The weekly photo challenge is Peaceful.
We were driving to the store today. I saw this park with a big lake that was mostly froze over. It got to 11 degrees here this morning. When I stopped at the park it was 28 degrees. The lake had lots of ducks and birds, sitting on the ice or in the non frozen water. There were parts that were not frozen yet. There were benches all around the lake and people were just sitting on the benches looking at the lake. I went to a table by the lake to sit and take pictures. All the birds, some were big geese type birds, started running over to me.
The two big birds ran right up to me and were talking to me. I guess people feed them and they were asking me if I was going to feed them. They told me in their honks that they didn’t want to stand there and pose for me. When they figured out that I had no food for them, they turned around and walked back to the water.
There are several parts of the lake. A pathway goes all the way around the park. It was warm sitting in the sun and very peaceful. I am going to go back tomorrow with some bread to feed the birds, take a walk around and lake and take pictures.
