Brisk Morning Walk

These people are on a brisk morning walk along the river a couple days ago. We don't get a lot of cold days in winter, but when we do we wear sweatshirts and jackets that sit in the closet most of the year. Having endured the long hot seasons of Florida, you won't hear me complain about a spell of chilly weather. Bring it on baby.

This is taken in Bradenton and that's the Manatee River. It's a half mile wide here and a couple miles downstream it empties into the Gulf. It's not uncommon to see dolphins or manatees around here.

I live on the other side of the river in the little town of Palmetto. Locally the towns across the river are known as north river; simple enough eh?

I was walking my dog this morning as I took this image. He sits patiently as I crouch down to get this low angle and perspective of the brick walkway. I take my camera on many of our walks and he's gotten used to my stopping at the oddest times. But come to think of it, this is probably the same view that he sees all the time. Hmmm, maybe I'm on to something.
