Playgrounds

The playgrounds are full of interesting things to climb on. So pack a lunch and plenty of water and spend the day at the park. What could be more fun. 

 Check out the trees while you are there as well. You can find many interesting shapes, colors and things you never saw before.
Till next time.....

Pelicans

 I took a ride through some wildlife yesterday and these are two of the Pelicans that I saw. The top one decided to take a dive for some food just as I snapped the photo. But decided it was cute anyway. I have been through this wildlife area before and it was so different this time. The weather was warmer so most of the animals were seeking either the water or some cool shade. Last time they were more in the field areas.
I love the reflection in both of the photos. I could not have asked for a better photo than the one I got here. This Pelican was just swimming and waiting for me to take a picture. The animals here are so used to people that they don't scare easy. So if you want to take a photo, you can, very easily.
Till next time......

Loons

Loons have the most enchanting sound. It is almost a haunting sound, at least I think so. Ever since I saw "On Golden Pond", I have been fascinated with them. While on vacation in Nova Scotia and other parts of Canada, I was treated to seeing them on one of the many lakes. They can stay underwater for as long as three minutes if they are frightened. So when they dive into the water, you may not see them pop up right away.



I would imagine most of you have seen On Golden Pond at least once if not more times. I can't even count the number of times I have seen it. It is a rare movie and if not a classic, it should be. But one of the things I enjoyed, besides the interaction between Katherine Hepburn and Henry Fonda, was the sound of the loons on the lake. I was fascinated by them.
Till next time.......
