I actually had a different post idea planned for today… but instead pushed that out till next week.
Today is New Year’s Eve and I was able to take a long weekend to unwind, get outside, and get caught up on some writing.
Well at least I got the get outside part done!
This was a much needed break and ended up being a beautiful day to hit the trail.
A time to slow down, enjoy the scenery and look for little details to photograph and preserve.
It was amazing to see the different aspects of the trail. Frosty and slippery in some areas, sunny and warm in others.
Bailey and I had headed down to the South Slough Estuary and it was the right place to go.
There were a few times Bailey was a little too excited headed down the trail he almost pulled me down on the slippery walkway. Made it rather interesting at times…
It’s important to take time to breath deep, slow down, take notice and observe what is going on around you.
Don’t take opportunities like this for granted! Even if it is just sitting on the porch 🙂
Happy New Year!
