New Years Day 2020

On January 1, 2020, I captured a few back yard bird pictures to start off the new decade. Happily, the first bird to pose was an Eastern bluebird,  sitting proudly on top of the nesting box and then flying over for a second photo  opp on the nearby shepherd’s crook.

Later in the afternoon, before sitting down for our traditional pork chops, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes, we decided to start 2020 with a trail walk in Chagrin River Park. That’s where I captured the rest of our new year’s day pictures. Taking  the trail that led us to the river overlook, we followed it for an easy 2.5 miles until it eventually led us back to the fire pit.

There were quite a few other trail walkers enjoying the chilly afternoon; most of them were walking dogs, but nobody was warming up around the fire. Because it was beginning to die out, Bob picked up a couple of logs and built up the fire before we headed for home. Thanks to the fresh air and exercise, we were ready for our sauerkraut and pork chops.

Happy New Year friends and fellow trail walkers.
May 2020 be a good year for you!
