Bellevue Downtown Park   3 comments

While waiting for my glasses to have the lenses changed, I decided to check out the Bellevue Downtown Park.  What a great park right in the middle of downtown Bellevue, Washington.  It is such a peaceful place in the middle of very busy metropolitan city.  Here are some shots from exploring the park today…

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday!

ABC Wednesday – Z   12 comments

Z is for… Zoology: the animal life of a particular region

Okay, I know I am pushing it with this one this week!

These are the animals I encountered this weekend around my home (region) in Washington: Top row: blue heron, butterfly and turtle.  Second row: bird of some sort,  duck, and robin with a blueberry in his beak.  Third Row: raccoons in my backyard, dragonfly and a shy puppy (Lulu) who refused to look at my camera!

I am so looking forward to the next round of ABC Wednesday!

Now head on over to Mrs. Nesbitt’s for more ABC Wednesday!

Here is a quick photo highlight. I am sure my sister Ellen will get into more detail soon. I have to catch a plane…
