Yesterday we had interesting weather - sort of an April kind of a day. The sun was playing peek-a-boo with the clouds, which made for a very busy sky. When we started out it looked as if it were going to rain (and I didn’t bring my rain coat.)
but Gizzy pressed on wanting to walk
so walking we went, no matter what the sky
There’s lots to discover around the lake, especially for a little guy like my boy. The water was a bit choppy because we had a decent breeze.
The sun kept trying to break through – and here come the duckies…I have not seen Victoria, the goose, the last few times I walked, so I believe she may have decided to move on…perhaps to find some of her own kind.
Gizzy, the big, bad duck herder! He makes sure they go back into the water and I let him because I do not want them out in the street where the cars drive by too fast.
Good thing I watched where I was going to sit…there was a bee on my chair (rollater) – while Gizzy keeps exploring!
I found some pretty Paperwhites along the way!
…and some more ducks found me. I gave them some kibbles as well. They all know me by now and come when they see me (in spite of the dog.)
I found a good place to sit and groom the boy. He loves to be brushed/combed especially under the chinny-chin-chin!
I took this photo from the boardwalk – I like the way the clouds reflect in the water!
After we crossed the bridge, we sat down again and Gizzy had a good drink of water!
Someone drove up that got Gizzy’s attention and a bit later, the wind picked up as you can see by his fur.
I saw a little bird on a tree branch that fell into the water – and further down a white Egret stalking his prey (sorry, my zoom lens does not have much zoom!)
On the home stretch, the sun was out again and the water glittered the way I like it the best – diamond chips dancing on the water – just lovely!
I saw these Camelias blooming, cheering up the otherwise gloomy landscape.
That concludes Gizzy and my little adventure. I had to post this via Windows Live Writer because Google tells me I have used up all my 1 GB picture storage space and now I have to purchase more – has that happened to anyone of you yet? Are you paying for more storage? I would be interested in finding out before having to pay for posting more photos on Blogger.
Also, what I have noticed is that when I go back and edit this post in Blogger and adjust the picture size, the quality of the images are compromised when enlarging them - they are not as clear! I will go back and edit the photos in Windows Live Writer instead!
OK, this is what I have learned today: I'm out of storage in Google and I have to buy more storage, instead, I have posted this in Windows Live Writer. Images enlarged in edit mode on Blogger get blurry, but reducing them in edit mode do not. Therefore, make the photos in Windows Live Writer LARGE and going back to edit them in Blogger to Medium works better. UNLESS you configure your proper picture size in Windows Live Writer from the get go and then you don't have to go through all that editing stuff. I will try that next time.
Any input you have concerning similar experiences, please let me know!
Happy weekend...and don't forget to enter my Giveaway!
