Okay, a thousand pardons for leaving everyone under the nice shady tree from last time. I didn't think that it would have taken me so long to get my act together. So without further ado, the conclusion to Sunday at G's. This particular picture, as well as others, are basically of Mother Nature during the late spring of '09. This shot is looking north down Connecticut Avenue and as you can see, the trees are just starting to bloom. To the right, you can see another funky tree like the last shot on part 4 and to the left a very nice house that is now currently on the market. This street is usually like this on the weekends, quiet and light of traffic.
I took this particular shot because I wanted to get another view of Cedar Mountain. As you can see, some of the trees are starting to show their leaves a little bit better than their counterparts in pic #1. The pink shadow in the foreground is my finger, which you will see in greater detail in the rest of the pics. Anyways, a small percentage of the time, I detour down this road as it takes me directly to the mountain, which takes me directly home. The hill at the end of the road is pretty steep and is a great cardio workout when you walk it.
The idea behind this picture was that I really wanted to a good clean shot of my thumb. Unfortunately, that pesky flag wot got hidden yonder jumped out and invaded the picture.
This shot is looking east towards Cedar Mountain. You can get a pretty good idea on what kind of view I usually get when I'm walking home from my morning errands, or driving home from work.
This shot is looking down my street and has another good view of Cedar Mountain. My street is pretty much like this year round: very quiet and very deserted.
And finally, a shot of my backyard. The little white thingy used to be deck for an above ground swimming pool. The little pond that you see, along with the small St. Francis of Assisi statue, is where the pool used to be. We took it down about four or five years ago, mostly because it became too costly to maintain (since the kids swam mostly at the campground) and it was becoming vandalized by the neighborhood miscreants. Just off to the left, is the road that runs directly next to Cedar Mountain, which is featured somewhat prominently in my short story entitled Saturday.
Well folks, I do sincerely hope that you enjoyed this little walk around my neck of the woods. It certainly was a blast having you join me on one of my weekly walks, and I sincerely hope we can do this again in the fall and winter.
