Easter Bunny?

I had a visit from the Easter Bunny this weekend! He left me a present in the garage!

The practical side of me says it might have been the neighbor's chickens who left me these little presents....
...but I don't think so. Easter weekend...Easter Bunny!

It was a beautiful long weekend here in southern NJ. The Star Magnolia was in full bloom...

...just in time for the anniversary of sweet Scarlett's crossing the rainbow bridge on Sunday.

The weather was so very nice that we went to Fortescue every day. Look at who greets visitors on the road into Fortescue:
Can't quite make him out? Here's a closeup:

Spiderman...Spiderman...Friendly neighborhood Spiderman! He is wearing bunny ears, no less! Love it!

Yesterday, I even took my bicycle down to Fortescue and rode all around. My first stop, of course, was "my" house. Still vacant...still for sale... :sigh:
I should have realized that the recent nasty weather (high winds and record flooding) that brought lots of treasures up onto the beach......also brought lots of sand up onto the road. It was pretty deep in some spots. Here's a tip: Sandy roads and bicycle tires are not a good match. Can you see where this is going? Down. Yup...I completely wiped out. I'm all scraped up, bruised and sore... Ugh. Bikes are for kids.

Sorry you crashed and burned. Nice haul on the glass front.

Bike on the Wii island... my arches sometimes hurt a bit, but I haven't fallen down yet! ;)

LOVE the beach glass... Scarlett is a beauty... and the bunny ears on Spidey are adorable!

When I first moved to Myrtle Beach I learned that sand and bikes don't mix. I still have a couple of the scars to remind me.

Scarlett was gorgeous. No wonder you got hooked on the breed.

It's time to get our bikes out, too. Fortunately, not too much sand around here to trip me up.

Scarlett was a beauty.
