It was a beautiful spring day when I took these photos.
We were in Great Smoky Mountains National Park when we came across this beautiful little stream.
When I caught up to them, my husband was smiling and George was doing this.
And staring at this.
This Canada goose was all by himself, seemingly enjoying the warmth of the spring day and getting his feet wet. Although they’re herbivores, a Canada goose will sometimes eat insects and fish. Perhaps we had interrupted his lunch.
George continues to do the stare-down, border collie style.
That bird isn’t going anywhere.
The sound of the water rushing by was loud and the waves were like mini-rapids.
Eventually, we left the goose to his own devices and traveled downstream a bit, to a quieter place. You can still see the waterfall in the center of the photo.
Much quieter down here.
I love how the water has made an interesting shelf along the shoreline in this peaceful little spot on a beautiful spring afternoon.

I didn’t have any fresh photos for today’s post, so I did what I often do, and delved into my files only to find these pictures that I’d completely forgotten to share with you. They were taken last April, over Easter Break, when my husband and I visited Great Smoky Mountains National Park on our way to the Gulf Coast.
Thanks to all who answered the question on their signature dish (or lack thereof!) for the Thanksgiving meal. I always enjoy reading your answers. Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
