For Belinda: Scenes From a Walk

For Belinda at www.busymindthinking.com.  Some time ago she asked her followers to post pictures of where they live.  Yesterday I finally remembered to take my phone with me when I took a break from work and went for a walk.  The following photos are from part of a “Nature Trail” that runs through the development next to my office complex.  While I frequently (well, every work day) bemoan my commute from the suburbs across town to the city limits, I am grateful for this walking trail that allows me to truly escape my office environment and clear my head.  The trail is mostly concrete pavement but it circles around a few man-made ponds and through some impressive oak trees.  I’ve seen red-shouldered hawks, white egrets, fox squirrels, dragonflies (in abundance this time of year), and turtles.  The last photo is my last stretch of sidewalk before arriving back at my office which is at the end of that street.  Belinda, I hope you enjoy the photos.  Big virtual hug coming your way 🙂

    I love the Spanish moss in the great live oaks.

      Me too. I’m glad that they kept as many of the oaks as they did when they built the development. My office complex was in this area before the development though, so for awhile it was like working in the countryside.

    The office complex where I work has a similar series of trails. It’s just getting to that ideal walking time of year, too.

      Yup, it’s still pretty hot here. I have to wear a hat, carry water, and I still come back all sweaty … The good part of that is people will stay clear of me for awhile 😉

  3. These are beautiful pictures Marie. I especially like the lakes. I have a thing for water. I like lakes, rivers and generally the ocean.

      Thanks, Julian. It’s nice to be around water, especially on hot sunny days 🙂 I’m surprised my camera took such good photos. It’s just an LG840G that I got through a prepaid plan. I guess I just underestimated LG 🙂

    My friend Marie took me on a peaceful journey that has literally made my day. If you’d like to walk with us, please visit Marie. She is as beautiful outside as she is inside! Thanks Marie, much love!

    Belinda, these are truly beautiful photos. I especially like the lake pic, because i like the way the water flows aimlessly.
