During a morning walk by the Columbia River it was so lovely and peaceful I decided to sit on a bench for a bit and just soak it all in. Not too long after, a pheasant strolled by. How I wish I had a better camera at that moment than my phone, but nonetheless I wanted to share it with you. Magical!
While I walk by the Columbia River in the mornings, I see a lot of different wildlife. Usually it’s birds – a wide variety in fact. However, sometimes I see adorable rabbits. Every single time I see one I squeal BUNNY! . … Because I’m five when I see a rabbit.
During a recent walk by the Columbia River before work I spotted a heron on a rock, head moving to and fro, looking for breakfast. Though I wish I had my camera with large lens, he was still nicely silhouetted against the river. You will want to click to get the large version of these photos or he will just be a dot on your screen…
Every weekday when I am working from my office I try to get there early and spend my first hour walking. In fact when I don’t do this I find my day doesn’t go as well. That early walk is a great time for my brain to wander and for me to simply enjoy the scenery. It helps me keep everything in perspective, I think. This may be true in part because I have the privilege of walking by the Columbia River at sunrise, and it is a glorious sight.
