Take a walk with me

Yesterday I went on a walkabout at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge.

The refuge is an area of salt and freshwater marshes that is home to a gazillion species of birds. Some of which I saw on the 5.5 mile loop trail:

I saw more than just ducks - such as herons and swallows - but it turns out that I am completely inept at using my camera and all the pictures I thought that I had shot of birds in flight somehow disappeared...
Regardless, it was a beautiful NW misty day. Don't you just love the quality of light out on yonder barns?

Many an Olympia area artist have painted those barns.
I just love the marshes themselves.

Lovely. Nothing like a nice long walk to feel recharged. The Nisqually refuge is one of my favorite places. Thanks for letting me share it with you.

Aw, this was one of the places left on our list of things to see before we moved that we didn't get a chance to see. But it's good to see your pictures at least!
