City Views

Sunday afternoon we went walking around Victoria and Beacon Hill Park. It game me a great chance to take some photos of the beauty surrounding our home.

We started out seeing a few baby ducklings doing their own thing. It was so cute!

Sitting on the Fence. I still don't understand peacocks.
They are one funny bird!

We walked a little more until we reached the ocean and had this beautiful view.

I thought this shot of the lone runner was really neat.

Just sitting watching time go by.. Ah, it's so beautiful here in Victoria!

  2. Beautiful photos. My favorite is the first with the ducks. I would love to have an ocean so close. I loved living in South Carolina because of the water.

  5. Heh we went for a walk too. Wouldn't have minded swapping with you. That ocean looks great in the distance and so does the rest of Victoria.

  7. We played with some peacocks in Finland last week - they are funny birds indeed! Right when we were about to give up on them, they all decided to put their tails up for us. Gorgeous!

  10. An ocean view along with the mountains. All of that makes for some gorgeous pictures. Here in Georgia, which by the way Gainesville is about 35-40 miles northeast of Atlanta, we can have beautiful mountain views. Alas, no ocean, but that is about an 5-6 hour drive to the Atlantic.
