This seemed to be the longest week ever. By Saturday, I was exhausted, and I didn’t actually do much of anything. Being a slug, apparently, is hard work. I still got up early and went for a photo hike, only I stayed in town. I made a lap at our local nature boardwalk. It’s a mile long, so I had a good walk, and found some fun surprises.
I happened on a trio of turtles sunning themselves on a submerged tree limb. The photo doesn’t do them justice. It’s hard to get a decent perspective, but they were huge. The largest of the three had a neck and head as big as my forearm and fist.
Earlier in the week, I visited the beach a couple of times while on errands. It’s snowbird time here on the Gulf, but that flock of gulls is not what that means.
There was also a moment of zen during a recent sunset. It was while I was enjoying the evening light show, that the Mister texted me to let me know our application to adopt a sweet, miniature Lab was approved. Hopefully we can bring our newest fur kid home next weekend.
