Sunshine On My Shoulder Makes Me :)

Every so often a miracle occurs here in the Pacific NW.
The gray, drippy and very dreary winter skies give way to blue ones
(or at least partially blue ones)
Aimee, sick or not,
escapes to one of the many roads which -- sooner or later -- leads her to a wetland area.

You see one of the TWO things Aimee likes LOVES about winter are the numerous wetlands
and their amazing inhabitants
(the other, as you may already know, is snow, snow and more snow)!
Today Farmer Boy and I set off to explore a wetland I had just learned about
and another that we had driven by, but not stopped at before.
A tiny chipmunk we saw.
Perhaps his name is Alvin?
"My" beloved geese.
A mourning dove?
A hawk who likes heights better than yours truly.
A lovely snow white egret.
Guess who?

One of the major challenges was actually being able to get there...
we got turned back twice when trying to visit one of the areas I wanted to explore.
Of course, sometimes one HAS to get out even if the skies aren't blue
and we've done a little of that too. Those photos another time.
