Sunday in the Park

Today dawned as sunny as yesterday was cloudy.

A trip to Northmoreland Park is overdue. Just ask Tawny. Just ask Tawny's Fan Club who have been asking for Tawny-Park pictures.

Look at those geese! As we were there, more Canada geese came in. Love those honkers!

Tawny is not excited about sitting pretty. There are too many wonderful, fresh scents to discover and in which to indulge.

Three Mallard duck males are in this inlet. See them? If you click on the picture to enlarge it, the details really show. It was so soggy here. Water was seeping across the brick walkway. I tried to walk down to the water's edge and I succeeded;but, sank into three inches of boggy grass.

On the way back to the truck, Russ and Tawny posed for this shot. Leaves have dropped off 80% of the woodland vegetation, but it is still a lovely afternoon.

We just couldn't resist this lovely tree by the parking lot.

A few more photos are waiting to be shared later on, too!

despite his dignity, one can see the T-dog enjoys his walks to the max... perhaps you should make it a sunday 'thing' year round for him... and he poses so nicely...Rah-Rah-Rah for Tawny !!!

Beautiful pictures.

It's been raining in SW Michigan for the past 5 days and our autumn color is gradually falling to the ground to result in lots of work.

The signs of fall- trees changing, birds head south. I am sure there was much Tawny needed to check out and this will require several trips if the weather holds.

These trips are good for humans also.
