3. On our walk yesterday, a small flock of Ibis took flight in front of us. It was fun to watch them take off. 

4. Early voting begins today in our county. Chris and I have appointments to be some of the first to cast our ballots! Get out and vote, or don't complain!

Shadow Selfie on the Beach

5. Shadow selfies on the beach. Instead of watching a football game we really didn't care about, Chris and I headed off to the beach yesterday during the 4 PM games. It was a windy day and we enjoyed watching the tide come in. We took this image of our shadows, a shadow selfie!

6. Today in History. On October 24, 1901, a 63-year-old schoolteacher named Annie Edson Taylor becomes the first person to successfully take the plunge over Niagara Falls in a barrel.

After her husband died in the Civil War, the New York-born Taylor moved all over the U. S. before settling in Bay City, Michigan, around 1898. In July 1901, while reading an article about the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, she learned of the growing popularity of two enormous waterfalls located on the border of upstate New York and Canada. Strapped for cash and seeking fame, Taylor came up with the perfect attention-getting stunt: She would go over Niagara Falls in a barrel.
