It's Thursday which means Weekend Eve! That makes me very happy.
Yesterday my trip to the office was quick, just as I had planned. I did what I needed/wanted to do and then got out of dodge. Fletch and I had lunch together and then I took off for a walk along the Perkiomen Creek in Oaks. It was beautiful. I don't like the fact that I can hear a lot of traffic while walking on that trail (hello Route 422 with lots of trucks), but the Creek is so peaceful looking. Also, this particular trail is paved which is easier on the soles of my feet.
There were a bunch of flowers blooming - some of them extremely fragrant. First up some phlox (pretty sure that's what they are).
The next ones looked just like Lily of the Valley except they were very tall...so I don't know what they are!
I walked further this time - past where the Perkiomen Creek spills into the Schuylkill. Just as I got to where the two bodies of water meet up, a Blue Heron flew over the water! My phone was in my waist pack and I could not get it out quickly enough take a video, but the Heron landed on the opposite side of the Creek and I took a shot then.
There were plenty of geese around - many with babies. This pair was on the bank of the Schuylkill. I'm not sure if they had youngsters around or not.
I even saw an elephant!!
LOL - the first painted rock I've seen in some time.
Even though it had clouded up a bit and there was no blue sky, it was so nice to get out and take a walk. Not sure then that will happen again. Today I have a dentist appointment at 7:30 and PT at 1:30 and then tomorrow we are forecast to get some rain.
Meanwhile, I'd best get to work on my reports to do something before I have to run to the dentist.
Hope your Thursday is a good one!
