retreat . . .

Everyone needs a moment (or two) to retreat from the go-go-go nature of life. This area on the campus of Wellesley College begs you to stop for a moment and catch your breath. 

the bench.

 the lily pads.

 the Geese Family. 

who could resist.


  1. WOW! What a beautiful, serene, spot, and I love your compositions. I especially love the lily pads! It's a good thing I never went to college there; I'd never have gotten anything done, because I would have sat in that spot for 4 years straight, come rain or snow! (Everyone would think I was a statue.)

  2. not me! Even if I had to step around goose bombs to get there. What a lovely place.

  3. Beautiful spot Nicki! Love your goslings. I have been trying to find some but the momma geese are keeping them far away.

  4. i love lily pads :) I also love geese, they remind me of our Hawaiian Geese / state bird.

  5. Not me...I couldn't resist. I'd be just like you shooting it with my camera. :)

  6. So peaceful..Love your shot! Sorry I been so quiet these last couple weeks, I’ve been really ill (now finally diagnosed with Whooping Cough even though I was immunized) and have had a very rough week.

    1. Madge - get better. I have had times when I felt like I had whooping cough (coughing non-stop) and it is not only miserable, it is exhausting - so I can only imagine what it would be like with the real thing.

  7. Beautiful reflections in that first beckons you to sit down in peace and do some reflection of your own. Beautiful

  8. Such a serene setting...

    Have a lovely weekend!

  9. Looks so peaceful long as the geese don't chase you away. :)

  10. Looks like the most peaceful place! :-)
