Mosaic Monday - Wetlands Visit
I took a visit to the one of our nature parks on Saturday. I was celebrating getting my taxes done and I will receive a small refund. This week is going to be a full one so I put all my photos into one mosaic.
The day was one of the first where we can see that summer will get here. I invited my aunt to come with me and we spent some time on the board walk which goes across a small portion of Big Lake. There was still ice on the some parts of the lake. We did see a kayak and a paddle board so folks are desperate to have seasonal temperatures. The clouds were amazing. Of course, Canada Geese are a staple in our marshlands in Alberta. I have never taken a really good photo of the Red Wing Blackbird but there he is sitting on a dried cattail. The new ones will be a while coming but there is hope of summer sun and green grass. The highlighted photo is of a male Golden Eye Duck.
I totally enjoyed the afternoon. We headed inside to warm up and have tea. They have a bistro, several specialty stores and the Hole's Greenhouse at the Enjoy center. The bedding plants were pouring out of the greenhouse! It was a wonderful visit and I will be back!
