A Walk in the Forest on Final Fiction Nature Friday

As the end of April draws near, we reach that magical day when Nature Friday and Final Friday Fiction come together! Today I, Jakey, am going to tell you a story based on a recent walk I took along a forest trail!

This month's "page 87" is from Angel Bilbo's favorite book, The Hobbit, written by J.R.R. Tolkien.
-line 8 ~ as cold as death
-line 12 ~ because he was always thinking of the answer
-line 16 ~ the water if he could help it
Make sure to visit YAM Aunty HERE to get the Rulez and join the fun!!

It was a beautiful Spring day, not nearly as cold as it had been the day before, when Mama and I decided to hike along a forest trail.

I always love feeling the sun through the trees and seeing the shadows it makes on the trail.

We passed a few big redwood trees, and their trunks. This one even has moss growing on it!

Look at these leaves! They are almost as big as I am!

We stopped to enjoy a serenade by a pretty stream next to our trail...

The sound of the water is so relaxing, don't you think?

I also took the time to smell the flowers. I am always thinking how I should tell Arty and Rosy to slow down a bit more and enjoy nature. Most of the time they speed walk but  I like to meander and enjoy all the great sights and smells!

Mama saw some pretty Forget Me Nots right next to the trail.

...and some little daisies!!

As we headed back to the car we saw this cute little Banana Slug crossing the trail...a sure sign it's going to be a wonderful weekend!!

Make sure to slow down and enjoy all the little things this weekend!!

 Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a walk! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE
