More of "the day in the park"

The park I mentioned last week is more than the "land of geese". When we stood on the bridge, we noticed a turtle which occasionally stuck his head out of the water, treading water with his front feet to stay afloat. (Too far away for a photo) 

A "rock garden"? We're not sure. 

Shadows across a gazebo. 

View across the water. 

More shadows in another gazebo. The "gong-like" item at the far end is a chunk of an enormous tree trunk. Poignant.... 

The entrance -- and exit -- of the park.

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.
