I wear a vest with pockets. In my pockets I carry my car keys, my camera and my cell phone. Around my neck are my binoculars. In this way I am ready to ramble about until the sun sets. Then I turn and head back to my car. This makes me supremely happy and content. This never fails me. After an hour or so, I begin to feel like I could dissolve into my surroundings. That I could stand and evaporate . I feel such peaceful bliss.
The scene above is early into my usual route. The pond on the left is part of the nursery irrigation system. There are many little ponds like this one that I think are connected . It was quiet as I passed it on my way in. As I was on my way out, at about 8:00 the Spring Peepers were calling! I stopped to listen and noticed also a beautiful yellow warbler. It was darting about catching insects.
On the side of the pond that is visible is also a place where Coyotes apparently stop to leave their mark. I see "scat" in various stages of disintegration.
The little roadway you see is one of many. This is what the property is like. Lots of these very appealing roads leading past so many things to look at.
I rarely see a person . I almost never see a vehicle or house.
