Thankful Thursday October 17, 2019

Lacamas Lake Blue Heron
October 1, 2019
I am so thankful that even though we moved
from a beautiful mountain home we are still
living where we can walk amongst wildlife.
Many times I feel a more kindred spirit with
the wild than with so called civilization.
Thanks to Brian we have Thankful Thursday!
Have a lovely day.


  1. Certainly things to be thankful for

  2. There is something magical about nature.

  3. We hear you! Walking in nature is one of our very favorite things to do!

  4. That's a very pretty water scene and quite the big bird! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  5. That is a beautiful picture!
    Someday I'd love to move more out into the "country." Though I like living in "suburbia" and the convenience of having stores very nearby in case I need to grab something in a pinch, I enjoy being out in nature as well :)

  6. You also have far less work than tending to that acreage you had. I'm happy for that and that you can still be near the wildlife you so love.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Healing hugs to Russell and love to you and many scritches to Nurse Lucy. ♥♥♥

  7. That is a great shot.

  8. Mother nature always has beautiful surprises.

  9. It's lovely to be near nature, i am glad you have it so close.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page.
