Morning Walks...

Richard and I have been taking morning walks with the dogs for the last month. The walk exercises all of us, plus helps burn off excess energy for the dogs.  We walk a mile down a gravel road to a bridge that crosses a creek. We check out the creek every day, looking for fish, turtles and even the occasional snake (shudder). Barn swallows, heron and bald eagles fly overhead. The barn swallows live under the bridge. The herons nest down the road, in a shady grove near a low-water bridge. The eagle's nest is about half a mile away. 

Richard with Echo and Buddy, and a spectacular sunrise splashed across the sky. This was taken a few days ago.  

Today, walking out of our driveway, this was hanging in the air, attached to the ground and the hanging limbs of our driveway pine.  It floated there, with the sun's rays streaking through it, the only reason we saw it.  When we looked at it from the road, it was invisible. 

I love walking each morning, its a meditation with God, an affirmation of faith.
