Spring Walk

The sun is finally shining and it's actually over 70 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside! After a morning spent in the studio, I could not resist taking a walk along the river. I was very glad that I'd brought my camera when I spied this heron patiently stalking something good to eat.

It's amazing how uplifting such a day as this can be after such a gray and soggy stretch. And energizing. I love the rain, but I must admit to feeling a bit waterlogged lately. I feel a renewed excitement toward my painting, a breaking out of late winter inertia.

I feel the same ... we've had a bit of Spring here in Wales and it seems to make everyone feel happier and more energised.

Nice walk. Glad I could leave the city for a few minutes and come along!

flyinamber: Thank you for your comments! I love those herons. It's good to hear I'm not the only one who feels like hibernating in the winter.

Peter: Ain't that the truth! Sounds like Wales and Seattle have very similar climates.

Seth: Thank you for joining me on such a lovely day. :)
