Reminiscing about Being on the Road

I took a look at my drafts and found this written in October 2017. Not sure how I didn't publish it, but it's worth a read!

What are you doing?

While dreaming of our Optimum Road Trip, we're still out on our walks and the trails in the neighborhood. While capturing this young Mallard family, this Red Finch had his eye on me only a few feet away.

To avoid Memorial Day weekend, we'll be heading up Wednesday afternoon and driving back into the city on... Continue Reading →

It wasn't until I uploaded the photos onto my computer that I noticed the affection between these two.   This gorgeous goose rushed into the pond as Kenobi tried... Continue Reading →
