Of tractors and turkeys

Saturday we went up to Monks Corner (yes, we have real monks and they live at the corner) to observe a tractor pull, farm tool auction, machine/engine show, nature hike, and turkey science lesson.  So many things to do and all in one day.   The location was the Old Santee Canal Park.  Tons of tractors, motors, food, and tractor pulling.  AV took some lovely photos.  We attended the park ranger’s talk about turkeys and learned some great nomenclature.  Afterwards we went out into the park to walk the nature trail.  The geology is interesting in this particular area.  There are limestone bluffs overlooking the Cooper river.  Hills!
