Last night was so incredibly lovely that we decided to talk a nice long walk. Here are some of the sights from our little adventure. It is these simple pleasures that make living the country life so enjoyable.
While walking along my daughter spotted this fine friend on the other side of the pond hunting up a late day snack no doubt.
A little further down the way we startled a small duck. She came out of the rushes chirping and swam off. She’s probably got her little ones in the rushes ready for nightfall. At first I thought she was a mallard but I was mistaken.
Although we often walk here, Spring is such a busy time that many changes happen even in short periods of us not visiting.
It’s not like we took an extended journey, the whole walk is only about 3 miles. However it was just packed with wonderful things to see. My daughter has a keen eye and after startling Miss Duck she went around a bend and we couldn’t see her. Then there was a lot of ‘wake’ in the water and my daughter said, “Mama…look!”
This little beaver was very hard at work and made this lovely dam. Very tidy and neat I might add.
It wouldn’t be a complete adventure without some element of danger now would it?
Today I am 49! Happy Birthday to me. I hope you are all having a great week. Looking forward to a full year of health and wellness.
