Stay with me, folks! I have a lot of backlogged thoughts that I just need time to write up.
Tonight, I took a brief run/ exploration walk around Armstrong Bend: the place I stay while I'm tracking birds in Tennessee.
I mapped out my route for you. It was SO AMAZINGLY beautiful that I had to take pictures so I could share it with you. Sorry, they're just pictures from my phone.
First, I ran (purposefully avoiding running in a straight line) down from the refuge along Armstrong Ferry Road.
I was distracted by the beautiful shoreline near an RV campsite. I sat down on culvert to enjoy the view.
After I stood up, I realized that the culvert was built to allow water flow from a little inlet... or slough. I walked in along the slough, enjoying the sunset over the west side of the peninsula.
It was getting dark, so I started heading back to the farmhouse, but I was sidetracked again by the gorgeous sunset over the hills of the farm. It was such a gentle warmth and the light breeze smelled so fresh it felt like summer evening!
Thanks for taking a walk with me, I'll talk to you again soon!
