An Evening Stroll

Our temperatures are coming down making for cooler evenings which are perfect for a walk around the neighborhood. I took my camera along on our last evening out and decided to share some of what we seen beginning with these beautiful wild daisies.





Our dog, Sadie, always leads the way down the trails. She loves all the things to explore in nature. Her tail never stops wagging!














Smoke from the wildfires in California has made its way north to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. The haze is in the air every day and is affecting the Olympic track trials going on in Eugene this week. Of course dealing with the smoke is much better than what they are dealing with in California and I hope they get the fires controlled very soon.



We always see at least one deer along the way. This time we saw two. We live in a fairly populated area, however, it borders a forest so it's common to see deer in yards and even exploring our cul-de-sac from time to time. This time of year they stay up near the trees more where it's cooler.



Nature is so beautiful. Be sure to take the time to enjoy it!

Oh my . . . what a lovely walk. Thank you so much for sharing it with us! And, it reminds me of how I miss my o' Karma . . . my black lab who always had to be in the lead, but always stayed in my line of sight.

Gotta love the puppers ... and they're SUCH good company on a walk such as this!

Thanks for the lovely stroll. I never take time to enjoy our woods which is too bad 'cause the dogs would love it.
Thanks also for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.
Your jewelry is lovely....

How lovely! It was a gentle reminder to me to slow down today and make some time to relax. Thank you.

How lucky you are to live so close to nature. I enjoyed the pictures (Sadie and the deer were so cute). I feel so relaxed when strolling throught trails but not too many by where I live. Thanks for sharing.

You live in a gorgeous place for a walk! I'm looking forward to getting back to the west coast this August for those cool, evening strolls! It's pretty hot here right now in Kansas, even in the late evening.
