Now that our night time temperatures are getting into the low 80's, our mornings are starting with a lovely cool breeze that makes walking enjoyable once again. Unfortunately, my neighborhood walking path was not well maintained over the summer and is currently being cut back so isn't very pleasing to the eye. I hope that with the changing weather, everything will start to grow back quickly.
Everywhere I went yesterday, I noticed all the garbage scattered in the streets and blowing in the wind. It is quite depressing that no matter how many street cleaners they employ, it's not enough to keep up with the amount of littering that takes place. Sometimes the sight of it all and the drabness of everything around me just really brings me down. I will never understand why people prefer to have clean cars but don't mind having a crappy country. It just doesn't make sense. And the fact that the government doesn't do anything to encourage or educate makes it even worse.
So this morning I headed to the Corniche which is one of the most well maintained areas in this country.
There were lots of people out walking and the birds were enjoying a freshly cut lawn and water from the sprinklers.
Definitely a sight for sore eyes.
Today was the first time I've seen swallows in the morning as usually they come out right at dusk. Even with my big camera, it is hard to get a good picture of them since they are always so busy swooping here and swooping there. But today I captured this one with my phone and was quite pleased.
A nice 45 minute walk in lovely surroundings to start my day off on a positive note.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
