Canada Geese and Goslings

Scott’s latest assignment is Hometown History and I hope you will join in the fun, the deadline is May 25, 2011. I asked one of my co-workers if we have any interesting history since she lives here all her life and she said none! It’s a small town and nothing interesting here.  So much help from her, I guess I have to look around and see.

I took these photos of the Canada Geese at the Charlotte Dragon Boat Race two weeks ago.  The weather in our area is fairly mild, instead of its normal migration routine, large flocks of Canada Geese have established permanent residence in the North Carolina area since  food is available throughout the season.

The large crowd and loud noises of the dragon boat races didn’t bother them at all.

    1. Scott, I guess there’s a story behind everything. I actually went out and took some pictures today and will ask another co-worker tomorrow. I’m sure it has some interesting story, she goes back to the time that they used the horse carriage. 🙂

  1. The baby chicks are cute!

    I would think your hometown has a rich history in textile and furniture making. 😉

    1. Cambree, it’s a neat place to live and raise a family. I’ll write a post tomorrow about downtown Hickory. It’s too bad that I missed the farmer’s market on Saturday.
