Photo Tour of Byrd Park's Fountain Lake in Richmond Virginia

Sometimes it's just fun to observe what beauty that exists around us.  Yesterday, my dog Nathan and I walked around Fountain Lake, which is located in Byrd Park and near my Richmond Virginia home.  It was a good day for both of us to get a little exercise and observe the colors of the birds and sky.

 

Other people also were outside walking.  Although it probably was still in the upper 30's, the temperature was around 20 degrees warmer than it had been just a couple days earlier.  It was a welcome relief for me not having to wear leather gloves again while outside!

 

Plus it was interesting to see how seagulls and ducks interacted.  It looked like some of the birds took advantage of the nicer weather to do some practice flights.  It also looked like several of the younger birds were getting some flight lessons from their elders.  I'm sure the birds also were happy to have some warmer temperatures to enjoy for a while!

Andrew, nice of you to share your walk. Seems strange with all this frigidly cold weather, to hear that parts of Fountain Lake is thawing. Little Nathan is so cute. Is that his Christmas finery he is wearing?

Thanks for the feedback from both of you!  Nathan is wearing a new winter non-holiday sweater because of a recent growth spurt after he was supposed to be full grown about a year ago!

Andrew, I am longing to be outside again but with temps in the single digits again today that is not going to happen. However your tour of the lake was a breath of fresh air.

Joan & Debbie,

Warmer temperatures will help make being outside much easier.  Thank goodness it's sunny today!
