Early-Morning Walk

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
--Henry David Thoreau

Oz the Terrier has an early morning walk at local Okeeheelee Park

Monday, we were supposed to get lots of rain courtesy of the broken apart Tropical Storm Erika.  However, we didn't get any rain; instead we had a beautiful sunny day with a cool breeze and no humidity.  We couldn't believe it!  So we headed down to one of our local parks, Okeeheelee Park, and went for a lovely walk around the lake.

Where do you go for your early morning stroll?

  5. We walk around the neighborhood in the morning and evening. We have a river walk but have not walked it yet. Hoping to try it when the weather cools down. Schooner and Skipper love to go for walks!

  6. Early morning walk is the only option for me, when the sun rises up, the ridiculous heat could melt my paw.

  7. We are glad you did not get that bad rain storm, and got to go on that walk. We will be glad when it cools down here also.

  13. I get mum up between 5 and 5:30 to take me on my walky to our dog park at the apartment. If she is feeling not so lazy, she will take me to Udall Park and then the store. We cannot go far later in the day because of the heat. Hopefully within a month or two, it will cool off!!

  18. We don't do early mornings in our neighborhood due to the school kids and traffic. Mid-mornings are nice and peaceful so that's when we head out and grab us some happy. ♥

  21. So glad that nasty Erika did not get you! Mom can't wait for retirement (end 2016) so mornings can be for walks and not hurrying to get ready for work!

  27. Early morning is the BEST time of day. We're getting our walk earlier, because the sun is coming up earlier.

  31. Indeed, it truly IS a blessing! We have a squillion different routes to take. That's one of the reasons Mom and Dad chose to live here! Right from our house, we can go so many cool places!
