Randomness from a Friday Walk

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/admire/

Yesterday was a nice day for a walk.  Looks like it will be the same again today.  Sunny, on the warm side (not too warm for me yet – hopefully we are past the stage of too warm for Emily days out here.  Things tend to start cooling down in August…), and very still.

I decided on my walk yesterday to look up, down, around – no, not for Pokemon (there are enough people out there paying no attention to people around them as they look down at their phones), but for different things to take pictures of.  It’s something I need to keep working on.  There’s a lot to see out there if we just keep our eyes open to the possibilities.

So, naturally there is a water picture.  I tried to get the lighthouse in the distance.

There is a lot of brown around right now.  This is typical for this time of year here.  It’s always struck me as odd, living right on the ocean as we do, but Victoria is extremely dry in the summer.  Last summer we went for 4 months with no rain.  It has rained a bit here over the past few months, but not enough to keep the grass green.  Reminds me a bit of Saskatchewan…

Lots of bees around – makes me hopeful for their future.

And, of course, lots of flowers in the park

  1. What?! No kitty pictures?

  2. Really nice post! Loved the picture too!

  3. These are great photos. I love the blueness of the water photo. The river water here is brown and every time we are near the ocean, it is so overcast that the water is all gray. Have a blessed day!

  4. What a lovely walk – you’ve taken some really pretty photos! 🙂

  5. Beautiful walk – it looks far drier there than here, and we haven’t had a ton of rain recently.

  6. I love the pics, and I am jealous! I walk about 4 miles every morning, but around the track of a soccer park. Gets boring, though I do sometimes see an occasional rabbit or duck. Still … love your scenery!
