on this whole skywatch thing.-I've always been kind of an outsider-I'm really surprised that I ever did a blog.-I know the cloud is supposed to be sad but I find the whole thing hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.
