Hello everyone on this another beautiful, sunny and warm day. I am really enjoying this warm early summer weather. For me it could be even warmer, but I like this weather anyway. Sure is a lot better than that cold we had not too long ago! Muffin would disagree with me however. She likes her sunshine, but only for a time, then she likes to cool off. But right now there is nowhere for her to cool off, except to sleep as close to a window as possible. A window not in the sun. She is more of a cool weather cat, since she doesn’t like it cold either.
Since it is such a nice day I decided to check out a little trail that is close to my place. I have noticed this trail before but never checked it out. Well, today is the day, I wanted to see where it went. I figured it must go down to the river which isn’t too far from here, in a straight line. I discovered this trail is no straight line.
But it is very beautiful back there and it is a nice wide trail and easy to follow. I never did go all the way to the end of the trail since it didn’t seem to be heading towards the river. However, perhaps it turned that way a little further on. I will explore that possibility next time.
There is a lot of bird life back there but they didn’t want to cooperate with me for some reason. However, there was a lot of wildflowers and they were much more cooperative. Well, mostly. It seems every time I went to snap the picture a gust of wind would come and move the flower. Amazing how many times that happened. But I did get some pictures even if they are not the best. Maybe next time it won’t be windy and I can upgrade my pictures.
Mostly this trail seemed to be following the river and not getting closer to it. But it was a nice easy walk anyway.
Except there was a few mosquitoes. At any particular time I could have over 30 of these critters on my arms, neck, face. They didn’t seem to mind. As long as they got some blood who cares where? The odd time they attacked my ears. That was too much. Dig into me, fine, but leave my ears alone. Fortunately mosquitoes don’t bother me. No lumps. No itching. No problems. Which is why I don’t care if they are biting me. They need to eat too I guess.
But it was a very nice walk. I hope you enjoy the pictures today. Just keeping this one short, once I walk to the end of the trail I will do something a bit longer perhaps. Enjoy your Friday everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
