A walk in the sun


I'll be inside today, toiling for Taxaide, but yesterday I took a wonderful walk in the deep powdery fresh snow and sparkling sunshine. My dogs loved it, burrowing under the snow for voles (they didn't catch any) and bounding through the drifts. I loved being outside in the sun!

This is the Memory Isle Bridge. I'm not sure why it is called Memory Isle or what it commemorates, but the island in the Rocky River was created when a dam collapsed a very long time ago. The bridge is the only way on to the island. The picture I wish I had gotten was a long line of Canada geese sitting in the river, fifty or more, lined up facing me. Swimming regally past them was a swan, like a general reviewing the troops. Camera misfire!

Let's just commemorate the bridge and the generous sunshine. My dog would have loved this.

We've got just over an inch snow around Paris. CHAOS.

No sun so I'm really enjoying this one. Hope you're enjoying doing all that calculating (yuck).

When I enlarged the picture, I could still see the geese and it really is a lovely scene! I think this picture is just about perfect. Love the red bridge!
