It has been a long time since I have had the time, energy or ability to write in this blog.
I had spinal surgery in April and am still trudging the long road of recovery, but at least I am up and about and almost out of pain.
My recovery has been a challenge for Miss Lucy as I was unable to hold her leash for a long time which meant that I could not take her for a walk. She and I missed that a great deal.
Now that I am able to get out and do more I have started taking her to Deer Lake again and that means that I can also resume my passion for taking pictures.
Early Monday morning, despite the drizzle, she and I headed down the hill to the lake and encountered a lovely Blue Heron perched on the map sign.
However, later in the day Fred and I went to the Stanley Park seawall for a walk as the day had begun to be sunny and warm. There we encountered an explosion of Blue herons. Everywhere you turned there were herons flying, feeding and sunning themselves.
I am now hoping that the nests that my fellow walking friend saw are going to produce lots of babies that I will be able to photograph almost in my back yard!
I took lots of photos that day and they can be seen by clicking here Flickr to take you to my flickr page
