Yesterday was a gorgeous day in Eugene - especially the first half of the day. And, yes, we did reach 70 again! I had the opportunity to go for a walk again with Danielle, and the more I hang out with her, the more extraordinary I think she is. =)
This time, we went a different direction on our river walk path. I have to give Eugene a lot of credit where credit is due in that they've done a fantastic job preserving the area along the shores of the Willamette river to make it a beautiful place to walk/bike/or jog. There's plenty of beautiful colors of plant life:
And frequently your standard pair of Mallard ducks:
Lots of Canadian Geese with, at this time of year, adolescent goslings tailing behind Mom and Dad:
And, finally, lots and lots of turtles, sunbathing themselves on the logs. I love these guys. The city has gone to a lot of work to create ideal sanctuaries in the ponds surrounding the main river.
This walk also gave me the opportunity to test out the new "point and click" camera I purchased on sale from Target. It's a Kodak Easyshare, and I gotta say so far, so good! (It sure beats me cell phone which is all I've had to work with since my last "little" camera bit the dust).
Alright - technically this add-on pic should have been in the Trinity pic post, but I felt like it belonged in this post more - this heron took off from the shores where the Formal took place (along the same river) - so majestic!
