Turkey Creek

Turkey Creek flows by my husband's office.

In recent years the city has developed
a walking and bicycle path along side of it.
This afternoon my husband and I
walked on this path.

A fellow walker told us of all the different wildlife
that call Turkey Creek home.

He had spotted a bobcat, coyotes and foxes
in the early mornings.
My husband has seen a Kingfisher many times.

We watched the Mallards today.

What wisdom of the city, to develop this! Congratulations to them.

Oh I love the reflections in that upper photo! Lovely!

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I have a book that tells of all the different walking trails that are now in my area. There are many!
I would like to go on each of them. My idea is each weekend my husband and I can choose one. I will still walk about in my area during the week.
The photo of the trees in the water my husband took. He carried one camera and I another. My lens was too long to take the picture. LOL!
It is very fun to be walking and taking pictures together.

Dearest Sherry,

The Mallards are so beautiful. I was not able to see the first photo of the trees you describe, they sound very beautiful.

It's so wonderful that you and your beloved go walking together and taking pictures.

Much love and many blessings,

Dearest Sprite,
Oh my, I wonder why reflection photo did not download!!! Perhaps you could do "refresh" and it will. Mine is coming up just fine.
As the weather warms up I hope to be able to go walking more with my husband. I would like to go out at least once on the weekends. Come Spring we will walk at twilight again. Lately we have been visiting with our son in the evenings. We are slowly getting back into our routine.
There are so many lovely walking trails in our city. Being with nature and man-made is nice. It lets me know people are connecting with nature and do care.
Thank you for walking with me.
