Downtown Christmas lights

Annual topic which I did a few times before... here, and here for instance, so today will add just a few

Not exactly Christmas illumination, but got this one on my way back to the car and though it would be a worthy ending to the day.

Centennial Square fountain and Ferris wheel

Illumination is up (about 1 month before Christmas but who is counting)

Seagull decided to be a part of the decor

Family life of Great Blue Herons

There is a colony of the Great Blue Herons in the park in middle of the downtown; there are also a lot of them along the shores. I posted some of the photos of the earlier (for instance this and this). They are amazingly fascinating birds, especially during nest building season when the shots below were taken.

Carrying building blocks home

Honey, where are you?

Ah, there you are!

Gracious landing

I always wanted to take ballet lessons...

Yup, ballet!
