6th Annual Worldwide Photowalk

Exciting news! 

It seems they are quietly rolling things out for the 6th Annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk
From what I gather, it's on October 5th this year, and Mr. Kelby is doing something different. 
I believe he is home based in Florida, so he usually leads a walk in that state, 
but this year he's leading his walk in Rome, Italy! 
Now, that would be cool.

Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk
If you've followed me for a while, you know I have participated in these annual photowalks for the past 5 years. On this 6th annual event, though, I have applied to lead a walk, with a certain partner of mine roped in as my co-leader. He's very excited about that. ;)

I signed up for us to lead a walk in the town of West Point, Virginia, which as it happens, is having it's 30th or 31st Annual Crab Carnival that weekend. 

It's a sweet little town with the slogan "3 rivers. 2 bridges. 1 special place." as it is surrounded by three bodies of water, the York River, Mattaponi River, and Pamunkey River. 

Hopefully I will hear back soon and can set up my walk page, and who knows? 
Maybe some people will actually sign up to join our walk. I certainly hope so. 

So, bookmark the photowalk site and keep checking back as walks are added in cities around the world. 
The last time I checked there were 8 walks listed (up from 2 this morning) and I expect the list of available cities will get to the thousands by photowalk day.

I can't tell from their event page, which year it is, but it's one of the two. You know how small towns keep their sites updated so well, right?

Lots Of Turtles And Rain

First, it was so hot outside today.

Here are some photos of the goings-on around our house this past spring when the weather was a lot....gentler.

Back in May we had a lot of turtles hanging around. 
It seemed every day I almost stepped on a tiny one, or saw a big one like above.  You can't see in this picture, but there is another one up the road next to the tree at the top of this picture. 

In May and June it seemed to rain every day. Big rains!
I thought it was supposed to be "April showers bring May flowers"? 

I wish it would rain today. Did I mention it was hot outside?

Mr. Magnum is 16 years old, and he's a very grumpy old man. 
He cracks me up.

We have this combination of a hydrangea and azalea that have been kind of growing and nestling into each other. 

I spied something in the azalea last month.

sweet little robin's eggs. 

I checked on the nest every once in a while and I never saw any activity. 
I hope they made it. The last time I checked a couple weeks ago, they didn't look so good. 
I'm afraid the nest might have been abandoned, but I don't know why.  
I'm very new to this outdoorsy world.  

The last time I spent any time working in or around a yard was as a teenager, and that was not willingly. 

I must admit, though, I actually look forward to being outside now, except on hot days like today. 
The temperature was 96 F outside, but the "feels like" temperature was 111 F.
