I will show you the pictures in the order they were taken, which will give you an idea what my walk was like. This first picture is taken from the old section of the swamp looking south:
Next, I was walking south on the path along the part of the swamp that was in the last picture:
And, a little further along into the wooded section:
Tuning around and looking back the other way:
And then straight across, looking to the west-south-west:
Back into the wooded part:
Looking out of trees to the north-west:
Back along the trail:
Almost back to where we started from. This is the “new” part of the swamp. One year when it dried up completely, I dug a small part of this section out to make a six foot or so deeper hole as a haven for the aquatic life, if we ever had such another severe draught. You can’t see the “hole” since the whole swamp is full and covers about five acres or so. Before I forget, here is the picture:
Three times around the swamp is 1.1 miles, so, back in the day that I did a fast paced walk (for my health) I went around 9 times and thus walked for 3.3 miles. Maybe I ought to start waling again? Maybe when it gets a little cooler.
Ok, that is your tour for today. But, if you would like, go to my old blog “My Swamp” to see some other pictures of it, a couple on a rare frosty morning.
Then, go to another old blog “Where Did the Water Go?” and see it as it was early in September. It was really low. We haven’t had any rain at all since then, so I am afraid to go look at it. It just might be a desert out there by now. Sure hope not.
Maybe I will walk on down there today and take an up-to-date picture and put it on tomorrow’s blog. Too many trees between the swamp and my house to see it from here.
You all have good day now, you hear?
