Walking With The Ghosts Along Arlington's Humid Village Creek Wildflowers
I could not go swimming this morning due to the pool being shocked with chemicals.
Rain fell this morning, ruling out the Tandy Hills.
By noon I could take being cooped up no longer, so I took off to the Village Creek Natural Historic Area in Arlington.
The humidity was high before the rain. The humidity went super high after the rain. It was very windy whilst walking under the trees of Village Creek. The wind caused blobs of water to fall from the trees. That was a bit refreshing.
I like being outside when it is hot. I do not like being outside when it is humid.
I did not walk for long. Maybe 2 miles, tops. But, I feel better now, even though I don't think I aerobicized enough to generate any endorphin activity.
The Village Creek wildflowers, in the Village Creek Wildflower Area, were being much more colorful today than the last time I was in this area.
Then, as I walked away I remembered the first pictures I took of the Wildflower Area had been in zoom mode, which renders macro mode not macro-ing correctly.
So, I walked back to the Wildflower Area, got down on the ground and this time managed to take a clear picture of the bright red wildflower.
Lately I think I'm being distracted, without realizing it. I seem to be making dumb mistakes, like today's with the camera, with disturbing frequency.
