Weekend Walk_June 22

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences

I am sharing one of my sunrise shots from last week and some shots from our weekend walk along a creek not far from our house..It is just under a 2 mile drive to get to the creek parking area and the trail leads us to a different section of our lake. 


First, I will start my post with a shot of the sunrise over a local field.



For my Good Fence post I have a neighborhood farm, I pass by this farm with their beautiful white horse and a donkey everyday on the way to work..I thought it would make a great fence shot for Tex's Good Fence meme..


I can walk from the house to see this pretty horse, I think there are plenty of fences in this shot. The new fence was put up recently..


Now onto our walk, hubby and I were walking along the creek trail, I happened to see one eagle flying away and then I looked down and across the creek and there was another eagle eating a fish.. I think the reflection is cool. 


We watched the eagle eating the fish for a little while.  Then with the fish still clutched in its claws,  the eagle flew off down the creek with the fish.. Most likely taking the fish back to the nest..



We spooked a large group of Canada Geese when we walked up to the lake shore.. Some flew and some swam just to the other side.


We reached the lake, which was our stopping point for the day.  The sky was a pretty blue with some clouds here and there.  A pretty day for a walk.


A gorgeous sunset shot, thanks to my hubby!


I hope you enjoyed my post and photos from our weekend walk..
To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences


Thanks to Tex @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

Hi Eileen, beautiful shots of the eagle eating on the water's edge. Is that your [American]Bald Eagle? I love the sun/sky shot. I am about to join in the Good fences meme with Tex. I'm following her amazing blog already so want to join in this fun too. Have a great day. Jo

What a beautiful area you live in. The countryside is so pretty with the rolling hills (& horses!). And I find it interesting that your lakes are surrounded by deciduous trees as I'm so used to seeing pines surrounding the lakes we visit here. Beautiful sunrise & sunsets too. Enjoy your weekend.
