What a glorious morning along the creek trail it was! I think it must be “that time of year” when I know colder and (hopefully) wetter weather is just around the corner. The creek and duck pond seemed more beautiful than ever during our walk this morning. It won’t be long before the shorts, golf shirts, and flip flops are replaced by jeans, hiking boots, and a wool jacket. December through February can get mighty cold (well cold for us CA wimps) dipping down in my area to the mid twenties in the morning. But for now it is warm, sunny, and still flip flop weather even at 7:00 in the morning.
This morning Kali guided me through an area of the pond that is surrounded by low dry golden foliage (because it was dead due to the drought). None the less I found it strikingly beautiful with colors that closely matched Kali’s fur. Almost like camouflage for her.
So, patient and as always a very willing subject, Kali sat amongst the dry straw-like weeds and allowed me to take a few photos. It was a great morning and I will miss the sun and warmth as I begin my annual ritual of lamenting winter.
