Feline and Nature Friday Flashback to B.A.R. 2016

Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

Janice, my roving photo journalist, spotted this handsome kitty 
taking a sunbath on her deck.

Nature Friday 

In 2016 there was a most memorable meet and greet of
human and pet bloggers
We had bloggers from several US states:
California, Utah, Illinois, Pennsylvania,
North Carolina
across the pond from Scotland 

There were two entrances to the park
This beautiful covered Bridge that Beth, Arty and Dory found

And this scenic road through the lush green canopy of trees

We took a group photo of the pups who attended

Madi sent her flat self, Arty, Stanley, Murphy, Frankie, (Ernie was on the table in the background),  Hailey, Oreo, Casey, Jessie, Phod and Dory

Those who could not attend sent their flat selves.

According to the locals it was the hottest June on record, even hotter than 
In the morning we had a wonderful shelter at Brown County State Park

In the afternoon we all met at the campground where several members parked their RVs.
Dory and Arty literally had it made in the Shade.

In spite of the heat, there were beautiful sunsets
