Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center

It took me awhile to do this post because I lost my camera. It was somewhere in my house, but I couldn't figure out exactly where I put it. I finally saw the strap poking out from under my living room computer table. I guess that's what happens when you leave your things just lying around.

I guess I would have found it earlier if it hadn't been raining for the past several days. I would have dug it out so I could go back out to one of the nature parks. And I don't know why I was so careless with my camera this time because I usually take much better care of it. But let's get on with what this post is really about.

The dog statue in the picture above is what greets you as you walk in the front door of Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center. I like that dog. It's in the same spot that it was when I visited this place on vacation several years ago before I lived here.

A while back I would have taken you on a careful guided tour of the nature center. Today not so much. If you want the tour you can check out the link I gave you in the last paragraph. It's a nice link. You might enjoy it. Maybe you'll want to visit your nearest nature center after you follow it.

The nature center isn't the biggest in the world, but it shows some of the critters and natural features you might find in the area. I haven't seen any real caves around here, but I kind of like this little cave in the nature center.

I took this picture above from the front of the nature center. I thought it might give you a good idea of what it looks like there. I guess I should have thought to take a picture of the big windows in back where you can look out at the forest trails.

I've never felt comfortable writing about inanimate objects. That's why in the past I used to show pictures of mostly animals. I still do if I can, but I don't get as many picture opportunities of them here. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places. I'll have to keep looking.

I've been experimenting with my picture at the top of the blog. See, it's different. Oh, so you've never noticed it before? I look at the sidebar of yours. Maybe now you might be wondering what the T stands for in my name. Maybe not, but I bet you assumed it was The. Nope, it stands for Tiberius. My full name is Rattilla Tiberius Adventurer. So now you know.

And with that new knowledge an old important fact that you greatly needed has been pushed out of your brain. Don't worry, you'll never remember what it was. Now that we have all that out of the way, I'll talk to you later.


  1. Hello Rattilla Tiberius Adventurer. I heard that if you use someone's name right after hearing it you will always remember it -- so now I will. But it's a lot of typing for these old fingers, so I'll probably just go ahead and call you Ratty again next time ;>).

    I like Nature Centers -- good ideas and help there for things you can then go out and see for yourself.

  2. I bet kids would have fun looking around there.

  3. That looks like an interesting nature center!

  4. Glad you went to see Dot, it is small but pleasant once in a while.

  5. Looks like a nice nature center. I misplace things all the time. Sometimes I think I spend more time looking for things I misplaced than I do using those things

  6. i have a similar looking nature center, not far from home. we have visited so often i don't take pictures inside anymore. i noticed your image had changed, but it is similar, correct?? it is hard to keep track of everyone, that's why i never change my picture!!

    you have a great sense of humor, i will remember that you made me smile!!!!

  7. Rattilla Tiberius Adventurer, this sounds like Indiana Jones.
