A Walk in the Woods – a Picture Post

There are few simple activities that I enjoy more than a walk in the woods. I’m fortunate in that in this part of North Florida, we have some pretty nice woods–not too swampy most of the time.

Today, I wanted to take a walk in the woods, but for whatever reason, I didn’t. Therefore, I thought I’d post some pictures of my last walk in the woods just a few short weeks ago.

It’s just a simple park–really, a woody spot that run alongside a highway, where no one would have build anything, anyway.

Note the highway beyond the trees.

After another bend in the path, or two. Seems like hours had passed, but we were only there thirty or forty minutes.

In the next few photos, I’m trying to be artsy.

I love taking these dizzying “up” photos.

And I try to frame things.

This up photo has a more prominent subject.

And finally, a small field and a swamp … er, a pond.

This is probably the biggest field in the woody part of the park. (There’s also a soccer field and a playground, but I don’t count those.)

Dig those lilly pads!

I must admit that I do miss the more vibrant–and less buggy–woods of Northern Arizona. And I have some fond memories of wandering in some woods in Northern Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Northern England. Each had their own charms.

Do you have a favorite outdoors spot?

  1. That does look like a very nice park to walk thru. I haven’t been outside much in years, but sometimes I think I’d like to be out more again. {Smile}

    1. Just start small. Don’t take on too much at first.

      1. Good idea, Tia. I just wish I could figure out how to build up from where I am now. {Smile}

  2. Our ground is still covered with snow, but my yard has a lot of pine trees and they look quite pretty.

    1. I bet you have beautiful woods. I sometimes I wish winter lasted just a bit longer in Florida. Summer lasts entirely too long.
