Reflecting Pond

The kids are off from school for winter break and so begins our quest for fun things to do each day.  We began with a scenic drive to our “treat” library.

I stopped at this lake which was exceptionally still and foggy to take some pictures while the kids played for a bit.

I only noticed the small feather in this shot after I downloaded.  I love it!

Here is a video I took of some pine tree ripples created by my kids throwing rocks, shells, and sticks into an otherwise still pond (with intro to “Answer to the Weeping Willow” by The Carter Family).

I’m hoping this calm moment/mini-activity sets the tone for a really great vacation week!

  1. Ann, I love this post. I love all your posts but especially am fond of you in search of peaceful nature. I love that you are encouraging your kids to find happiness and tranquility that way instead of hours in front of the TV. You should publish a book of nature photography! I would so buy it!

  2. ABSOLUTELY LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THE REFLECTING POND VIDEO, MAGICAL, MUSIC IN ITSELF, “VISUAL” MUSIC, AN D THE OTHER PHOTOS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THAT
