May Day on the Island
I was up early this morning to drive out to Sauvie Island. I wasn't disappointed.
Deuce (my chocolate lab) and I met up with Brenda at about 8:30 at Steelman Lake. The sky has been intensely blue the last few days, and coupled with the completely lush spring foliage, well, it was almost too much to take in.
I felt like I was on a movie set. The lake is bordered by a gorgeous grassy field that grows all the way to the waterline. The trees are wearing most of their leaves, and the field grass is thigh high and beginning to bloom. When Deuce ran through the field he made the pollen puff up off the grass, leaving little trails of "smoke".
The weather forecast is looking good, so I'm planning on getting out again tomorrow to soak up more of this perfect weather. And paint!
