This week, like all weeks, had a Wednesday in it and you know that Wednesdays are usually Photo Safari days! And this past Wednesday was no different! Joy and I (and Bob) hit the dusty trail. Well it wasn't really dusty I suppose, but it was a trail, as clearly evidenced above. You gotta love those gorgeous big pine trees. They smell so dang good!
This most recent Photo Safari being in January and therefore not all that picturesque, will results in only just a few photos so this will be the Brief Report Hike. It was not, however, a short hike. It was exactly 5 miles from start to finish. An awesome walk in a beautiful place on a gorgeous day. In fact it was a downright chilly start to the day at 46 degrees. Yes, Yes I know to those of you who are living in much colder places 46 degrees is practically balmy but to us, here in the sunny land of Hibiscus and Beaches, it was brisk!
However, I will also admit, that before the hike was done, the temps had warmed up into the sixies and we all took our coats off and wore them instead tied around our waits. It's a great look (or perhaps not)
It is a gorgeous preserve regardless of the temperature. Big beautiful mature growth trees, miles and miles (and miles) of trails, the river of course and a big beautiful pond that on this particular hike was so still it looked like a mirror:
I did get a few birds, most of them a little blurry sadly. Some were quite far away and those little birds just move so dang fast! But anyway, here's what I got bird-wise;
Some pretty flowers and things that once were flowers.......... I honestly think they are beautiful at every stage of their lives
And the beautiful forest just on it's own is always photo worthy all on it's own.
Well that's it. The Brief Report is, indeed, Brief. Soon there will be more variation in my photo safari reports, I promise! And in the meantime, it was still a great time, a wonderful hike, a beautiful place and terrific company along the way.
Have a great weekend ya'll!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
