A nice place to walk





There is a small park not far from my house with a nice walking trail. It looks pretty this time of year and sometimes you can get a glimpse of a great egret stalking its lunch in the water. I've been trying to get out and walk every day and I'm thankful to have nice places like this close by.

Linking to Thankful Thursday.

This is a perfect place to walk. I can only imagine all the birds, wildlife, and wildflowers through the seasons. In the spring and summer, I bet it's alive with the sounds of nature. Each walk would be an adventure.

...I saw an egret on my walk today!

You're fortunate to have such a place close by. And our Florida flora and fauna take a backseat to no place. I can't do much walking anymore, but Lois is making great use of our several miles of trails here in Trilogy, and we do bike as often as we can.

That does look pretty and a great place to walk and unwind whilst chatting to the egrets!

It looks lovely. I'd walk willingly every day with sunny skies - though I suppose it'll get too hot there soon.

One of the reasons I've been going to the Desert Botanical Garden so much is to get out and walk. I love walking where there is nature to observe and this looks like a great place to do just that.

You are lucky Lois, this is a lovely spot to walk and then the possibility of getting some bird shots too.. bonux!
P.s. I think the rabbits that survive everything that man throws at them then have the added worry of not being snatched up by the ospreys, it sure is a tough work out there ☺

It looks like a perfect walking spot. I especially love your first and last shots. We have a similarly wonderful place to walk but winter has been harsh and we've let ourselves be discouraged more often than we should.
