Hiking “Fences”

The trail’s on the other side of the fence!

Hi Diane. I haven't been up long enough to see what the weather will bring today. Right now does not look promising. I am always amazed at the Florida countryside because it is so totally not what I expect: one big amusement park surrounded by Everglades and orange groves with lots of Latin music playing the background. LOL. Just like I suppose those who have not bee to Colorado think we are one big ski slope. Have a great weekend. (No, the walking stick does not make you look fat.)

Diane, You made me laugh...fat . No way girl. I love those pretty skies you are having. Yesterday here was nice. It was chilly but warmed up later. I went out just as it was getting dark, to see the moon . I could see my tree lights for the front window. Loved that. Our skies were clear , so calming to me. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Ahhh warm sunshine - I think I can remember that. The temperatures in town are above freezing but we are still in a white frost covered wonderful - rains start tonight so I'm sure we'll be back to our Washington green very soon. I much prefer rain to snow, love the sound of it on the skylights and the leaves of the trees drip, drip dripping with rain. Great time for a cup of tea with a friend - and a cookie.

Christine said...

Great day and great place with great sunshine!
Have a great day hiking!

Looks like a lovely trail for a hike. We got out in the woods ourselves today for a short hike - it felt good to be outside. xo

Ida said...

Wonderful fence shots and I'd go for a hike on that trail. Loved your walking stick shadow shot.

Hi Diane, First of all thank you for the link. Liu sure is a pretty little doll.
Lovely photos! Hicking surrounded by a lovely landscape is the best.
Take care!

Ps: Your walking stick needs to put some weight on

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Ah, fun in the sun - you lucky girl!
How do you find the walking stick? I've thought about getting one, could be handy for poking at things too.

Brenda said...

Stinkin' skinny walking stick anyway!
