A Tale of two walks

OK I was thinking of a tale of two cities with the title but neither of the walks today were in the city so that didn't really fit for the title for this post, but as it implies I am sharing shots of two walks today, the first one as the sun rose at Walnut beach and I was blessed with a gorgeous sunrise this morning, and the second one through one of the parks here Beaverbrook trails.

I was at the beach half an hour before sunrise with the intention of focusing on walking and getting my steps in but it was such a lovely sunrise I instead took plenty of photos both with my camera and cell phone and only got about 4.5K Steps in, but with my second walk later in the morning I managed to get over my personal goal of 7.5K steps for the day, between the walks I was telecommuting and working on a few things, but all in all a good day and now on to my walks

There is so many photos in this post I almost just went with the shots taken with my phone this morning, but at the last minute I decided to add this recent shot of a nice morning glow around Charles Island which was similar to what I saw this morning, except there were more clouds this morning as you will see later on

Walk 1 Walnut beach at Sunrise

Some lovely colors when I got to the beach this morning which my iPhone really did not do justice with these shots but it gives some idea

What is special about a sunrise or sunset for that matte ris how the colors can change so much all inthe same morning, and today was one of those days

Even looking away from the sunrise such as this shot over the pier had some nice colors :)

As I said for the first half-hour as the sun was rising I didn't get many steps in and took many shots here is another one

When the Sun started to rise then I started walking along the Boardwalk

This next shot is not a great shot, but I took it to show we recently clearly had a very high tide which washed sand right across the Boardwalk.

Walk Number 2 Beaverbrook trails

My Second walk I went to Beaverbrook trails, which is a small area here in Milford, which has been closed for a few years after a fire in 2012 that destroyed the whole area, but this year it has grown back enough that they are putting the trails back into place, its not officially open yet, but I went for a stroll around it anyway and will share a few shots

The trails are around a marshy area, and they have this boardwalk that passes through the area, all brand new
