Two 5K Walks Today - Sunday, Dec. 29

We set out on our first 5K walk around 9:45 a.m. and finished about an hour later. Our walk was along the Museum Reach of the Riverwalk up to Pearl Brewery.

Could be a mix of wild and domestic duck.
 The two ducks above were bobbing their heads up and down as they circled each other.

When we finished our RiverWalk, we headed back to the 5er. Bob went to work and I decided to do another 5K Volksmarch at Mitchell Lake. Off we went on our separate journeys.

Today at Mitchell Lake, the long-eared owl was not visible. A father and daughter came into the Visitor Center excitedly talking about the bobcat they saw. They told me where they saw it and I walked there, but didn't see the bobcat.

Here are today's finds at Mitchell Lake...

Great egrets and little blue heron, American coot
Top: Hooded merganser
Top bird: red-breasted merganser

As usual, I had an enjoyable and relaxing walk. Yesterday, I joined the Mitchell Lake Audubon Society.

Bob worked until 5:30 then picked up a few items at Costco on his way home. We watched 60 Minutes, then Bob watched sports for the rest of the evening while I blogged.

We ran out of propane tonight and it's getting downright cold in here. At least we have an electric heater in the bedroom to keep us toasty. We have a partial tank of propane that Bob will put in the 5er in the morning. I'll get our two tanks filled tomorrow. It sure has been cold. Brr.

Here's another picture of two cozy cats.

  1. What an amazing variety of ducks you saw. Isn't a 5K 3.2 miles? That means you walked nearly 6.5 miles today. Way to go!
