Boosting the Joy With Great Clouds and Orange Memories

September 27 2021

Walks soothe whatever ails, walks boost the joy, the love.

Great clouds last night.

Memories of four years of walks, climbing trees, throwing rocks and sticks in the water, playing in the snow, and many inspired poems. That was the walk this morning.

Forgot to post these orange beauties, from a walk last week.

A walk with Lillian earlier in the week. It’s difficult to get her out of the house these days. Success!!

Ornamental Grasses with Berry Bushes and Clear Skies

August 31 2021

Grateful I went for a walk yesterday morning, as it looks to be a no go today (due to the air quality). It was all about ornamental grasses and berry bushes.

Look at that beautiful sky! It is such a blessing to finally have clear skies and fresh air after weeks of smoke. I love you Mother Nature. You are simply THE BEST!

Colorful with Hot Beauty and a Sunset Dust Cloud Storm Show

June 28 2021

A colorful walk this morning.

June 29 2021

The walk this morning was HOT! Must get out even earlier. Whew! Amazingly beautiful!!

June 29 2021

We had a huge dust cloud (or something) blow through earlier (last photo). It completely blacked out visibility. Then the sky and clouds did this. Along with strong, gusty winds. Wild weather!

The last three photos were before the downpour. The rest were taken after, and as the sun was setting.

Another sky show last night. Such stunning beauty.

Gorgeous Cool Breeze With a Bat Pose While Nature is Magnificent

September 5 2020

Gorgeous walk yesterday morning.

September 8 2020

It finally cleared enough for a walk. Lillian’s choice: Our old neighborhood, with a refreshing cool breeze. Bonus: We got to see a cormorant in bat pose! Cormorants and pelicans are two of my favorites.

I am good tired this afternoon. A swim this morning and then a lovely hike to Tamarack Lake with beautiful people. Thank you Fran, Melinda, and Barbara. And to the four legged fur friends you brought along …. Stella, Hank and Boo. Deeply grateful for being invited with you ladies. Nature’s beauty is magnificent.

Sunset Walk with Dolphins While the Thunder Cracks in the Early Morning

August 18 2020

Sunset walk with Lillian. Last cloud photo looks like a dolphin.

August 25 2020

We had a cracking loud thunderstorm in the wee hours Monday morning. Woke me up with how loud, with bright lightening that lit the entire room. Woke Lillian on three different occasions, too. Thomas didn’t wake, but the cracking, booming sounds incorporated into his dream! It was wild!

So happy for it, though. As it cleared the smoke and I was able to go for a walk Monday morning and this morning.

August 27 2020

Yay for the smoke having cleared!! Went for a long walk this morning.

The Beauty of Spooner Lake With an Art Showing of Clouds and Rare Purple

July 12 2020

Amazing socially distanced hike around Spooner Lake, organized by Tahoe Herbivores. Walked a couple of miles, sat for lunch, and then another mile. Incredibly beautiful and peaceful. My first time here, so lots of photos.

July 16 2020

Cloud update. These are from yesterday afternoon. It seriously feels as if we’re at an art showing, with nature changing the art every few seconds.

July 16 2020

Spotted on the morning walk. I rarely see purple ones. Gorgeous!!!
