Flowing Creek

“Water, air, and cleanness are the chief articles in my pharmacy.”

- Napoleon Bonaparte (French General, Politician and Emperor (1804-14). 1769-1821)

So pretty to see the rocks under the water Shelley. By the way, Nalley was thrilled that you remembered Twin Pines Dairy. He wanted me to ask if your Grandmother lived in the Detroit area back in the '60's.

Really pretty pictures, shelley.
Where is this, compared to where you are?

It really does look like clear and clean waters... it how it looks here as it pours down from the snowy mountains.
When I find these little creeks, I actually find teeny little fish in them and I really don't know how they get in there!!

A beautiful photo!

I want to go read a good book there on a warm sunny day lol :) looks very peaceful. I love how the spring feed creeks are as clear as glacier rivers don't you?
hope you are having a sunny day!

Our creeks are getting lots of water now. Rain, rain and more rain. Water can be beautiful.

I really like the second shot. It would make a great jigsaw puzzle or framed poster.

Betsy - thank you! It's a pretty creek to visit!

Mildred - I called my mom yesterday and she was having a nostalgia moment too about Twin Pines! LOL!!

Hi Wendy - It's about a 10 minute drive from our cabin.

Michele - I've always wondered about that too when you see the little fish in a small creek - :)

Busy Bee - thank you! Clean is my favorite thing! wink, wink!

Nature Lovin - I'm still astounded over what you told me previously of what could've happened to this creek. Makes me appreciate it all the more!

Benny & Patsy - It rained too much last week - hoping for a weekend of dry weather!

Cedar - I love puzzles too!

Tricia - thank you! Hope you're doing well!

Hillbilly - thank you, you are so nice! I enjoyed your blog too!!
