A Walk in the Park


Just for a change of scenery, I took Cooper to a park that is fairly close to my house and has a pretty river that runs through it. Even though the snow has melted for the time being, and there is not much green to speak of, the river still looked pretty and we enjoyed walking along its banks.

There were plenty of friendly ducks for Cooper to notice. She doesn't bark at or try to bother them, but is enthralled by their quacking.

It was a sunny, but cold day and I love this photo of the rays of the sun breaking through the shadows.

We were able to get very near the water's edge in some areas and see the ducks up close and personal. The water looked clear, but cold, with traces of ice along the edges.

Cooper loved all the new sights and when I tried to take her photo, she was keeping her eyes on the ducks, rather than posing for the camera :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!


Linking with No Winter Whining



  1. I love this post...thanks for taking me along with you on your walk. Ironically, my post this morning was also about places I walk while here in Florida. Not this morning though - we are having gale force winds! Good day to stare at the ocean and read blogs!!

  2. Gorgeous place to walk--and well-photographed, too!

  3. Cooper's portrait is beautiful, even if she wasn't looking at the camera!

  4. Don't blame Cooper a bit, I would have been watching the ducks as well!

  5. So pretty. Cooper is adorable! She's so sweet!

  6. What a lovely place for a walk! Love the reflections in the first photo.
    Cooper as as cute as can be.

  7. Cooper is so cute ~ Great shots of a beautiful part ~ what a delightful place ~

  8. Love that last picture of Cooper ignoring the camera and watching the ducks:) Looks like a great day for a walk in the park! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

  9. Hello Vicki... so nice to meet you! Thanks for visiting my blog and joining in on our "no winter whining" meme... Cooper looks like a spaniel cross I used to have, brought back memories of her as soon as I saw this photo... love the pictures of the open water, it will be long time before we see open water here! Cheers~

  10. You are lucky you can walk in such a beautiful place in winter and not have to trudge through deep snow. It's a beautiful park. Visiting from No More Winter Whining. Have a great day. Blessings, Pamela
