Sunday, Nature Calls. Duo Caught Bathing in Lacamas Creek.

Sunday, Nature Calls. Duo Caught Bathing in Lacamas Creek.

Today is Sunday, March 16th, 2014.  Most of the area runners were in Portland this morning for the annual Shamrock Run. It’s one of the biggest runs on the West Coast, and this runner has always enjoyed the event for fitness, and as a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. However, this morning, I decided to forego the crowds ( 35,000 participants) and enjoy the quiet of my favorite Camas, WA running trail.

The trees and shrubs are beginning to spout tender green buds and a few of the wildflowers are blooming too. A light rain didn’t dampen my spirits as I ran the rocky trail that winds through trees, and along Lacamas Creek and Lacamas Lake. As I crossed one, of several bridges, I spotted this couple enjoying a morning bath. You’d think I’d be sensitive enough to give them a private moment. Instead, I grabbed my iPhone and shot a quick little video. I can’t resist when nature calls.

Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

I sense you are an "off the beaten track" sort of person! Love the way you set it to music...and with the bird calls...very...relaxing.

Tom - I spent a number of years in the spotlight when I was a radio/news personality in Portland. Way too much time getting attention...

I savor and appreciate my quiet time, and privacy. And nature is my muse - and gives me that much needed centering.

That is so sweet, I love watching ducks do that.  We leave a water bowl out for the cats, and on occasion, when they are in the littlest of birds jump in and take a bath...It is so cute.  Thanks for the smile. A

You're welcome Alexandra. I just had to stop for a minute and take time to watch this Goose couple enjoying the morning quiet together.

Ah.... I needed that moment in my life to be in touch with nature. You're more than a REALTOR and a friend, you're the doctor who knows exactly what people need in any given moment.

Nature is a prescription for good health!

Thank you Debb!

Debb, we are absolutely BLESSED to have those moments, aren't we? I stopped yesterday on my way to my newest almost-sold-property, to take pictures of our Canada Geese stragglers who were enjoying the last vestiges of their Fishhawk Lake part of the journey northward. 

I enjoyed your description of the run and of course, the paparazzi moment! (And I don't think you'll be chastised for putting their video on the worldwide web).

Hi Debb --- how did I know(or at least suspect) that you are a nature voyeur?   Nicely captured.
