All New Neighborhood Rabbits

I just took my first walk around town. I decided to start off light, so I only took my phone camera, not my big one. I knew I'd kind of regret it, but I just wanted to get started. There would be other days.

Guess what was the first thing I saw. Rabbits! They went running in front of me just a little too far away for my phone camera to get good pictures. The big camera would have been perfect. Next time.

Luckily, one rabbit stopped not too far in front of me. I got a few bad pictures so you will have trouble seeing the rabbits. If you look very close you can see the rabbit there. It's camouflaged very well. Don't you think? 

Sometimes I can get beautiful pictures and sometimes I can't. The pictures are usually only part of the story though, as they are this time. The real story here is that these are my first results from this new everyday adventure.

This post is also a bit smaller than my last two. The last two were nice meals compared to the little snack you get here. Sometimes these little snack posts are easier to take when a person is busy. I'll have many more of them, but they will be more often than the others. Will you be able to keep up?

I'll have another one of these little posts soon. I'm finding out that I can find lots of stuff on these little walks. The morning is literally alive with activity. Let's see what I find next. I'll talk to you later.

Nature Everywhere

I have lots of pictures for you today with lots of birds. I'm trying to post as much as I can until I finally return to the nature parks at the end of this month. It's not nearly as much as I would like. Seeing the old pictures is fun, but my thoughts about them are from awhile ago.

I kind of like the newer thoughts I come up with more than the old. The new thoughts and adventures are exciting and fun. The old ones are fun, but they've lost their excitement. Still, these old pictures are new to many of you. And nobody has seen some of these before.

And I think I've come up with a fun new idea I'm going to try. I may start it today, and I may wait a little while. Let's see what you think of it. Who knows? Maybe it'll be a dud.

Many years ago I used to take early morning walks around town with my dog. The dog loved it mostly and it was good exercise for me. It was fun because it was like going on a little adventure before I started the rest of my day.

These walks were what I did before I ever knew nature parks existed. I always loved whenever I would come upon even a small nature area along my walk. I remember thinking how much I wanted more of that. So I found my favorite thing in the whole world when I finally found nature parks to explore.

But I always kind of missed my old neighborhood walks too. I always told people that you can find nature even in your own backyard or your own neighborhood. So that's just what I'm going to do.

I'm going to take early morning walks around my tiny town and take pictures of the natural things I find here. From the rabbits to the birds to the bugs and plants, I'm going to find nature. And then I'm going to share it with all of you. And I'll only share the most interesting parts if I can.

This doesn't mean I'm not going to the nature parks. I'll be going to those too. This little neighborhood walk experiment is kind of a side adventure. It's something to add to everything else. This way I'll have even more material to share right here. Just like I said in my last post, I hope to have so much to write that only I can keep up.

Maybe all of this together will give me a much better variety of things to write about. Maybe it will add back the excitement that is needed to do all of this. Like I said, the old pictures are fun, but they lack the excitement of the new.

Okay, that was a lot of pictures, and maybe more words than I realize. So I think I'll end it with that. Let's see if I have something new for you next time. I'm not sure what's going to happen yet. That's what makes it exciting. I'll talk to you later.
