Tammy - Alberta - 8:30 to (I Don't Remember When!) PM Last Night

Regrets for not posting these last night, but who takes their laptop camping?! Even if it is just in Mom and Dad's back yard! ;D

That's right, my sister and I spent yesterday "camping" (and doing laundry -- hey, we're young! We'll still use Mom's washer and dryer!) in our home town; I thought it would be a great opportunity to get out on a Creatively Fit walk! (I've been a writer on this blog for some time, I just haven't gotten to writing here! New job, and all kinds of other excuses ... ) So, I grabbed my camera, and we were off! We decided to walk down the tracks, because we used to love walking them growing up.



We got to the tracks, and first thing, noticed all the strange, never seen (by us) plants!


Seriously, what are these?! Do any of you know?!

After admiring the "weeds" a short time, we walked. And found all kinds of things:




Thanks for coming along!

(And if anyone wants to let me know how to do those cool collages, I'd love to know, so I can save some page scroll!)

Great shots Tammy! Love the journey down the tracks. The plans are really lovely, but I am at a loss for what on earth they may be. Perhaps we need to conduct a bit of research.

As for the collages, we use Picassa that we downloaded from the Internet. It is a free program that allows you to store, edit, and enhanse your photos. I love it! Give it a try and see what you think.

We are so glad you are here! Looking forward to your future walks.

Your pictures are fabulous! Isn't it incredible how the ordinary becomes extraordinary on a creatively fit walk!
Can't wait to see more from you!
Have a great night:)

WOW, great pictures! Sorry, I don't know what plants those are, but they are pretty!

I am looking forward to getting my schedule back on track next week. So I hope that on Monday night I will have some photos to share! Til then!

The photos are great. You can do collages on Picknic.com for free.

Interesting pictures. I don't know what those plants are, but we have them here in Indiana. I love the interesting things you found on the railroad bed.

Hi Tammy! Welcome to the team! I loved your train tracks picture, and the plant really was interesting :) I do my collages using powerpoint, but I think most people use picassa.
Glad you're with us!!

Hi Tammy! The track photos are great. I have 2 boys who both looooove trains! The one with the little daisy-like flowers growing out of the rocks is my favorite. You must have really had your eyes peeled while you walked! :)
