A Great Way to Start The Day In Helena AL!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage South

My favorite way to start my day is a three mile walk around the lake at Joe Tucker Park in Helena.  I enjoy the exercise but I particularly enjoy the entertainment provided by the local wildlife!  Here are a few photos.......

Helena was voted by CNN Money Magazine as one of the Top 100 Best Places To Live in 2007.

Ducks in Helena AL

 

 

This is a family of ducks that I have been watching since the little ones were just little fuzzy things.  By the time I took this picture they had grown quite a bit.  They all look like their mom now, I can't tell them apart, but they still do everything as a family.

 TOO CUTE!

 

 

Canada Geese in Helena AL

 

 

There are LOTS of Canada Geese!  They are fun to watch as they fly in and land on the water.  There is one Daddy Goose, and there he is in the center of this photo although it's hard to tell much about him with his backside to the camera.  He thinks he's in charge and keeps an eye on all the lady geese.  They all chose to ignore me this morning.

 

 

 

Catfish in Helena AL

 

 

 

Now this is something I don't see everyday!  It's not unusual for there to be one or two people sitting by the lake with a fishing pole.  I had no idea there was anything like this out there!  This big catfish got a lot of attention that morning!

Ann,

Love the photos.  Kudos to you for calling the geese by their rightful name.  Most have degenerated into calling them "Canadian Geese".  I read your latest post before commenting here, and I imagine that it was this family of ducks that lost one of the little ones.  Thanks for blogging.

Thanks for welcoming be to AR! I am sure I will enjoy the networking & have already enjoyed your blog! You are a girl after my own heart with your heart/house design on your page as I do love hearts!  I grew up on a lake in NE & know what you mean about a great way to start off your day.  Nothing quite like the tranquilty that comes from a beautiful lake. We hope to move to CO soon and already found a great lake there. If you have any AZ contacts or know of anyone looking for a home, think of my house MLS# 2971243 and thanks for your time! Best of luck:)
