Toisnot Lake

Toisnot park and lake is not far from our house ~
so hubby and I got up early this morning,
stopped by Starbucks and then drove over to the lake.

It's a beautiful park for picnicking ~ or maybe just sitting under a big shade tree reading your favorite book. There are nature trails if you like, a playground for the kids, and fishing too.

I came to feed the ducks.

Oh, yes, they knew I had bread ~

even the ones in the lake.

Pretty ones and not so pretty ones.

They all had their fair share of bread, I thought, except for one little guy who scurried up the hill from the lake just as fast as he could, came right over to me, looked at me, and I had just thrown the last piece of bread away. Poor baby. Maybe I should have brought more bread. Maybe next time.

We enjoyed the morning by the lake, the company of the ducks, and a good cup of coffee.

A good way to start the day, I think.

When my kids were little we used to love to feed the ducks. You've inspired me to go feed them again, with or without the grandkids. Mimi

Looks like the ducks enjoyed your visit too Donna, lots of bread for them. Beautiful park.

Sounds like a perfect way to start the day. I used to take my daughter to feed ducks when she was little. We quit when they starting chasing us for more bread after we ran out. haha

Have a wonderful week.

Those ducks are a cute bunch of scavengers! :) Toisnot Lake looks like a very pretty place to visit Donna.
