A little walk in the park turned out to be more fun than I thought. The weather was changeable, but that made for great skies and changing light. We saw a ton of birds - including goslings and quite a few small herons. We lunched at the foot of the dam - very atmospheric with the dam looming above us, water cascading in front of us and a wonderful metallic clanking sound coming from the roadworks nearby. You could imagine yourself in the War of the Worlds! Lots of people would have thought it terrible - but I enjoyed it enormously! Sadly had to leave early for an appointment so my dam sketch is unfinished and doesn't do it justice.
|The dam at Vasona is 1000 feet long and 30 feet high. At the foot of this behemoth a small heron was fishing, two ducks sunbathed and a small group of artists had lunch|
