I play in the low 80s, any hotter than that, I won’t play…

CGMan and I golfed together this past weekend. We drove down to Williamsburg to meet some friends and play golf at their beautiful club. Okay, I don’t know from golf clubs, country clubs or billy clubs, all I know is, the course we played was beautiful!

I do not consider myself a golfer, so don’t get all excited that you know the next middle aged women’s phenom. I know how to play golf. I’m not great, but I’m not horrible. I don’t care. If it’s a beautiful day and not too hot, I like to get out with my husband and whack a few balls.

We played a best ball scramble with our friends. I have to take this opportunity, before it gets lost in obscurity, to tell you that one hole (a par 4), my ball was the best ball. All the way to the cup. Thank you, thank you very much. *polite golf claps all around*

I wish I could tell you more about the golf game, the scores, handicaps (whatever that is!) or even the name of the course. The reason? These:

We couldn’t round a single bend when I would just have to squeee! and take a picture of yet more baby geese. The ground hogs/wood chucks were cracking me up. Every time I saw them, I thought of this:


I saw a blue heron, too, but he was camera shy.

If I had known golfing was more fun than going to the zoo, I would have taken it up sooner.


  1. GREAT title. Back in the day I was a six handicap. Now I have arthritis in my left hip for hanging a toe and "whacking" too many golf balls at the range.

  2. No matter how many times I hit the driving range, I can only manage a drive of 150 yards. I'm not sure if golf is my destiny.

    And OK, what on earth was that lizard like creature? Was this in your yard?

  3. Those were two lizards at the rest stop on the golf course. Luckily, they were on the men's room side.

    At first, there was only one, but when I came out of the ladies' he had brought out his orange headed wife, who has no tail. They were really interesting!

  4. I've been on that course. Old boyfriend was a golf pro and played a pro match there. I dumped my golf game when I dumped him. The only hole I ever mastered was the 19th.

  5. I love that you took time to get these pictures! All your animal shots are great and oh what a day! I love Williamsburg. It is a rea pretty part of our country. Lucly you.

  6. I've never been a fan of golf, but I sure wouldn't mind a walk around that place... great pictures.

  7. I don't golf but I have ridden along with J while he was golfing and it was nowhere near as cool as your golf course. "Hey you woodchucks, quit chucking my wood!" Love it.

  8. Oh my gosh, I have to get into golfing! What a nice outing.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
