L is for LAW ENFORCEMENT
We were driving out to dinner the other night when we came up behind them -- Carlsbad's finest!
There they were, all spruced up to take part in the high school's Homecoming Parade. In the 40 years we have lived here I have nothing but the greatest admiration and pride in our Carlsbad Law Enforcement officers.
L is for LAKE
Here in our park we actually have two lakes, complete with waterfall and fountain. The HOA generally refer to them as ponds -- but how could they?!! A pond is something the cows drink out of. Our lakes are frequented by wildlife , blue water and...
Above are Mallards. There must be at least 100 if you count the ones in the creek also. Every evening some park resident comes to feed them and they gather together in a great mass beside the lake.
This is a Cormorant I believe, (sorry a little out of focus) but he must have lost his way as they are sea birds and the sea is about a half mile west. Or maybe he was waiting for his free dinner with the ducks!
We also have a resident blue heron. There were two this summer but I haven't seen the second one lately. I managed nicely to capture his reflection.
We are so blessed to have all this wild life, including, skunks, coyotes and rabbits, not to mention a variety of birds, along with our LAKES and creek.
