Easter at Mississippi

I have spent this Easter with my cousin Momo. She suggested that we should go on a little trip with Tesla now that she has got rid of her cone. She has never been away before and her mom was a little anxious so we decided to go visit Socks, Scylla and Charybdis at their home at the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where it was safe and we have friends.


As we were leaving our host kitties kindly sent me a basket of lovely spring flowers. Thankyou so much!

I have also prepared a small Easter gift pack to take with us ....


We arrived early and while Scylla and Charybdis were setting up the picnic at the Butterfly Memorial Garden Socks took us to visit the solar fountain...


After the picnic we all lazed around the garden with our favourite drinks on hand and listened to the birdies singing.....


Before we went back to the house Charybdis showed us the geese family that lived on their property. She warned us that the geese might be quite unfriendly and that we should not get too close to them.....

All photos taken by Momo

Back in the house, the girls showed us the pictures that they took in their recent Irish trip and the stuff that they brought back from Munich. Both Tesla and I were envious and wished that we could have gone. Maybe next year....

In the afternoon, their dad took us for a spin in his boat and we passed by Cat Island, a barrier island not far from where they lived. Part of this island is now a sanctuary for migratory birds and alligators. Needless to say we were quite happy not to go ashore and become dinner for the alligators.


We teleported to our respective home soon after. Thankyou for having us, Socks, Scylla and Charybdis, it was a most enjoyable day and it was lovely to see you again.

What a lovely trip and gorgeous photos. It can't be right that an island called Cat Island is a sanctuary for alligators though. Migratory birds, fine, but alligators? No. That's just wrong. They should find another island, hehehe:) xxx
