We were housebound for three days but when the roads became passable, we decided to go for a walk at Gene Coulon Park. We bundled up and trudged around the lake mostly alone.
The stony walkers were dressed in their holiday finest and my husband decided to join them.
The trees wore their pretty lights and this one was joined by a little brown creeper.
The dogs were having a blast in the snow unaware they weren’t welcome – this is a dog free park –
while the ducks sported their finest headgear.
Enjoying the snow while we can but looking forward to warmer temperatures this weekend.
Very nice, Susanne and I love the bird photos. A walk in the snow is a wonderful experience. I used to walk to work in Port Townsend and when it had snowed everything was so clean looking and pretty and it was so quiet too.
Thanks Graham. I love walking in the snow! It looks like we’ll have it on the ground a few more days, then it’s supposed to warm up.
Brrr, chilly-looking ❄❄❄ But very pretty!
Yes, indeed! We’ve had lots of snow on the ground all week and it was great to finally go out for a walk in it.
Don’t inform on the dogs!
The ducks’ headgear looks swish!
Best wishes, Pete.
Hi, Pete! The dogs were having so much fun, we’d never turn them in! And I thought the ducks looked pretty suave, too! 😄
Well, we are going on day two of non-stop rain here, so at least we don’t have snow – that’s 15 feet worth in the mountains northeast of us – terrific photos as always!
Thanks, John! Sorry about all the rain! Hope you get sunshine soon! 🙂 We still have snow falling today but hoping to warm up this weekend into the upper thirties! 🙂
The mergansers are lovely. I hadn’t seen any since we moved to New England but used to treasure seeing them in Portland. You seem to have gotten our snow–it’s raining here.
Thank you! We’ve had unusually cold temperatures and snow on the ground for almost a week now. I’ve enjoyed it but am ready for thawing out and warming up!
I am ready for a freeze to keep Emmy out of the mud!
Awesome photos! Funny how the dogs were actually enjoying the snow, too!
Thanks! Yes, those dogs enjoyed it more than all of us, I think! 🙂 🙂
