First Day of Spring
With yesterday being the first day of Spring I thought I would take advantage of it. For those of you following me on Twitter @IanKuhnPhoto you know that I had a real estate photo shoot first thing in the morning, and then I spent the rest of the day outside between Jetton Park and Birkdale Village.
The temperature was a bit cool at first, and the skies started out really gray, but in the afternoon it warmed up nicely. So much in fact that I started the morning with my heat on, and ended it with the AC cranked in my car.
There's just something about walking nature trails this time of year that refreshes and relaxes. The trees are beginning to bloom, you can hear the geese honking as they fly over the water, and the birds are usually all out chirping. Overall, not a bad way to spend a morning.
After lunch I had decided to stop by the Wolf Camera store in Birkdale Village to price check a few things, but unfortunately that location is closed now. It was still a nice afternoon for a walk around the village though. Some of the restaurants even had up weather blockers and had patrons sitting outside.
I've only been to Birkdale a couple of times since we moved down here and it's only ever been to the Wolf Camera and Barnes and Noble sections. I must say that I've been missing out. I decided to walk the whole village, or at least all of the shops.
I have seriously been missing out. We tend to eat a lot of organic/homegrown foods due to allergies and what not, and I found a couple of shops that I will definitely be going back to. I found a nice spice shop, and also Isabella's Olive Oils & Vinegars where I got to taste some fantastic vinegars including a Dark Chocolate Vinegar. (Believe it or not, it is much tastier than it sounds.)
Overall it was a very nice day, and I apologize for what seems like a A) a short blog update, and B) a somewhat incoherent one, perhaps I will explain in a future update.
