Eugene's Delta Ponds
On Sunday Christine and I biked to breakfast at the New Day Bakery and then biked across the Willamette River to check out the Delta Ponds.
In Eugene there are actually more bike/pedestrian bridges than automobile bridges crossing the river!
The Delta Ponds are home to lots of waterfowl including ducks, geese, herons and egrets.
There are cool looking bugs as well.
The bees are busy this time of year.
My goal for the trip was to see turtles.
The first two turtles I saw dove into the water before I could get a picture, but this one was further out and must not have seen me as a threat.
We're really enjoying Eugene. It's a beautiful place to explore.
