To share some images of my Walk Home Today

Today the temperature was 19 degrees, which is the warmest day yet since spring started.
I decided to walk home from work, and hope to continue to walk home most days now. It just takes under 1 hour, and the walk follows a creek and just some beautiful sights.

These rocks are part of a medicine wheel created by students from the First Nations University


I walk past the First Nations University. Just a beautiful building, with a teepee structure at the front if you can see it.I believe this is the first First Nations University, and now one of only two in Canada.

Here is the basic structure of a sweat lodge, used by students from First Nations U.  


I walk along this creek which also is a natural site for birds of all kinds. We always have many blackbirds.




Just before turning to the street on which I live.
I moved to this area just over one year ago, because of the natural park environment so nearby, and to hopefully walk to and from work as much as possible. I think I'm very blessed to live in an area with so much beauty. The walk takes just under one hour, and now that our weather is more springlike I know I'll enjoy this.

I just thought it would be fun to share what this little part of the world looked like today!

These photos are lovely! What a beautiful walk home. I'm thinking that you must be in Canada? Because I read the temperature of 19 degrees and winced before realizing it must be Celsius!

And I'm loving the picture at the top of the sidebar!

Re', Thanks for dropping in - right of course, I forgot to mention that this is celsius! :)

I appreciate your comments, I'm just exploring my new camera, and it's software, and I'm just enthralled with what it can allow me to do!

This is my first digital camera, and I had thought I would have trouble using it - but it is all so "user friendly", (it is a relatively inexpensive camera, bought on a good sale, so I paid under $100 - which fit my budget).

But it really has everything I need, and now I'm wanting to photograph everything!

I have read both of your last posts, I haven't left comments, because I was still processing. Poetry is a form I don't feel well versed in (ha ha), and so sometimes I'm not sure how I feel for awhile about something!

But I check in with you often to see what new thing you've done!
Take care, and have a wonderful day!
Brenda
