We had a wonderful weekend with cooler weather and lots of sunshine so we went on a scouting expedition yesterday to try out a trail that has just been opened in the woods. Marks had bought me some new snake boots and I have to say, these are just GREAT!! Comfortable and light with a zip instead of laces. Highly recommend these and, if any of the ladies here in Florida want to get some, they’re called “Pinnacle Zipper Snake Boots”. Not inexpensive, but so worth every penny.
We walked about 5 miles in pretty rugged territory. When I said that they’d recently opened this trail I also forgot to mention that they really haven’t finished clearing it. There were downed trees to clamber over, or go around and it was obvious that not many people had ever been down this trail. Lots of spiders and spider webs as well as the odd snake basking in the sunshine. If I had walked 5 miles in the other boots my feet would have been protesting. Didn’t get that this time at all. Hooray for new snake boots.
Marks is heading into the darkroom to work on some of my Yashica Mat pictures. It has been a while since I used that camera (even though it’s pretty simple), I’m not really happy with that roll and we might get three images that are worthwhile.
Leaving you this Monday with another view of a tree stump that Marks took at Sugar Mill Gardens. He’s photographed this before several years ago and it’s been amazing to see the difference in appearance as the undergrowth changes.
