If I Hadn’t Gone For My Walk #SOL19 #writeout

Columbus Day is always busy at our house — yard work, changeover of seasonal clothes, a few extra moments to catch up on school work. But yesterday’s stunning weather beckoned to me to come outside and go for a walk. I listened!

If I hadn’t gone for my walk, I wouldn’t have spotted this mud-covered snapper as it left the safety of the pond and headed uphill. Why? I’ll never know! I asked, but it didn’t answer!

If I hadn’t gone for my walk, I wouldn’t have seen this garter snake skitter across my path among the leaf litter. I jumped!

And lastly, if I hadn’t gone for my walk, I wouldn’t have been able to tell my husband that I got lost on the same trail we always get lost on together, despite the fact that I had a map with me!

  1. Christie, I loved reading about your walk and seeing the amazing sights. Would you like to wrap up the first photo with your thought about the autumnal image for my Abundant Autumn Gallery collection shared on Twitter? It is a glorious photo that makes me appreciate this season.
