Day 86 - It Was About the Walk

Decorated porch
Today, several things motivated me to keep it simple.  Very simple. 

First, it was quite cold and damp today.  Gray skies, rain this morning, 39 degrees.  Second, I ran a bunch of errands today and did not get to my walk until 3:00.  Third, I had such a picture overloaded day yesterday, that I wanted to keep it simple, photo wise.

Garages backing up to an alley.
So, I drove to one of the many subdivisions around here that I have not yet explored, put on all my cold weather gear, and walked in a neighborhood called Brinkley Manor.  This development has new single family homes and townhomes, all with practically no yard.  They were designed, I am pretty sure, for the busy professional who doesn't want to do yardwork.  As a matter of fact, most of the homes had just a garage in the rear, lined up along a paved alley between the homes.  There were only a few houses where you could put a playset in the yard for children.

So I did a brisk walk, with only two photos, which I am only posting to document that I did it.

Tomorrow, the weather should be sunnier.  I hope to get out to another of the tree farms in this area.
