Blue Sky Farm

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..

Birds of a feather...

It was a beautiful morning, near 70 degrees today, so Clay & I took the boat out on the lake. We are so lucky to have the lake so close. We half heartedly  fished for awhile but  none were interested in our bait..It was so pretty on the water &  I was more interested in these pelicans nesting in the rushes. As we approached, turned off the motor & drifted closer they decided we were clcose enough and one by one slipped into the water & swam in line away, Don't they look like boats in a harbor?


As we turned the boat around and headed in the other direction we came upon this Egret. Standing statue like in the rushes.
Thouroughly enjoyed our day,  we returned home with some sun- dried faces but well worth the adventure..I forgot the sunscreen... but I think We have finally received Mother Natures Gift of Spring...

Our family always delighted in seeing the pelicans whenever we visited our relatives in K.Falls!They are amazing, aren't they? Is this Klamath Lake, or near Tule Lake?

Hey Girl! Looks like a fun day for sure! I just might have to make a trip down to see those white pelicans. I saw a few in ND but as I was driving I only got a glimpse. Are they there all summer long or do they leave after their babies grow up? Hummmmmmm - long weekend road trip????
