Local Lake


Daily walk around the lake,

Mindset changed instantly.

Worry free ducks floating,

Soft birds’ chirping;

Calm water drifting,

Gentle light reflecting.

A place to strengthen the body,

Refresh the mind, renew the energy.

What a delight to have

Such a lake, locally!

  1. Gorgeous pictures. I love the white duck. I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen it but it’s a great old movie it’s called ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth, but it’s the old one. Probably out in the 1960’s when colour was relatively newer. Anyways, their guide through the mountains and down to the earths center, has a pet duck named Gertrude and Gertrude steals the show to some degree. Have a great Sunday!

  2. Beautiful pictures. Water does wonderful things to the soul. I have a couple backyard ponds. Nothing like a summer evening with a chorus of frogs and toads. But I’ll be heading for mountains soon, and have to find new lakes and rivers instead.
