~Peace Be With You~

We spent some time at Sholom Park on Friday afternoon and came away with lots of memories and photos to share.

We saw 4 Great Blue Herons and 2 nests.

One of the herons flew in to feed the babies in one nest and that was exciting to see!

We saw a variety of animals and birds and walked around enjoying the sunshine and warm temps.

Sholom is a place to find calm and peace….a beautiful spot to pause and count your blessings.

Wow you really do live in such a natural setting. I always think of Florida and Disneyworld but it looks to wide open and rural where you live. Have a blessed Easter. Love your header too!

We had blue herons on our pond in Connecticut; I've only seen a couple out here. I love the water and find a lot of peace in just staring at its beauty. My dad was drawn to it and why he made the navy his career; must have picked up that gene:-D Blessed Easter to you, Sis, XOXO
