Tell me a Story is live and I happened to take another walk. It would be defined as a short walk in the scheme of the length of the wetlands but honestly it was a long walk for me. Especially since there was nothing much happening in the wetlands. Aside from the two Comorant hanging out on the boardwalk railing.
The weather was cool and overcast lending a grayish look to the sky. Much cooler weather is predicted to come in and getting out and walking was good for me.
There is generally so much traffic in the wetlands that the birds have become used to people getting up close to them. Generally speaking people respect the birds space and do not try to touch the birds or intimidate the birds. Not so much on this particular day. I get frustrated because I understand it is a novelty to see and be up close to the bird but I hate it when people do not think that the bird needs its space as well.
My walk was short in some eyes, long in mine. It was time to head home, get the foot up and ice. The downside of the walk is I kept getting cramp in my feet. Not fun, but it was worth it to get out and enjoy filling my head with nature and fresh air.

It is so hard to believe that we are approaching the end of the year. July to August, I slept, watched movies and read. Two months gone just lying on the bed. Then it was back to work, but not back to life. Progress post surgery has been slow. While I tried some short walks they have really been short. Today I decided to attempt what I thought would be a complete walk. It took me an hour of going slowly and stopping and taking photo’s and limping along. So that is my disclaimer, some of my images go over 30 minutes.
So limp along with me. The place I opted to go is probably not my favorite. The walk is dark and lonely, there is no wildlife, just trees and the odd dragonfly, but this was what I was up to and it was an achievement for me. So here are my images from my dark lonely walk.

This month the Artist Inspired theme is Orange. Like pink, orange is not one of my favorite colors. For a person whose wardrobe consists predominately of black, burgandy’s and blue, orange is kind of bright for me.
So what do I think of when I see the topic orange. Since moving to the USA, orange has become associated with fall, of which I see very little of in South Florida. The other association is Halloween. Having never grown up with it, it really has not become a tradition I am inclined to follow. Lastly is Thanksgiving. Mmm, another tradition that I did not grow up with. Quite honestly I have not really got too involved in this either. We have been to a couple of Thanksgiving dinners. Typically, South African barbecue and are thankful it is a four day weekend.
Every month I go to a out of office meeting, where we sit at the oval table to discuss past or future events, propose changes etc. Our hostess is the most amazing lady who not only hosts us, but feeds us as well. The other very unique talent that she has is to create an environment that reflects the celebrations of that month. So if it is Valentines day, we have hearts decorating the table, if it is Easter we have eggs and rabbits, and if it is Fall and Thanksgiving we celebrate that with browns and oranges, and all the fall colors. So today I am sharing with you the beautiful orange decorations from this last months meeting.
We are fed, we are happy, the meeting is over and I think this pumpkin says it all. Wishing you all a beautiful fall and a wonderful time with your family over Thanksgiving.
It’s a new season.
A perfect opportunity to do something
new and bold,

I love this month’s theme. Kim chose the theme Texture. Kim shared her thoughts on the theme texture:
Texture can add impact to images, and can be just as powerful as bold color, leading lines, or dramatic scenery. Texture adds detail, dimension and even drama to an image.
For me texture is all around and I see it whether I am walking in the wetlands, hanging out on the beach, up close with my critters, or in the simplicity of a raindrop.
Here are my images for the interpretation of the theme textures.
