I hope you had a wonderful fourth of July weekend! We usually have a family
gathering to celebrate the fourth and our granddaughter Jessica’s birthday
but this year the family went in all different directions so Michael and I
took the opportunity to go our own little adventure!
We left last Saturday with boat in tow and headed to Potholes Reservoir north
of Pasco, WA to enjoy our fourth of July weekend. The sun was shining but
the winds never died so we gave up Monday morning and headed south...
Okay... are you ready for this? Well... we weren’t sure if we were or not...
but we took Abigail with us! Oh me oh my! Since we're planning some longer
trips in the days ahead we needed to know how she how she would fair. Let's
just say she spent a lot of time "down under"... not in Australia but under the
seat, under the blankets, under anywhere she could find! But at the end of
our days away... we're convinced she’ll make a fine traveling cat after all!
I checked off another one of my “58 Things” before we left Potholes Resevoir...
the sunsets there were absolutely stunning and filled my heart with such awe
of and appreciation for the God of the heavens and earth!
Isn't He the most incredible Painter of Color you've ever known!!
All the fireworks in the world could not compete with the brilliant iridescent
colors that lit up the sky for God’s personal fourth of July party...
and we were blessed to be invited!!
I loved seeing this black bird sitting in the very top of the tree... it was
as if he was posing for me... so much fun!
And I had never seen a pelican in real life before and you know how excited
I can get over new discoveries so can you imagine my glee at this moment?
Truly a little gift from the Lord!
Michael actually got to see one come down and swoop up a fish out of the
water... right near his boat... I probably would have been so excited I would
have fallen right out of the boat!
And then later in the day... two pelicans came to visit overhead and I was
astounded that I could get the camera to focus on them... thank You Lord!
You cannot see the black on the underside of their wings unless they fly!
Jeremiah was a bullfrog... okay... not sure this was Jeremiah but isn't this
little guy cute? Okay... he wasn't that little but since I had not seen one
before it was a treat... especially in this murky water.
Seagulls are always a delight...
and this was the view on the way home... exquisite!
Thank you so much again for allowing me to share our journey and the beauty
of the Lord wherever we are and wherever we go!
Tomorrow I'll share the artsy part of my trip... more fun and creativity!
