A Walk In Sacramento
It was fun to see my interview with Stacy Julian posted at Big Picture Classes today. The site is celebrating its 5th anniversary. Go visit, if you’ve not been there already. http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/blog/
Yesterday Cal and I took a walk around Ancil Hoffman golf course. It was a lovely warm fall day.
We saw lots of wildlife; thankfully, no mountain lions nor rattlesnakes. Plenty of less dangerous creatures were there. The turkeys were everywhere. Grateful, no doubt, that they will not be gracing any tables in a couple of weeks. Those holidays do seem like they are right on top of us, don’t they?
The sights were wonderful from the birds and animals to a little bit of fall color. Dozens of yellow jackets and hundreds of ladybugs darted into our path.
Delightful sounds greeted us along the way. The rapid rushing of the river, the rustle of racing fallen leaves, the clink of golf clubs hitting balls, the clunk of golf balls hitting trees, the chatter of squirrels, the gobble of turkeys and the honk of geese were just a few.
The smells were interesting, too. A fall flowering bush with a heavy sweet sickly smell, burgers cooking at the clubhouse and the sharp tangy scent of the wild dill that hung along the walkway begging for a caress.
I am a slow walker but Cal looked down on the golf course and critiqued the swings he observed while he waited for me to catch up.
We ended our walk luxuriating in a good cup of java at Boulevard Coffee.
Here are a few glimpses of our walk.
