Three days ’til spring.
I can’t tell who’s getting more antsy for winter to leave, Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle or this guy on the holding end of the leash.
With the temperature creeping up — I can’t believe weather sites say it’s 31 degrees right now in Syracuse, N.Y., because it feels at least 10 degrees warmer — and the sun out in full, the dog and the dad took a slightly longer route through the streets of our city neighborhood.
We have a hundred combinations of streets and short-cuts, at least. Each delivers its own unique good vibrations.
Today’s journey took us on a service road behind an apartment complex.
We both like the line of impressive pine trees that flank one side of the path, as you can see above.
And what, you might ask, sat just above the tree line, tantalizingly too high for me to get the depth and breadth of the stately pines and the shining orb in the same photo?
Take a good and satisfying look below.
Thank you, our power source above, for delivering us your sun on this pre-spring day.
Thank you, Ellie B, for understanding that dad’s got to stop and shoot as much as you’ve got to stop and sniff.
Thank you, Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys and the Beatles for inspiring my caption below, line of text within and headline above.
Do you have favorite walking paths where you live?
