Post ing the blog a little later than usual today. Sorry about that. But it's getting kind of hot and humid here already. And that's ahead of schedule. I don't know if we are just going to have an early summer, or if this is a temporary and unusual weather situation. Regardless, I still enjoy walking but today I set out on my walk bright and early, before it got uncomfortably warm for my walk. I know the sign above is for bicycles but that's ok. Pedestrians are allowed too.
This is some of what I saw:
I saw birds. Lots and lots of birds of all sorts. Most of them were singing and chirruping and carrying on. Apparently they all had a great deal to say. Unfortunately I do not speak "bird" so I've no idea what they are saying.
I actually heard far more birds than I saw. And that is mostly because there is also a ton of trees. Trees of all sorts. Flowering trees, non-flowering trees, big trees, small trees, palm trees of so many varieties it's ridiculous. Old trees, new trees, trees that beg to be climbed. There are trees with funny haircuts and trees bearing fruit.
And because there are a lot of trees, there is blessed shade. One of the best parts of taking a walk on a hot day are the shady spots. There is often as much as a 10 degree temperature difference in the shady spots. Ahhhhhh.
And flowers. Oh my goodness yes. So Many Flowers! You cannot begin to imagine how good the air smells here. Yummy!
Saw a lot of fences of one sort or another too
And places to sit a spell. Some nicer than others of course. That's always the way
And some other random photos that I cannot seem to categorize but here they are:
Oops. Almost forgot. The water. Saw the water. Hey it's an island. The water is in every direction.
So that's it. That was my walk today. Thanks for coming along.
Have a great weekend! Catch ya again on Monday, I hope!
Hugs all 'round
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.
