ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " K "



Here we are almost at the middle of the alphabet.
I'm sure you KNOW the letter for Wednesday is " K ".
These KIDS are KIN to each other and we had a
difficult time KEEPING UP with them to take a picture.
Since they weren't KITH or KINFOLK to us,
we only wanted to photograph them from behind.



What were the KIDS so KEEN on seeing?
KOKANEE Salmon were spawning in Taylor Creek at Lake Tahoe.
I got a KICK out of watching the amazing red fish
expending their last bit of energy to go back to their birthplace.
They will lay their eggs and come to the end of their lives.
It makes me wonder how they can KNOW where they were hatched and return to the same spot.



The ducks seem to have an inate KNOWLEDGE of when and where
the eggs are layed and then they will have some gourmet meals.
Duck Caviar...... or is it KAVIAR????



This last week has been so wonderful.
Bev and I are truly KINDRED Spirits.
We KINDLED a friendship through blogging and finally got to meet.
Can you imagine? She traveled all the way from Florida just to visit with me.
Bev and I haven't stopped talking and comparing our lives for a full week.
My Hubby KEEPS KIDDING us about being sisters.
We have so much in (K)ommon.
Its been a great Highlight of having this blog and finally meeting a dear friend in person.

KUDOS to Mrs. Nesbitt for beginning this fantastic ABC Wednesday.
(K)lick on her name on the sidebar to see what others have posted for the letter K.

mrsnesbitt said...

Oh yes - meeting up with blogging friends is so much fun - who knows one day more of us may meet up. It would be great to have an ABC Wednesday convention - but alas there are so many of us - which is a good thing - still we all connect here weekly! Great stuff!

Leena said...

Thank you, Sue, for your visit my site! I have had very happy summer with children`s family but of course also busy :)
It is really nice thing that you meet your blog friends.
I use still my slow mobile connection in the summer cottage and photos open very very slow.
I wish good Tuesday to you, Sue!

Sandra said...

love the photo of you and Bev, and so glad you are having a great time together. sometimes we just click with someone and it sounds like you two did. tell her she missed that sunrise, it would have been the same view from the middle of her street

Freda said...

Wonderful picture of the two of you. Both alike and both smiling!

Gramma Ann said...

I love your K post today, and the excitement of meeting a blogging friend, how great. I like the picture of the Kids leaning over the fence watching the salmon. That must be an exciting time watching the salmon. How fortunate you are to live where you get a first-hand look at them.

Kansas Bob said...

Have not heard of a Kokanee Salmon. So glad that you and Bev had such a great time.

Sylvia K said...

Isn't it fun to meet fellow bloggers? I've been able to meet several and it's great! Such a fun post for the K Day! And your photos are delightful as always! Enjoy your week!

Leo said...

Mine Is Here

Andy said...

The kids in the photo look so kute.

Jedediah said...

Love the salmon picture. I always wonder how they find their way back (and I'm slightly creeped out by the way they change when breeding season comes around).

RuneE said...

I wouldn't have thought it possible to get that many "K"s - the Kokanee win with me.

Beverly said...

I think this is so neat. Bev and I have been blogging buds for awhile. We "met" because we share a name.

Carver said...

What a great post for the letter K. Fun meeting a blogging friend and good shot of your two. I love the shot of the kids.

Rumya said...

Lovely post for the K. Lots of K's in it!! :)

Nanka said...

Loved the photos! Especially you two electrifying friends and the cute bunch of kids!! :)

Cezar and Léia said...

Amy said...

Sue, We are on the same wavelength with kith and kin. Loved your assortment and especially your report on your kindred spirit, Bev!

The capture of the 3 young ones on the bridge is precious!

Reader Wil said...

Great Ks and how wonderful that you have met a blogging friend!

Kay L. Davies said...

Wonderful that you and Bev had such a good time seeing the sights, and talKing!!
I had no idea there were Kokanee spawning that far south, because I remember them from Lake Okanagan in BC where I grew up. I also knew they could be found in Washington State, but I didn't have a clue about Lake Tahoe.
So of course I had to resort to Google, and find there are landlocked sockeye salmon (aka Kokanee) in many parts of the US, including New York.
Learn something new every day. Thanks, Sue!

You always do a brilliant job of your ABC posts. I think the Kidlet shot is adorable and it's so Kool that you got to meet a Ko-blogger and you do indeed look like sisters. Great photos as always. Geesh.. I Kan't take Kredit for a single true K word. ;)

Shammickite said...

Oh what fun to meet a fellow blogger, and to think that she came all the way from florida to see you! marvellous!
I have met one of my blog friends when he and his wife flew through toronto airport on their way to australia, and it was such an interesting experience.
Maybe we will meet some day!!!???
