Tell Me a Story: March 2016

Tell me a Story is live once again and on this particular day I attempted to walk the entire route of the wetlands.  First stop is the rookery and the Woodstorks have moved back in again and taken over.  Late winter is mating season and the Woodstorks are doing their mating dance and building nests. And yes, one or two little ones have already…

Tell me a Story: January 2017

Two months ago I shared an encounter with a Cormorant.  This month I had a noisy encounter with two Egyptian Geese.  They were definitely engaged in the activities unlike the Cormorant who just gave me a lazy look.   Clearly used to people, and possibly used to being fed, these Egyptian Geese wandered up to the railings, made a few sqawks and then flew…

Tell me a Story: December 2016

It’s December, a few days before Christmas and Tell me a Story is due to go live on New Years Eve.  I am not sure if we are going pull off the blog circle but I want to do my best to try. This year has not been easy and the foot surgery recovery is still on-going.  The foot still hurts and swells but…

Tell me a Story: November 2016

Tell me a Story is live and I happened to take another walk.  It would be defined as a short walk in the scheme of the length of the wetlands but honestly it was a long walk for me.  Especially since there was nothing much happening in the wetlands.  Aside from the two Comorant hanging out on the boardwalk railing. The weather was cool…

Tell me a story: October 2016

It is now end October and I am 3 months post surgery, and recovery is taking a lot longer than I expected. However, I am pleased to say that I managed to get a shoe on last week, even though it is far wider than I would normally have it, and I still cannot lace it up, but it is on, and feels relatively…

Tell me a Story: September 2016

We finally arrived in Leavensworth and day 1 is where my Tell me a Story Blog is going to happen.  The day was overcast and drizzly as we arrived.  Fortunately our drive from the Orcas Islands to Leavensworth had been pretty good.  The air was cold and we quickly bundled up.  After booking into the motel we decided to head out while the rain was…

Tell me a Story: August 2016

Tell me a Story: July 2016

By the time this blog rolls around, I will be, post foot surgery, bed bound and probably not quite with it.  But I am hoping that I will be able to get this linked to the other bloggers in the group.  In the past few months we have blogged to a quote.  For the next two months we have left it open. The surgery I…

Tell me a story: June 2016

Tell me a Story is live and this month the quote is from Deepak Chopra: “To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions”  Solitude for me often comes when we…

Tell me a story: May 2016

Tell me a Story is live.  Each month we are given a quote to base our photographs on .  The quote for May is: “Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in this life has a purpose.” ~ Elizabeth Kubler Ross. One of the best places for me to silence myself is to take a walk in the…
