Caraboat & Heron

Hi everyone!  The video I have chosen for this post is a short two-minute one.  It is called "Caraboat aka Caravan Boat."  Hope you all enjoy it.  :)

The photo I am sharing today is one that I took a few years ago.  I was taking a nice walk in a park when I saw a heron.  You can see the bird in the tall grass.  They birds stand so still, like statues, so it was a pleasant surprise for me to see the bird.  You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.

My ankle has healed quite nicely, and I am very grateful for this.  Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts on my behalf, it means a lot to me.  By the way, have any of you heard that Google is supposed to discontinue the blogreader?  I am assuming this means the blogs we follow that show up on our dashboard.  I saw on another blog that someone said that she registered with Bloglovin and had all the blogs she follows secured this way.  What do you all think?

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I really appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.


  1. Well, that video made me smile. And it looks like there are an infinite number of variations on the theme. Not sure I would invest in such a thing but it's very interesting to watch going down the river!

    A friend of mine always wanted to live on a houseboat and travel the Intercoastal Canal, but he died before he got the chance. (I don't think his wife would have let him do that anyway!) :)

    The blue heron is one of my favorite birds and we are blessed with many of them in this area. It is a nice shot!

    Glad to hear about your ankle. Sounds as though your week has started off well!

  2. A lovely shot!
    I've never gotten one to stay still for me.
    I never used Google Reader. I'm pretty sure it's already gone.
    Your reading list on your dashboard should stay.

  3. Amazing, serve as a small hotel room both on the road and off the road in the waters !

  4. Interesting clip. Glad your ankle is doing well.

  5. I get confused with what comes and goes with our blogs LOL...some of the changes are for the best...I guess. Your videos are interesting to watch. Thank you for taking the time to post them for us. I am glad your ankle is better especially with good weather on the way. :)

  6. I did like the video....such a handy device!
    I'm glad that your ankle is's so miserable when in pain when you walk.

  7. The heron is so stately and beautiful! I'm so glad your ankle is better.

    I don't know what I'm going to do about the Google changes. I've heard of Bloglovin' but don't know much about it.

  8. I love the shot of the heron.

    I am hoping that the reader list stays on the dashboard.

  9. Praise God about your ankle! So glad to hear that news.
    The "houseboat" is too cute. I wonder how many of them were sold and enjoyed.
    Beautiful bird. You did well to capture such a great shot.

  10. Lovely to discover your blog and many thanks for visiting me.
    The caravan/ boat is fabulous and I enjoyed seeing your wonderful photos of the bird life.
    Happy new week

  11. Interesante Barco-Auto-Caravana. Bonita imagen de esa garza gris. Un abrazo,

    Interesting Auto Boat Caravan. Nice picture of this gray heron. A hug,

  12. The heron is very well hidden! I thought the Google reader was already gone, I know lots of Bloggers are really upset.

  13. Lovely video.. And nice picture of Heron. A regard from Madrid..

  14. i've actually never seen a heron in real life before. i hope to someday :D am really happy to hear about your ankle. and i think the blogs on your dashboard will be maintained by google, it's just that they're discontinuing their Google Reader feed, which is separate and also used by some for blog-following...

  15. I worry when they make those changes because I'm a computer putz and can't figure out how to keep things from getting lost.

  16. Beautiful heron, you've been lucky enough to photograph.

    I have not heard, that Google close the blog service.

    Greetings friend

  17. I enjoyed the video quite a bit! I've seen cars that do things like this and it's fascinating! Glad to hear your ankle is better. I did see Google Reader is done...not happy about that at all :(

  18. A caraboot, Linda... Fantastic !
    The picture of teh stork is beautiful !
    Didn't hear a thing of blogs, Google.

  19. the caravan boat is wonderful, never seen anything quite like that. Great shot of the heron

  20. Rien ne change pour la liste de blogs sur le tableau de bord.
    c'est google reader qui ferme (flux rss)
    J'ai bien aimé la vidéo, elle est géniale cette caravane.
    Je suis contente que la cheville soit guérie.
