As most of you know,I enjoy our local lake,Lake Minniwasta. No,I'm not a boater, or a swimmer, but the beauty I see from the shores of that lake are enough for me. Come with me for a slow walk at the lake and let's take note of the beauty around us.
Before we even get to the lake, the early morning sun lights up this fence and draws our attention to it. I find myself wondering, just how many people have walked right by this spot and never noticed any beauty.
Along the path the Wild Roses are putting on a show, just for us this morning. This one has an added interest. We stop and enjoy the beauty.
On this day, there are just enough clouds to make the sky look extra lovely.It is peaceful as we meander down the trail. Can you hear the birds singing away in the treetops?
As we reach the canoe launch area, we are greeted with a special surprise. The local K-9 unit has taken their dog Chase out for some fun.I am certain that Chase would have rather been playing in the water, but his handler commanded him to stay on that rock, so I could get a picture.Thank-you Chase.
We move along, but don't get very far as two White Admiral Butterflies catch our attention.
Anytime a photographer can get this close to two butterflies, we must stop and get those shots.
Once again, we enjoy the beauty of these delicate looking insects.
The sun is beginning to heat up the day,so we had best, get back to the car and head home, but not before we take one last look at the lake. It's hard to walk away from such peacefulness.
I have enjoyed your company on this morning walk.We really need to do this again, either at the lake or along some other path.
