Early in this month of October, Robin of Breezes at Dawn proposed that we take a walk and share with the Blogosphere via her blog. My recent trip back to the Mid-Hudson Valley of New York involved a number of walks, but I decided to share this walk along the Hudson river for Robin’s Walktober.
It was a cloudy, cool day, but our bodies and our minds wanted some outside air and a little exercise, so we took off to a couple of parks on the Hudson River. There were sailboats moored offshore, waiting for a sunny day to take their owners out for a sail.
There were shorebirds swimming, one of which appears to have gotten a leg-up – either he is very tall or he’s found a rock on which to perch.
A barge plied the river waters, heading out to sea perhaps.
We passed trees, one with interesting bark
some with brilliant fall colors – wearing their technicolor coats, I believe
Then a boardwalk to follow to a path that led us a different direction,
past a tiny cove filled with green -duckweed, perhaps?
And another tree that seems to have had a little bit of a problem with stability.
We walked along further, but soon the chill in the air convinced us it was time to return to the car and the warmth of home. This walk on this day was enough.
