Travel Tuesdays: A World of Beauty, Charm, and Adventure

My reflection and a submerged frog.
As you know, I've been totally immersed in the wood frog migration around here. I haven't been traveling anywhere far- just hiking the mile and a half round trip from my house to watch those frogs do their thing. Truthfully, I've gotten behind in my blog schedule because I've been so invested in observing and photographing the frogs.

Today, I even saw an otter. An otter! That's the first time I've seen one in that pond, though my dad said he saw one there about 20 years ago.

Usually I prepare my "Travel Tuesdays" posts in advance and schedule them to post automatically. Alas, I have nothing in the queue today. I was feeling guilty about it- I have a blog and a schedule to follow, after all. Then I thought of it this way... aren't I doing exactly what I'm encouraging you to do with your kids? Get outside! See the world! Connect with nature!

And so, I won't share any travel adventure stories today. Instead, here's a travel quotation that fits with my wood frog excursions:

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharlal Nehru 1889-1964

Boy have my eyes been open this week! (And my ears. And my nose.) If the wood frog migration eventually settles down, I'll be back with a regular Travel Tuesdays post next week. If not, you might need to send a search party out to find me.

What nature adventures have you had this week? The weather in the Northeast has been amazing. How about in your little corner of the world?
