A Walk in a Wetland

 Motivated by the almost daily photos and descriptions of a Facebook friend,
my husband and I set off to find "The Lob" - a marsh and wetland preserve
about an hour away from our home.
The day couldn't have been better for this excursion,
and we were NOT disappointed.
Interesting sights and calm sounds met us as we meandered over the well-tended trails.

The green marsh (below) was silent and syrupy in appearance.
Wildflowers, typical for our late-summer weather, were abundant.

 We didn't begin to explore all the trails and left wishing this beautiful
spot was located a bit closer to us.


  1. What a beautiful spot! I'm glad you had such a nice day to enjoy God's handiwork.
    PS - I'm a bit jealous of the spiderweb photo. I would love to find one to take a photo of, but so far have had no success.

    1. I have spider webs in my house (maybe shouldn't admit it), but none of them are quite as intricate or pretty as this one was!

  2. A gorgeous place to go exploring! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  3. I love taking short trips with my hubby. What an awesome place to visit. You captured a great picture with the spider web!
