No one respects my privacy

The other day, August 5th to be exact, I had some stalkers — I mean “visitors” — from Australia come over. Their names were Steven (hat), Zach (plaid), Lauren (dress), and Henry (white shirt).

Unfortunately, Pond 1 had not been very photogenic for a long time so I don’t have many pictures of her in it even though she came to love swimming there. I am not going to make that mistake with Pond 2! You are going to see so many photos that you are going to get sick of them!
