My walking path-landscape features

My husband and I have been trying to walk 3 1/2 miles every morning. We walk the entire length of our county road until it dead ends. This morning I took along my new camera. It made me enjoy the scenery that I am surrounded by-and should be appreciating.

My newly enlarged tank, full of water.

Mike and little Amos joined by the neighbor's big dog, Lucas.

Wild, native persimmons for Mike to pick and eat.

Our "property" that is undeveloped, waiting on us to make improvements.

A huge broken tree, brought down by flood conditions along the creek.

Large rocks on the road in the flood prone area along the creek, where I fell during the summer! If you don't walk carefully, you will twist an ankle.

The old cemetery on top of a large hill on the end of our road. Some of the graves are Civil War era and before.

Another neighbor's dog, Patches, join us. She and Amos explore an animal burrow nearby.
We are usually joined by several dogs from the neighborhood. I haven't managed to get a picture of big, brown Zeus yet.
I took lots of pictures this morning and will post some of the landmarks that we pass next.

Imagine persimmons growing along a, you get to snack on them during your walk. We don't have wild persimmon trees anywhere around here and I don't see persimmons for sale very often either.

Lovely walk and especially since you and your husband get to be together to appreciate your bounty of gifts.

Looking forward to more pictures since you have a new camera..aren't they fun?

Those persimmons are tiny and full of large seeds but they are delicious. We usually have a couple of them on our walk, but we've just about "harvested them all". I guess I need to check under some pecan trees to see if there are any to snack on!
