Back in May we received a visit from one of our oldest and dearest Aussie friends, Chris. This was his second time visiting us in the US and since we were the first stop on his itinerary, we let him sleep in and had a very relaxed few days together.
We had heard that there was a bald eagle nesting in the Metropark just a couple miles from our house, so we decided to head off for a walk one day to see if we could catch a glimpse.

The boys love when Chris visits! Extra attention!

We did spot the bald eagle and the three chicks but even with our super zoom lens it was hard to get a good shot.

Thanks for swinging past Cleveland Chris! Always great to see you!
Speaking of guests, we're on track for annual visits from Australian friends. Who's next?
