"Run, Forrest, R - U - N !!!"
...and they're eating while Gizzy barks!
(I like this photo of our young Canada goose - I got him/her in mid stride)
There are a total of five ducks and one young Canada goose by the lake and when ever I go down there, they come a running or flying to get their food. I give them a few pellets of dry cat food because I read that it would be ok to give them now and again (they love it!), but NEVER dog food. Bread isn't so good either because it's void of nutrition and fills them up so they won't forage for their nutritious food that they need. The next time I'm in town I'll see if I can find some reasonably priced duck and goose feed. My friend Sandi, who also walks her dogs around here, usually has some cracked corn for them too, but they seem to prefer the cat food.
Speaking of Sandi, here she is with her two dogs Sadie and Tuffy, Gizzy's friends. Tuffy is a year older than Gizzy (almost 15), which is why Sandi got a baby buggy to push him around for when he gets tired.

On the other side of the lake, we sat on a picnic table (see Tuffy in the back ground in his buggy?) Sandi cracks me up. She always talks with her hands. She's a whole foot taller than me. I'm 5'2 and she's 6'2, so her hands are pretty large. Here she's telling Sadie to look at the camera and all Sadie does is look at her hands LOL
Here's Tuffy (or the Tuffinator, as Sandi calls him) resting his head and snoozing while we visit!

Cattails always remind me of our pond in Germany when I was growing up. I should write a book and call it "On Cattail Pond" instead of "Golden Pond."
I love the sparkling water in the back ground - reminds me of little diamond chips or dancing faeries!
I love this view with the shadows of the morning light filtering through the trees.
As we make our way back home, I pass a squirrel sitting on a pretty, green lawn...
This was a nice walk - happy Sunday everyone!
