Last Minute and Late Summer Walk

Instead of pallid hum as there is at home,

there are many sounds. DSC_2394

crisp brown leaves on top of sand, new branches snapping underfoot.

Wind through sea grass, like milk poured on rice krispies.

Furious departure

Now you don’t

These photos document my “jaunt” to Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet, SC  last week. Something between an errand and a day trip, a jaunt is something most of us need every now and then.

An empty hole inside of me will holler out to me every month or two, like a starving neglected child. It can’t be filled by any person or even the chicken salad samples at the Piggly Wiggly. These are my signs, and I go.

Hope your week is off to a great start! Do you ever go on jaunts? Are they planned or spontaneous?

For more great close up photography visit Lisa at Lisa’s Chaos. I also linked this with Robin’s new meme, Monday’s Muse over at Cinnamon and Honey.

        m – Come on now, I think you can jaunt, without, heaven forbid, being jaunty. When I think of “jaunty,” there’s too much intent and I’m picturing a throng of overly enthused red hat society ladies. Jaundiced, maybe…

          Do I need a jalopy to jaunt? But I concur… your thoughts about “jaunty” being too forced by dour cultish ladies in red… and don’t forget the varicose veins… their veins are viciously varicose. I suppose I’ve tainted the verb with the thoughts of the adjective.

      I was surprised by all the leaves too. The spider is creepy, and I’m stunned that I for some reason felt it was okay to get close enough to take a picture. I was afraid she had relatives nearby. I think those are spider eggs on her! Double gross!

      My older daughter has had her license for over a year now, and I still can’t quite get over it. But she’s a really good driver now because I endured so much extreme stress when she had her learners permit. My hair started to fall out! Thanks!

      I know they serve a purpose in the circle of life and all that, but why do they have to come in my house and Michael’s pen? This one was in the middle of a state park. I have less of a problem with her.

    Excellent photos!! The purple berries are my favourite.

    I ought to take inspiration and get some photos of the almost fluorescent pink bouganvillia out my back door.

    The best pics are of things we see around us that are supposedly ordinary, but when given a closer look – are beautiful!!

    Thanks. Glad I found your blog. Keep up the great stuff!

    Cheers
