During the Covid 19 pandemic, my husband and I take the same walk any day the weather permits. We are never bored because there are new animal visitors, environmental changes or walkers bring something new to the area. It is never boring.
If one is observant, even the smallest woolly bear doesn’t escape attention. This one was active the last week of April while there is snow on the ground in places. We were surprised to see it when temperatures still drop below freezing.
This feeder has been in place for the last year but we don’t recall seeing this motorcycle until recently.
We expect to see one of the squirrels or chipmunks riding it one of these days.
Recently someone piled these rocks, reminiscent of an Inukshuk, an Inuit stone pile to signify human form. While this formation doesn’t look like a traditional Inukshuk, from a distance it catches one’s eye briefly as a figure of a child.
Last month, someone drew a chalk face on one of the trees along the boardwalk.
The question mark is intriguing. What is it questioning? The drawing has survived the last month in all weather. I’d like to know more about it.
At the end of the boardwalk the natural piece of art always catches my eye.
I love its stark presence on the edge of the shoreline, something to hold on to against the elements. It is a great example of how good roots keep us secure.
One day a fellow walker parked her AMC Rebel in the parking lot.
It was an curious addition to the modern vehicles present there, harkening back to the days of our youth.
There is always something new or old to see along the boardwalk.
