My cousin Charlotte and pretty Tesla have been very bored at home. As soon as Tesla got rid of her troublesome cone we made plans to visit Socks, Scylla and Charybdis at their property by the Mississippi coast during Easter. It would be lovely to see Socks and the girls again.
Just as I was ready to teleport a beautiful basket of flowers arrived from my sweetheart, Socks, and his lovely sisters, Scylla and Charybdis. Wonder if they were pickings from their greenhouse.
Since we are going for a picnic I have also packed an Easter gift basket containing special treats for all, including our host kitties' human family ....
Spring has come to the south! And that meant we could enjoy the outdoors. While the girls were busy setting up the picnic, Socks took the visitors to have a look at the solar fountain....

After a leisurely picnic, we all lazed around the beautiful Butterfly garden for a siesta. I just loved that elegant butterfly bench but Socks and the girls preferred the warm stones and soft grass.
l. to r. Scylla looking up at the butterflies, Charybdis, Momo on the bench, Socks curling up to nap underneath, Tesla sitting on the rock, Charlotte beside the bush, all with our favourite drinks.
Next, Charybdis showed us the geese family. Their mom warned us that the geese could be very vicious so we took the precaution of keeping our distance.

The girls then retired to the family room to show Charlotte and Tesla the photos we took in Ireland and what they brought back from Munich while Socks and I explored the piles of rocks around the property and have some time chatting together.
On our way back we stopped by the pond to take a look at the nest of the goose......
Instead, I was transfixed by what looked like a giant owl (biggify the picture and see if you see what I thought I saw). Socks laughed and said it was only a tree trunk. One of my Don Quixote moments, I suppose. Or perhaps I should ask SS to take me to the kitty optometrist for a pair of glasses, something stylish like Tybalt's would be fine by me.
In the late afternoon, their dad took us out on a boat to the nearby Cat Island.
We didn't stay too long because Tesla mom was anxious about her since this was her first ever long trip away from home. Thanks to Socks and his sisters for inviting us to a lovely Easter outing.
