My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

A spectatular day on Klamath Lake

It was a very nice day yesterday,  so we decided to take  the boat out for the first time this year. This is Pelican Marina. (appropriatley named, as the Pelican migration begins here in April)

 As you can see  this up close & personal photo of the pelican, it is sitting sitting  on the rock as if he is King.



I was able to catch him as he was taking flight, and again in air.. They are huge beautiful birds. 







The snow covered  mountain in the photo is  seen as we head north on the Lake.

Further along the ride I spotted this Blad Eagle in a tree.. He was watching for a catch and as he spotted his prey off he went. I think I  was lucky to get this shot.


We really did have a Spectacular afternoon don't you think?

Some of the wonderful stuff the Klamath Basin has to offer!!! Boating, snow capped peaks and Bald Eagles.

I'm really waiting for the warmer weather to take hold so I can do some work in the yard. All the trees keeps me in the shade and a lot cooler than in town.

So beautiful! I have spent several family vacations in the K-Falls area as a child living on the west coast. I miss those scenes, but have grown to love the beauty of the Ozarks. Thank you for coming by my blog. I am off to read more of yours. ~Kelly
