An Early Outing

I got up early today so I thought I’d step out for a Timmies coffee. I then went for a little drive and ended up at a park not too far away. It was so nice and peaceful there. I parked the car and rolled down the windows and just took it all in; the sounds of nature ... the birds, some ducks and geese and the odd squirrel in the trees. It was so serene.

It was interesting to watch the ducks and geese as they sat in the middle of this still frozen man-made lake, anxiously waiting for the ice to melt. I wish I’d brought my camera along.

There were also some geese wondering around on the grassy areas ... munchin' on some old grass. What was really sweet about it is that often they were walking in couples. Obviously they had found there mates and were just waiting for that darn ice to melt.

It was a real treat for me watch nature doing its thing. I definitely left feeling more calm and relaxed.

I love to do that. Especially fortified with a Tims.

When I was a kid, my mom always warned me to be careful of wild geese, because they can attack you if you get too close.....

I remember the geese used to congregate in a park not far from our home.
