Our World, My World

Happy Monday, 

This summer and the month of August are just flying by, hubby and I are getting out for our walks and exercise. On this day we walked the local fire road to another part of our lake. The round trip hike from our house is about 3.2 miles. It was a cloudy somewhat humid day, so my photos are just so-so. I tried to lighten some of the photos. 

The fire road to the lake.

Clicking on the photos, will give you a better view.. 


Another section of the fire road to the lake, views of the lake looking right and looking left, the trail, colorful leaves and some flowers next to the water and rocks. 


"The earth is large enough for all to share, but mankind's heart is not large enough to care." A.D. Williams






Off of the fire road there is a little trail to the lake.


" In nature, nothing exist alone." Rachel Carson

Various warblers seen off the fire road, below are Prairie Warbler and possibly juvenile Prairie Warblers. 





"Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul and sings the tunes without words and never stops at all." Emily Dickinson

I am guessing the id of these birds, juvenile Prairie Warblers. Possible breeders in the forest around the lake. Two cuties, the yellow really pops!






"In order to see birds it is necessary...to become part of the silence." Robert Lynd




Prairie Warblers, above and below.  I am not sure if these warblers are moving through are they breeders in my area?  Clicking on the photos, the views are a little better.  🌝🌝🌝

  8. The quality of the pictures is not the most important thing (and they are not bad at all). It is the fact that you got out for a walk and enjoyed nature that is what counts.

  19. How nice that you can hike from your house! I would never stay home though! lol Love the little Warblers. We hiked this weekend and saw a little Pine Warbler! You live in a beautiful part of the country! Enjoy your week!

  20. Your first photo reminds me of the poem written by Robert Frost "The Road Not Traveled."

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Thank you for the journey. Have a wonderful day!

  21. I like Robert Lynd's quote. Sometimes my birder group needs that quote but I would never use it with them. They have too much fun as a group.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've said it before, but I am so envious of the great places y'all have to walk. I really miss that. Your photo's are wonderful, Eileen. :)

    xoxo

  26. I love quote about the earth large enough to share, and this is the first time I have heard it. all that beauty out there needs to be shared and you did

    ReplyDelete
  27. You have such a lovely place to walk. Right now it is just too muggy and hot to enjoy walking, but I am hoping we get a stray chill in the next few weeks that will turn to fall. Have a great week.

  28. I do so agree with you … this summer and the month of August are just flying by … our days are full and life is good, so I don't complain :)

    Lovely seeing all of your photographs, keep enjoying everyday.

    All the best Jan

  43. Your fire road reminds me of our logging roads in the bush. Hiking and ATV clubs have built trails to lakes and viewpoints much like the one you used. - Margy

  44. Lovely, beautiful photos! Have a nice week!

    ReplyDelete
  45. This looks like a lovely place to walk. Three miles is a good distance, but not so long that you're exhausted when you get back home.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The lake looks great. I love the prairie warbler, and have enjoyed seeing them this season as they go about nesting and defending their territory. Great shots. I did click to get a better look.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Lovely views by the lake.
    Thank you for hosting.

    ReplyDelete
  53. A great area for a walk and love that you share all your photos. Thank you so much Eileen, enjoy the rest of your day and have a great week :)

  54. And if you become part of the silence you realize how noisy it really is. Especially if you have neighborhood cranes, they are sooo loud.
    You two must be in tremendous shape, I think all of us know how much more difficult a camera makes a walk for any distance and that is really far, at least for me. I'm just able to go once around the park with lots of stops on lots of benches.
    There's so much to see where you are, do you ever swim in the lake?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Delightful post! Love the warblers!
