Monday Mimisms: I Love It When a Day SideQuacks

Somewhere between stopping to get a fruit yogurt with granola and visiting my dad on Sunday, I got derailed. One turn of my head down Route 66 and the car turned around on its own. Follow me.......




I found some rocks to walk on.

A park

A nature trail

There were ducks.
And picnickers.....
Dogs on leashes and owners with treats





Trees with beautiful curves


Branches looking vainly in the mirror






See those ducks in the middle of the branches below?
He's proposing.
I just know
it

Do you love me? he asked.
You and only you.

I nearly fell in while eavesdropping

Flowers begging to be picked

A few ducks and swan swam by
Mr. Mallard too.....The Camel tree spoke up a time or two

I ventured out on these....almost to the other side

I hid under dark and lovely limbs
Toes that don't belong to duckswalked on top of mirrored branches

and a girl in the water
