Waterfront at Walker, Minnesota

Recently we had lunch at the waterfront in Walker, Minnesota. It was fun to watch the sailboats zip back and forth. Chance loved watching the Seagulls. I was taking some photographs for a photography challenge, so while Far Guy walked Chance I got some time to just be one with the scenery. We weren’t the only people that found this tucked away spot to picnic and watch the water, a really elderly couple pulled in and proceeded to recline their seats and have an afternoon nap. It didn’t take long for them to doze off and begin to snore they must have been pretty tired. Oh yes I was tempted to take a photograph..but I didn’t.

The Culver’s Root (the white flower) was in full bloom as was the Fireweed.

Fireweed is also called Epilobium angustifolium, it has a spike type flower.  It is a native plant, that is often found in areas that have had forest fires. It often grows in large patches. I was very happy to find this shore-land restoration planting in full bloom:)

    I thought for sure you would take a pic of the couple sleeping and then ask them when they woke up. Looks like a great place for a picnic.
