Interrupting My Reflecting…

…because of the glorious sunshine!

Dear and I headed out in the sunshine for a walk on the Burke Gilman Trail. This trail runs along Lake Washington.

The seagulls and ducks were excited because someone had thrown some bread on the end of the dock.

This bird is not a seagull or a duck and a lot larger. Couldn’t identify what it is. It didn’t have a white head like a bald eagle.

We walked off the trail to check out this small preserve.

I believe Lake Washington is the 2nd largest lake in the state of Washington.

It was windy enough to make waves on the lake.

Our walk and this day was just ducky! Everyone we encountered was smiling and expressing jubilation over the wonderful sunshine.

Hope your week has been just ducky, too.

Reflections

My walks on the trail give me some great photo opportunities. Today I’m sharing some reflections that my lens captured.

Linking to Weekend Reflections.
All of these photos were taken in Washington State on and around Lake Washington.

I’m happy to be headed into a weekend with my sore throat and coughing spells gone. Woohoo! Apart from the rain and wind it should be a quiet weekend at this old house. It’s good to have those every once in a while. How’s your weekend looking?

I’ve started walking with a group from the Senior Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays on the Burke Gilman Trail starting at Log Boom Park in Kenmore, Washington. I was a little early last Thursday and walked out to the lake to take some photos.

P1050615The trail runs close to Lake Washington going west from Log Boom. If you walk in the opposite direction the trail continues along the Sammamish River that runs between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish. The trail is a great place to walk or ride a bike.

It was a lovely peaceful morning at the northern edge of Lake Washington.

P1050621This morning I’m headed out again to the trail in the misty rain to walk. I’m relieved by this coolness after being in 100+ Southern California.  I’m enjoying my latest activity boost with walking on Tuesdays and Thursdays and my exercise class on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Got to keep at it!

It’s a Bird, it’s a Plane, no…

…it’s the sun!

We finally had a full day of sun on Wednesday so I packed my camera and headed out to document the golden orb and it’s effect on some of our landscape.

These photos were taken at Log Boom Park on Lake Washington.

I found out this is a male Bufflehead Duck thanks to Bev. Thank you Bev!

Ahhh…that was nice and it’s enough to get me through our next couple days of rain that are in the forecast.
