My grandies and I walked (I walked, they jumped, skipped, hopped and ran) through an orange grove today (Monday), in the morning. It was a fun adventure. They picked up sticks, stones, rocks, leaves and whatever else caught their eyes. I enjoyed our time together, and discovered, within the boundaries of the orange grove that there were several ponds and reflection areas.
What a surprise!
Within those ponds were turtles and ducks, haha! The turtles were sunbathing on top of rocks and a platform built for them. The ducks were swimming by, daydreaming in the beautiful sunny day and 80 degree weather. We meandered around the ponds, oohing and ahhing at what was before our eyes. It was a joyous feast of water inhabitants.
My grandie, Logan, was enthralled with the turtles, and watched them jumping into the water, and then swimming underneath the surface. Grandie Emily was more interested in the ducks and their varied colors and sizes. It was fun to see nature through their eyes…their innocent eyes. The wonder of it all.
Nature was shining brightly in all forms, from paddle footed ducks, to shell-backed turtles, to tall grasses and lovely reflections in the water. A good time was had by the three of us.
