Beans and Water

We are at Pelican Lake which I feel would be better named Mosquito Lake.
Although there are gillions of them flying around I have not been bit once.
I don't understand it but that's fine with me.

Down by the lake's edge I wondered how far she would go.

After this photo she turned around and both front legs went in about half way.  It didn't phase her a bit and she carried on like it was nothing  It makes me wonder if she is one of those rare cats that would swim, not that I would ever test her on that.  I still think back to my dear little Sinbad who would never go near water at all.  This is a whole new experience for me...and her.


  1. She is young and curious, probably never seen water like that much. Brave Beans:)

  2. Good old Beans seems to be quite brave. I think she's going to be a great travel companion.

    1. I have just discovered that you have been leaving comments on my blog posts all along which I great appreciate. Unfortunately I was unaware of it as I see comments through them showing up in my email. Yours have never appeared in my email. I do not know how to fix this. If you see this reply, contact me by email hwyfy@gmail.com if you know what for me to do. Thanks.

    2. I'll send an email to your address, but I'm not sure what to do about the comments!

    3. Well, I sent an email to your address and got a message back that your email address does not exist! Grrrrrr.....

  3. In Florida I once saw a mama bobcat swimming with two kittens trailing behind her. Beans seems like a really great cat.
