Stanley Park is but a step from our door, and we regularly go for walks around this little lake that's on the way to the beach. There's tons of wildlife and babies there right now, and they're all out and about. This is the scene: Snuggly baby goslings. =) Goslings? I think that's the name for baby geese....Anyways, they look so cuddly! The mummy geese, however, are super defensive and always ready to chase you away if you get too close. Scary!! Don't know how Z got these close-ups..lol....=)
There are a lot of swans there year-round, and there were a few nests...but no babies yet. We found what seems to be the only nest full of eggs the other day just off the pathway so we'll have to watch it and see if we can see them hatching when its time...=)
There are also snuggly little ducklings swimming behind in packs of 8 with their parents....so cute!! They're super fast in the water, zipping around like crazy....he he...and when they're not swimming or jumping up onto rocks, they sleep snuggled together...aww...
And the turtles hopped up onto rocks and logs to soak in the sun - we hadn't even seen turtles at the lake ever, so that was cool! You can see them swimming, too..they just poke their heads out...so funny!And we saw this crane hunt and catch a fish or two..so very cool. See the turtle on the log behind him?
Anyways, I'm out...back to work. Or back to waiting for work to come in, wishing I was at home working. The animation project is seeming further and further from being done, even as I stay up til the wee morning hours...there's always a point where it gets boring and feels like it will never get done, and I was there last night. Feeling totally unproductive and like its impossible to finish right now..but I know it'll pass! It's just frustrating...not to mention I keep getting lovely stuffs in the mail that I want to make stuff with and I can't!! And one starts to feel lumpy and gross after eating and sitting on ones bum in a chair at a computer literally all day long wishing they had time to go for a run. Argh. Only a week, only a week. At least there's hot chocolate to get me through the day. I'm hankering for piles of real chocolate.
Annnd we just realized that our big impromptu martini and art gallery date on Friday was actually our 6-month wedding anniversary...he he...how cool is that?? We've been married for 6 months already! Duude...=) Soo cool. Happy weekend, everybody!
