The Lakes.

1 Peter 3:3-4Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.


It was extremely beautiful outside yesterday!! I decided to call up a friend to go for a walk around the lake. The walk turned into a 3 1/2 hour journey around all three lakes, calhoun, harriett and lake of the isles.

The weather was perfect and I enjoyed taking pictures and watching critters in the water and laughing. Some pretty funny things happen walking around the lakes of uptown.

Lots of time for Interesting conversations, fun people watching and getting lost is still somthing I enjoy. Yesterday  we walked forever trying to find the rose garden I had spoke so highly of. When we finally  got there after about a half hour later we found it was all dead. I guess I wasn't thinking that through very well. but- it was fun!


basically you get the gist of what we saw there.... Hardly ANY COLOR

I had to share some of my pictures . I love photography.. LOVE it!!! It makes things more exciting and fun to look back at. I would call myself a visual person. I need to see things to make things more clear. Visual pictures also make things easier to remember.

I think I could probobly find beauty in just about every place I go. That's why I love going  to new places and seeing new things. I will say though- I think Minnesota is pretty beautiful. Here are some of my critter pictures.



Here are a few more from the walk.


I did get slightly burned.. my skin just can't handle the suns rays for too long. But it's ok -it was worth it. I got really good sleep last night.

Today I have lots of homework to finish up my semester.
