Wetland walkies: World Wetlands Day

I missed celebrating World Wetlands Day here on the blog (Feb. 2nd), since we had a horrible massacre in Quebec City. I sent a donation to CanadaHelps.org, they are collecting for the children who have lost their fathers. The funerals were held over two days. It was an amazing moment. [Horrific events spur good deeds]

I went out for a walk in the sun and the snow. It was a good bit of exercise. I saw a few deer, but they ran. Lots of tracks in the snow: squirrels, mice, fox, coyote, the five toed one is likely a marten. Lots of deer beds. They hunker down and chew their cud.

Walks in nature are just the restorative type of thing we all need these days.

A walk through the trees, and for me to see your photos, a true reminder that nature is always giving us beauty amid the horror and sadness in so many parts of the world. Lots of tracks, and not a feline companion to be seen, maybe for once a little too cold.

As Olga said nature is what we need right now. Chuck and I went on a long walk this morning. It does clear your head.
Wonderful photos, love all the animal tracks.

It looks like you had good conditions for that stroll.

I did not know about World Wetlands Day until I was reminded of it on Michelle's blog. And now yours. I won't forget again -- I do know about wetlands and appreciate their unique place and the necessity for them.

Walks in nature are my salvation these days.
