In the land of geese

On this beautiful spring day, we went to one of the local parks -- one that is very popular for Canadian geese or branta canadensis, as biologists would say.

This one seems to be floating in a watercolor painting.

Taking a bath? Having a disagreement? Not sure....

Silent and watching, right by the main footpath.

I'll post more photos from this park soon.

Fishing, yes. Swimming, no. (Never mind that it was 46 degrees F [7.7 C] with a brisk wind that day).

Urban planning at work (Be sure to enlarge the photo)

There's a sign in the distance that provides directions and information about this new city park. But I thought you'd enjoy the view of the foothills instead.

More of Downtown

Art installation on a wall of Boise City Hall. The old building in the center is a photo of the old City Hall.

Painted brick sign for an import store.

Great place to hang out and people-watch. Eclectic.

"Hopper-esque" view. Check out this.

More public art.

Multicultural dining


This originally was a fire station. Now it's home to The Melting Pot fondue restaurant.

Looking behind the scenes.

More to come later....

Vacation getaway?

Looking to get away from it all? Here's a taste of the Wild West. But you'll have to provide your own horse.

It does come with a bridge so you don't have to ford the creek.

Couch surfing at its finest. Located just a few yards from the cabin, this economy package is for those who like to sleep under the stars.

Checking out the magazines...

Looks like Life thought it scored with Paul -- but Newsweek got Jesus!
(As observed while waiting in a check-out line.)

I've been waaay too busy lately -- will make another post soon.

Fowl Play

It was sooo cold that...
Actually these are faux swans. They are supposed to frighten the geese away from the pond.

And you can see how well that works....

Cranky duck?

Look closely. Is he giving the "evil eye"?

Outta here!
