foto friday 6 {where i walk}

So yesterday my dear friend Kari from Thistlewood Farm posted a fun little post about where she walks … and it turns out, it was for a good cause.
I learned that one of Kari’s sisters, Whitney, (exactly how many sisters Kari has is unclear…they seem to be coming out of the woodwork these days), works for The American Heart Association and in honor of National Walking Day (April 4, 2012), they launched a contest on their Pinterest page.

All you have to do is pin a photo of where you walk and you’ll be entered for a random drawing and a chance to win one of five iPod Shuffles and a $25 iTunes Gift Card. Fun right?!?

I first showed you where I walk when I trimmed back the overgrowth as part of my little Kindness Project.  And I just so happened to be back there walking some more on Monday with my handy dandy camera.

Mico also does some swimming … and always learns the hard way that the birds are farther away than they seem.  Always!

This is also the same walk where we found the long board.  And this time we came across a bit of a ship dingy wreck.

So I suggest you all “take a hike” this weekend.  And then pin a picture of it.  🙂

If you’d like to see previous foto fridays you can check them out here, here, here, here and here.

    Look at all that interesting stuff on the beach with the red boat wreck. I don’t know if I would do much more walking if came accross that beach.
    On another note I am taking my sea glass obsession to pinterest and making a “what to do with sea glass” board. Would you like to be a contributor?
