Next to our home runs a private road. Part of it has gravel, but the majority of it is just a mix of rocks, dirt, and plants. The trees grow over it, so most of the way is shaded. The wildflowers are blooming next to it. After about a ten or fifteen minute walk down this road, you reach the creek.
When you first reach the creek, you walk out under the open sky into full sun. On the right the creek is shallow and shaded with tall trees arching over it, giving the water underneath a dappled look. On the left there are lots of rocks, with the creek getting narrower and deeper, with trees hanging over it from the farther bank.
We walked down to the creek this past Sunday. I took my camera (surprise, surprise). We also brought our black lab Shadow, who loves to swim. Noah and Meiling played fetch with her, and Dad threw the ball occasionally. I took pictures of the whole thing.
Here are some of the photos. I was quite unhappy as there were all these lovely wildflowers and I hadn’t brought my macro lens, since I was trying to reduce baggage. 🙂
The road to the creek
This looks fairytale-like to me
To the right
I love water, ripples…
…and sun sparkles!
Throwing the ball for the dog
Playing in the water
I found this plant interesting

When you get wet, you have to shake all that water off.
Sometimes your lips look weird.
But it always feels good
This is going to be a new tradition – a lens cap picture wherever I go
More dog shaking off pictures – sorry, they’re just so fun
That feels good.
Just lovin’ those yellow boots
Foot pictures…also very fun
Flowers without a macro lens
I like how this one turned out
Where we took a little stroll – an even older road
So what did you do for Resurrection Sunday? We didn’t do a whole lot. Since some of us have been sick, we stayed home from church so not to infect everyone. Nothing to fancy – we went to the creek, read Bible, played badminton, and had dinner. Do you have a Resurrection Sunday tradition?
