Kayaking on the Old Ausable Chanel lets me re-energize my soul. Counting turtles on my way to the far bridge of the loop I think I missed a few on this log. I counted 10, but there were 3 adjacent to the log that I missed before I looked at the photo evidence.

So on National Live Creative Day be certain to do something a bit creative in your ordinary day. A little bit of arts and crafts or painting, or just dance.

Then after working up an appetite celebrate Eat a Hoagie Day followed by National Cream-Filled Donut Day.

For Christians around the world today is Pentecost Sunday. A day of celebration for when the Holy Spirit was sent to be with the disciples.

Today is also World Turtle Day. Turtle are my favorite animals. Counting turtles on the Ausable Channel in my Kayak is my favorite activity. The most I’ve counted on one day was 148 painted turtles sunning themselves.
