Saturday 4 mile (almost) walk.

With the weather staying cool we are taking advantage of it and getting out about 6:30 to walk. But before we got going this was the sunrise. Lots of clouds in the sky. 

Out in The Wetlands it was perfect weather for a long walk.  Just an interesting tree that had been burned in one of the many fires that start out here. 
I like the look of the sky and landscape when there are some clouds up to make the scene more interesting. 
Lots of clouds looked like they were all coming from behind one of the mountains and radiating out. 
Almost surreal look to the day.
One of the ponds had a different inhabitant - a blue heron. He flew away but I didn't catch him in flight. Just got a blur.  Need to get back in practice of being quick to press the button.
A little creek with a strange small water fall. 
No idea why it was so red. 
The clouds reflected in one of the ponds. 
More and more of them, keeping the day nice and cool.  Hum...which path should we take. I think we went to the left. 
And yet another pond with clouds reflected in the water. 
Oh boy do I like this piece of wood. Too big to drag home. Probably a good thing as I imagine it would be frowned on to take it. 
I ended up taking a nap that afternoon. The weather stayed nice the rest of the day and on into Sunday, Father's Day. Our youngest son came over for a visit. Fun to see him. And he got me back on Netflix so I can continue watching The Crown. When I was little and wanted to grow up to be a princess I sure had no idea how miserable of a life real princesses had.
Bill spent part of the day cooking up a storm. He made a big batch of breaded chicken fillets. Likes to freeze them and use them for quick dinner or in sandwiches.
Other than that a quiet weekend. 
Sorry of so many pictures of the Wetlands, but that is all I have to write about. Unless it is reading, napping or working on an awful jigsaw puzzle or cleaning. Even more boring.
