A Pile Of Pinecones

I thought you may enjoy a day at the lake with me.  So grab your sunglasses…

Chimney Rock

This is Chimney Rock.  You can see there is still snow on the mountains.  I will never tire of this view at Priest Lake, Idaho.

Oh, look – the wild strawberries are in bloom!  I look forward to the sweet burst of flavor in these little red gems:

Ah, the sun feels so good, doesn’t it?  You can see it reflecting off the water.  Not much wind today just a gentle breeze.

Come on, let’s go to the beach!  I saved you a chair right by the water so you could relax and breathe in the fresh air…

And watch the waves gently caress the rocks and sand –

As you and I get ready to leave, you notice the wild rose bush unfurling its tender green leaves.  New birth next to the dead, dried rose hips from last fall.

We linger for one last moment, next to a pile of pinecones.

Listening to a woodpecker tap a tree, its rhythm reminding us that it is time for us to leave, this place of heaven on earth.

(No birds today – I will make-up for it tomorrow!)

Happy Creating!
