A Walk with Merrillee
Walking is one of my favorite ways to get exercise. I have two places that I often walk--the beach near our home and my neighborhood. When I walk on the beach, I like to walk in my bare feet right at the water's edge. The wet sand is easy on the feet. Every day the beach is different. Some days it's crowded, and other days it is nearly empty. Sometimes the ocean is calm. Other days the waves are angry as they rush to the shore. These photos are just a few of the scenes that I encounter when I walk on the beach.
I have taken my camera to the beach numerous times, but I never think to take it when I walk in my neighborhood. I've missed the opportunity to take photos of some very interesting things. Just this past week I've seen a bobcat, rabbits, hawks, snakes and the very common squirrel. I'm told we have a couple of alligators that inhabit that ponds in our neighborhood, but I have never run into them.
Where is your favorite place to walk, and what interesting things have you seen while walking?
