Today I went for a walk at Vines Park. Here's a picture of the Whimsical Garden:
Shortly after I took the picture above, half a dozen Canada geese flew noisily in and landed on the lake:
Today, Gabriel and I went on a tame adventure, first going to the historic Wynne-Russell House for their holiday open house, and then to nearby old-town Lilburn to look around for a while at Antiques in Old Town. Here are some of the pictures I took on our outing:

and waddle away when it is clear
the containers are empty.
I doubt they think about us
at all when we are not there.
