Finding inner peace, outside.

So as you know, I have a little gig working from home and I have to say that it's hard being stuck at home all day. It really is. Oh sure, you get to throw in a load of laundry or grab a snack but once you clock out, you are sill.....home...inside the house....haven't seen the light of day.  It's starting to get to me.

On Saturday I woke up at my usual time (6:30) and I went into the kitchen to make some coffee. All of my roommates were dead (asleep) and I knew they would remain so for several hours. I showered, got dressed, grabbed my coffee and my purse and got in the car and started driving with no particular destination in mind. If only I had my Disneyland pass. (insert big sob here)

I had heard about a park close by so I drove there and decided to walk around a bit. I am so glad I did. It was early in the morning and there was no one around except for ducks of all shapes and sizes. Within minutes I began to feel the tension melt away. This is what I needed. I walked out on to a little bridge towards a gazebo of sorts to look out over the water and that's when i pulled out my phone to start taking pictures. I had no intention of blogging about this when I arrived at the park but I was enjoying myself immensely and decided to share my little adventure with you.







The white duck noticed me and decided that I was worth investigating so he made a beeline towards me as you will see...




I didn't think anything of it so I started looking around...


And then I noticed he was eyeballing me.


I continued enjoying the view from the gazebo...


I liked the look of the weathered boards and the way the bridge curved....




I continued walking on the path and guess who decided to come out of the water and greet me.


I must admit, I got quite a chuckle out of that duck. Before continuing down the path, I looked back towards the gazebo and took a shot.


After I shot the previous photo, I noticed this homely fellow...He looks like a cross between a duck and a turkey, doesn't he???


I continued walking along the water's edge, just looking at the trees. I find great solace when surrounded by trees. It's weird, I know, but I am always drawn to them.




That's it for now...I took so many pictures on this particular morning that I want to share all of them. Well, maybe not all of them because that would just be waaay too many but most of them. See ya tomorrow!
