We have always enjoyed going for drives, but we have been taking even more lately since there is not a whole lot to do in an empty house. Last week we came across Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge. It was getting late and I didn’t have the camera, so we decided we would do the drive-through the next evening. It was a beautiful place. The mosquitos were crazy thick, but we made it out onto the boardwalk and into a bird blind they had put up. It was peaceful and the birds were very vocal. We definitely plan to go back different times of the year so we can how it changes.
