These first photos were taken yesterday - I awoke to the sound of Fog Horns and....Fog....over my home, across the street - everywhere.
Later though, it began to melt away, leaving only a *magic-cloud-like remnant* over the Bay itself...
|My Morning View|
|Atop the 300 Lyon Street Steps (which I try to walk up and down at least twice a week now) to help strengthen my leg. The Palace of Fine Arts is the domed building to the left.|
Down at the Palace, I discovered:
|I love this photo - although it not centered. - but I caught Mr. Egret swallowing a fish...|
|*Ducks (and Turtles) in a Row*! All enjoying the brief respite of sun and warmth.|
|About to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge. What? You can't see the Bridge? Trust me, it's there....|
The second group of photos, taken last week, are of *my* Swans at the Palace of Fine Arts. They are now four months old...and almost as large as their parents. (I finally spoke to one of the Groundskeepers and learned the parents' names: Blanche and Blue Boy). The grey one (my favourite....I just can't help it) is slowly beginning to lose his grey feathers and reveal snow-white ones underneath.
|Papa *Blue Boy* and one of the Cygnets|
|It's nap time!|
|Hello, it's Mr. Grey - aka - *Sir Galahad*!|
|"Enough photos....I need my *beauty sleep*! Can you see my White Feathers beginning to show?"|
This will have to do as my *Animal Wednesday* Post.... the next three days I'll be at rehearsals.... and Opening Night for *Rigoletto* is Thursday!
