August in Texas is almost always horrid, hot and unbearably sweaty. So of course, this is the week Addie insisted on walking with me. Therefore Wednesday, August 6th 2014 was a short jaunt to the train trestle and back.
Here is what I saw.
A cute human in shorts, a Hello Kitty! shirt toting a turkey feather.
I’m still not 100% sure what the feather was for but think it was to act as a fan.
Onto the tracks we hopped…..
The heat was drawing black, icky, sticky thick liquid from the posts….
But the dragonfly didn’t seem to mind the heat.
A fallen pine log.
Inside the tracks.
A sign, there are lots of these with different letters and numbers on them up & down the track.
“I hear the train a’coming, its rollin’ ’round the bend and I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when…..”
I love Johnny Cash. But we obviously didn’t hear the train a’coming or we wouldn’t have been standing in the middle of the track.
We are smart like that.
The hardest part about walking with small humans is they tire easily and take frequent breaks.
Addie found a rock and insisted I take a photo therefore I feel obligated to share it.
This is the rock.
A trio of pinecones.
Another oozing post.
Finally. We made it to the trestle.
I spied this feather. And about 60 others. Our old Tom Turkey has been missing a few days so I just had this feeling…
No more Tom Turkey. Poor old guy.
This unopened trumpet vine flower was nearby…
It doesn’t look very high up in this picture but standing this close to the edge made my hiney hurt.
Nothing makes Addie’s hiney hurt. Expect maybe me.
We tossed a few stones onto our creek.
Only I kept this one.
Said “Farewell” to Tom Turkey…..
And we headed home.
Thanks for joining us today!
