Started my day off not long after daybreak, making my way into town to execute my civic duty. Our early voting precincts opened Saturday, and I was among the first wave of voters there to cast my ballot in the 2012 Presidential Election.
Afterwards, I kept close to home, looking for places to photograph that I may have neglected lately.
I found a new dog park nearby, which also had a lovely trail wending around a small lake. I need to take my Dog-Child, Hershey, back soon to see if she likes it too.
It was a bit overcast and nippy Saturday morning, and I was grateful to find the beach deserted. Unlike my last few weekends where promises of snakes and gators were dashed, when I walked up the trail to the Gulf, I could see dolphins playing offshore. I know… I know… if there are no photos, then it didn’t happen. But, I was so enthralled with watching them, I simply ‘forgot’ to capture the moment. (Actually, I’m selfish, and didn’t want to share.)
Still, the empty beach was lovely, and the quiet and solitude was a welcome respite.
