Tuesday farm days

my skirted farm girl


Recently my friend gave me verbal directions on great walk in his area. He mentioned veering off on a path to the left…or was it to the right? Fearing I’d miss the turn, I asked if the path was on the left or right side a few times.

He said, “It’s a path. You’ll see it.”

When I’m looking for a path I think of a narrow patch of grass knocked down by deer hooves shown below. (It’s actually a little more obvious in real life than in this photo)

deer path

This is what I saw when I followed the path through the grass. Deer often use the same paths so I look for the paths to follow where the deer cross the road.

My path questions were unwarranted-ridiculous really. And I noticed my daughter and I both switched out our socks and heavy shoes for flip-flops for the walk today.
