stepping outside

black and white cat

I am still waiting for the day I can adopt some cats and dogs (or they adopt me). In the meantime, I enjoy visiting with the cats and dogs I meet in my day. The neighborhood cat above likes sunning himself on high places.

Last week I rode my bicycle to my favorite local, forest park and went for a long hike. Deep in the forest sits this erratic rock. I love this huge boulder named Waterman Rock. It's called an erratic rock because it made its way here by glacial movement, many miles from its origin, where it broke off.

It's about the height of a two story house. I remember the first time I came upon it and how magical the entire scene felt. Getting outdoors warms my heart every time!

Your neighbor cat is pretty, Juanna. Does it wear a collar? I like the rock also. In my earlier days I would try claiming it.

That's what all cats love ! Sitting high and overlooking everything !

THe lower right half of the rock looks like a face so the green bush above it looks like hair. This photo would be a wonderful picture (photo or illustration) for a storybook about Waterman Rock telling how he came to be there.

warm heart Wed., that is a lovely theme.
amazing to consider how far this rock has traveled and that you know this when you see you have bears in your forest? we are in that season where i need to consider bears when i walk. no sign of them yet.

VERY much I hope your cat & dog dreams come true, Juana!! I can't imagine a house without a kitty! ;) MAGICAL--that is the best work to describe your erratic rock and it's surroundings... It's like something from a fairy tale... Happy Spring Days ((HUGS))

Your photography in this post is so dreamlike and simple.

I love how you shared a dream and a place that warms your heart.

This definitely warmed my heart for week 19.
