Here Comes the Sun

Last Saturday we got up early to go walking at Lake Paden - the sun was out - the skies were almost cloudless - it was a gorgeous day.  The day before we had walked a mile - it is nothing for Don to walk a mile - or even three - but since my back surgery it has been hard for me to get any distance.  I still use the trekking poles - so much better than a walker.  My arms have a more natural  movement and walking is so much more pleasant.  We discovered that there were already two events going on at the park at the lake - so parking was scarce.  There was a dog event of some kind, and a half marathon.

We found a parking space and set off down the trail - it goes clear around the lake - 3.6 miles - we weren't aiming that high - but hoping for another mile.

Kath - at You'll Shoot Your Eye Out - has given us a challenge - a song to interpret with photos.  This week's song is "Here Comes the Sun" - so here is our sun!

The sunlight was bright in the early morning

This is one of our favorite coves - we've had many picnics here

Early morning fishing

Fairies dancing on the lake

Starting up the hill 
I made it to half a mile - which still was good - and the beautiful morning was an added bonus.

These are gorgeous! I especially love the first one. You've captured such lovely blues. That lake looks like a very peaceful and calming place to be. I'm glad you were able to get a walk in.

A half a mile is great! I'm glad you had such a gorgeous day, and your pics are marvelous. So sparkly and fun!

Good for you! Glad the weather's agreeing with your walking again. It certainly makes for a better time of it. Keep up the good work(out)!

Love how that water sparkles in the sunlight, I will now always think "fairies" when I see something similar. Thanks for participating in Song-ography :)
