Early Morning

After a spring/summer hiatus from my morning walks, I’m starting to get back into the habit. Oh, it’s fairly easy now, but as winter approaches, it will really be a chore to crawl out of a nice cozy, warm bed, and pull on layer after layer of clothes to face those cold temps.

I usually walk at a fairly brisk pace for about 30-45 minutes, depending on the day’s schedule.

Usually, I visit with a couple of our neighbors out walking their dogs. I commented once to them that I’m surprised they allow me to walk in the neighborhood- since I don’t have a dog to walk.

I don’t lug our regular camera with me on my walks, so it’s nice to have my cell phone when  a pretty early morning scene catches my eye.


This makes getting up early easy….at least until the temperatures take a plunge.

  1. You have a gorgeous neighborhood complete with water views for your walking routine – if I had that kind of “inspiration” I’d probably walk more myself!

    This weather is great for walking! Your first picture is my favorite, lovely.

  12. I’d say those views are definitely worth getting up for! 🙂

  13. This is the best time of year to walk. I wish it would last a little longer 🙂

  14. I also enjoy taking walks around my neighborhood. I’m pretty good at walking during the spring, summer, and fall–but I find it much more difficult to get myself motivated during the winter.

  15. What a beautiful place you have for morning walks!

  16. Love your photos…if those are from your cell, very nice indeed! I would have thought they were from an expensive camera. Beautiful shot of the sun! ~ Sheila
