I have driven throughout these same neighborhoods for the past 24 years so I know where I'm going. However, walking the neighborhood, I see a lot of things that I don't see in a car. Driving past front yards at 25 mph (I'm a safe driver mind you...) I miss a lot of the little details.
The air has been quite smoky lately due to the King Fire which is burning in El Dorado county. It's in the Sierras and we live well west of it in the Sacramento valley. None the less, we've had our share of smokey mornings.
I usually drive the same route to work, to the grocery store, to the gym, to wherever I'm going. It's nice to be able to walk the various local streets around my home. I get a different view and also see plenty of unusual sightings.
Safeway and Raley's. I walked in the direction of Safeway and about three blocks away there was a shopping cart parked next to the sidewalk. It appears that during the night a few teenagers gorged on snacks of all kinds and left the evidence behind.
I really enjoy seeing how people decorate their front yards. Some plant flower beds, some have lawns, and some are very unique. Just up the street from us is a very unique tree stump. It looks like it was a palm tree in a previous life, but it has been transformed into a bear statue. Another house has a unique Yin Yang symbol made entirely out of colored rocks.
One of my favorite sights when I am walking is seeing all of the American Flags flying!
So, now it's your turn. Get out of the house or RV. Take a stroll through the neighborhood or campground, heck even the mall. What are some things you've seen that are unique?
