This is from yesterday, when it was pretty overcast. Today the sun was out, and it was warm and totally glorious. But the overcast helps to bring out the colours in the trees, and the reflections.
Lou Shasta and Pat Davis Lee. My kids and I came out earlier and were slowly making our way about the Island when we cross paths with my friends. Well it went something like that, there were texts involved.
I always love this when the seagulls rise up. There must be an official name for this phenomena. There were two eagles circling above, and the gulls always take flight when there are eagles. I got a couple reasonable photos of the eagles, but they are just small specks on the file, not very interesting.
This is Simon. That is Simon at the top of the blog with the red ball. He was I think six months when we took the top photo, and is seven and a half years in this one. He is the most energetic dog I have ever seen. He is a Blue Heeler Brittany Spaniel mix, his peep is Pat. She is pretty dedicated to keep him walkin.
It is seldom I am able to get good pictures of dogs in the water, just too many negative elements. But these came out really swell. I love the waves moving away from Simon in the first picture. The him looking directly into the light with the light side of his face showing, wow! As a rule Simon is not a water dog. But if it is not too deep he obviously has no objections to it. Blanca will not go in this far.
Finnegan. Seldom do I get a side view of the boy. Looks like we started to get some cloud cover, compared to the next photo of my boy Choco.
Chocolate trying to decide if he is up for another swim. He will not go into the water except to fetch. Even then he has to be encouraged strongly the first few times, but then he doesn't wanna stop.
Beautiful wonderful day at Norm Schoenthal Island.
