Gratitude Monday -- A Good Trip For The Soul


We've gotten out and about several times in the past few weeks. I am grateful for that. It's good to use the time when you have it.
We've usually gone west into the mountains, but on Saturday we went east, to the prairie.
It was a wonderful change. It had been years since we were out that way and it is good for the soul to see the open spaces.
We went to Gooseberry Lake Provincial Park north of Consort and looked around.
It was peaceful, and beautiful and surprisingly quiet given there was a rodeo going on across the road.
I took plenty of photos, mostly of the American avocets along the lakeshore.
It was a long day, but a good one. And for it I am grateful.

So envious of the variety of habitat that you have in driving distance.

I love to see birds feeding. (Gooseberry Lake? Are there actual gooseberries?)

Kimberley, it was.

Mary Anne, apparently not. They are not native to here and if there are any, then someone deliberately put them there.

A similar scene to what we would see at a lake here -- pretty birds among the reeds.
