Greetings from Big Bear!
The Events & Activities in Big Bear are below. You can get more Events that are not on the sheet below if you like my Events & Activities page on Facebook.
This week the weather feels like fall in the morning but still summer in the afternoon with highs reaching 84 degrees. The sun is closer so I can really feel it beating down on me when I am doing things outdoors. Bring sunblock!
One of my sons and I are avid birdwatchers and we really love it. We have found birds in Big Bear that we have not seen in any of the books we buy around town. I have noticed this bird, the Great egret over on the Bakers Pond side of Stanfield Cutoff this whole week when I drive by so I had to snap a photo. Typically there is a Blue Herring in this spot. If you join my Events page on Facebook you will see the Blue Herring as the cover photo.
