These Shoes are Made for Walking (and Bird Watching)

WELCOME BACK to another exciting tale of me going for walks and eating interesting things!!! In today’s post, they are macarons. Y’all probably know how much I love macarons, so this was a golden moment. LOOK AT HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY ARE…

What a tasty treat to accompany my coffee as I went for a late afternoon walk. ☕️💕 When I ordered a frappucino through the Rare Earth Coffee drive thru, I decided to LIVE ON THE EDGE and when the barista asked through the crackle of the speakers, “Is there a particular macaron flavor you’d like for each?” My reply was, “Surprise me…!” Boy did I luck out because these were top notch… I ate ’em while I walked. 😎🔥

It got up to 107 degrees recently in good ol’ Fresno, California. 💕 Most residents absolutely loathe this characteristic of summer here in Central California, but I’m that weirdo who doesn’t mind triple digits. I don’t go walking when it gets deep into the 100’s though (excessive heat warnings and such), but this day it was a lovely 99 degrees. Noice!! 👍🏼

Fun fact: during my walk, I saw some vultures flying overhead.

I definitely am a bird watcher. I remember the first time I saw a raven when I was visiting Southern California last year, and I was in awe of the strange sound it was making (at that point, I didn’t know what kind of bird it was). I was walking into a coffee shop when I saw it, so eventually I sat down, mocha frappucino in hand, and googled it – indeed, it was a raven, and I’ve seen a few since where I live (now that I can differentiate them from crows!!!)

So I took a drive out of the city to the countryside after my walk and was lucky enough to spot a raven sitting alone on a wire fence along the freeway as I drove by. ❤️ Made me smile!! I love all birds, however, I’m particularly drawn to the raven so I was extra happy about seeing one.

I also stopped and took a photo of distant rain clouds in the mountains:

Hooray for a Saturday full of macaron tasting, frappucino sipping, bird watching, exercising and admiring nature. Quite a day!!! 🌸 Do you have a favorite bird? Let me know in the comments!

See ya next time!!
