We’re enjoying a snowday from home today. Snow on the beach is such a rarity on the Oregon Coast and I got to kinda see it once…at midnight…from a distance…lit by my camera flash…see here: Snow on Tillicum Beach
Today I’m enjoying it from up the Alsea River.
We had plans for going to Newport to volunteer at the Family History Center and then do our weekly grocery shopping. But caution prevails today.
Some don’t mind travelling on snow days but the duck route isn’t any different than any other day on the river.
Most of the snow fell before the tide started going out this morning.
Salmonberries first gathered weeds from the high river last month and now snow.
My first thought about “community” was church because wherever we travel to workamp, we feel so at home when we attend church.
Ordinances are the same, lessons are the same, the spirit is the same. But I don’t have a current photo and it’s a “photo challenge”. Soooo….
These ducks live in a community on Eckman Lake, near Waldport, Oregon.
There were at least 4 or 5 different kinds of ducks that we could identify on this icy day.
By working together, they keep the ice from freezing over the whole lake.
There were smaller groups in different places and they’d fly or walk from one place to another. It reminded me of going to Crystal Hot Springs, Utah, in the winter 🙂 We’d walk quickly from the dressing room to the hot pool.
This duck seemed to be a loner. But then suddenly he joined the group. He decided to go see what all the fuss was about.
