Path...

Path, Laura Ingalls Wilder's Rocky Ridge Farm, Seymour, MO photo IMG_0072_zps16e88b89.jpg

This is a path at Laura Ingalls Wilder's Rocky Ridge farm in Seymour, Missouri, which was her home from 1896 until her death in 1957. She wrote all her Little House books here. (That is, at the farm, in the house... I don't think she actually sat on the path scribbling down her words, but who knows!)

Path

Here are a few paths in Balboa Park where my Mom and I take Pippin for strolls. There's always something to see there. (Balboa Park is a lovely place about ten minutes from where I live.)

Cool

Keeping up with the idea of refreshing winter pictures of coolness for those of us who melt away in the heat...

This looks quite inviting to dive in, particularly for me with the currently 28°C/82°F in the house (without air condition, which is unusual hereabouts) - but this is a Danish beach in February with temperatures just somewhere around 5°C/40°F. At the time, I wasn't tempted....

Path

In continuation of my earlier post for "cool", I present you more pics from two short holiday trips to a Danish Island in winter. It nearly never snows there, and temperatures below freezing are unusual. However, the last visit presented us with the most beautiful winter weather, ice and snow, and temperatures of about -15°C/5°F. Many beautiful paths invited us to go for walks in the sunshine:

You can't see it here, but a few steps to the left there already was the sea.

For some reason Photobucket is reluctant to load my pics, even though I made them smaller. No idea what's going on, but had to do them one at time and it took forever. *sigh* Anyhoo, here are some paths: The first ones are deer trails leading to my front yard. I had a lot more, but didn't feel like waiting for them to load. You get the idea - all trails lead to my front yard and yummy things to eat....

The last one is a path that I keep mowed around the pasture so I can exercise the dogs and me if/when I need to and don't want to take the time to go elsewhere.

In other news, for those of you who don't see my personal journal, I'm having so much trouble staying logged in to LJ, that I am just not commenting much. I am seeing and enjoying your pictures, just not willing to spend half my life re-logging in every time I want to make a comment (or return to my flist from having made a comment - that's the one that really frosts me). In theory, we may have access to FIOs by next month...
