A Golden Heart


Lots of gold and grey in all the rocks in this area. The matrix of gold below is almost a perfect pattern for checkers. It made me think of a few drawn boards made while camping with my kids.




Watching a flock of White Pelicans arrive a small little dog had to nuzzle in and get a hug.




A few dried fish along the shoreline, a gar and catfish.







You can see the observation tower I climbed in the last post peeking over the trees.

A lone Elm leaf falling

After a hard day playing a good meal of a grilled rib eye, guacamole salad and some homemade rye bread hits the spot.

  4. What a beautiful blue sky you had for taking those bird photos! Those dried fish are sure ugly. And what big teeth they have! Yikes! I like the dog snuggling under your arm..Ha!

  5. Pelicans were a surprise and delight to me. Growing up on the Gulf coast I'm sure I saw them as a kid but I don't remember. Gradually they disappeared until they were no more. I could research it and tell why the decline but suffice it to say, the impact of mankind was responsible. Pesticides or habitant ruination. anyway, it was remedied and they have recently come back. Now we see them patrolling the shore once again. Wonderful birds.

  7. I love watching pelicans - especially how they look like they're falling into the water when they catch a fish.

  11. I love the white pelicans and that fish skull with the teeth - oh I'd love to have that. why I don't know it's just intriguing looking, looks almost prehistoric. Was the little dog afraid of the pelicans flying overhead? so cute cuddling there.
