Time for this week’s Which Way Challenge fromΒ Cee’s Photography.

 

Here’s my take on it:

On four wheels:

On four legs:

On a trail:

On the down slide:

No matter which way, a designated driver can come in handy:

 

My songs of the day are:

“Watching The Wheels” by John Lennon

“Burnin’ It Down” by Steve Earle

“Four Sticks” by Led Zeppelin

“Legs” by PJ Harvey

“Wheels” by Foo Fighters

“Mud Slide Slim” by James Taylor

“Four Women” by Nina Simone

“Backwards Down the Number Line” by Phish

  1. The one with the dog on the beach – wow, the way the water looks! Stunning!

    • Thanks, Doc. That’s actually not truly a beach, it’s actually a giant sand bar on the Apalachicola River. There’s another just up-river from this one that’s even bigger. πŸ˜ƒ

      • They really are. Can beach the boat and explore or slide down the slopes. They’re huge. πŸ˜ƒ

      • The sand is a long way from the ocean! How did that happen?

      • Actually, that river empties into Apalachicola Bay, and this dunes are just up stream from the delta. It’s brackish water for a couple miles upstream, but these dines are only a mile or so up from the bay.

      • Aha. I don’t know my geography!

      • Hahaha! Well, you’re not wrong in assuming it may be away from the coast. The headwaters originate up in Georgia. The oyster population in Apalachicola Bay has been greatly affected by water usage from Atlanta and runoff from farms between there and the bay. It’s a beautiful river, but it’s abused by the masses, inadvertently I suppose. There’s a great organization that tends to it and lobby’s for it, Apalachicola Riverkeepers. But, the bigger Atlanta gets, the more negative affects will occur downstream. Hope they enjoy their green lawns in those overcrowded suburbs. πŸ˜•

      • Ugh. Isn’t that a shame? Who decided lawns were such a great idea anyway? People can be so oblivious to the havoc they wreck on natural resources.

      • Yep. Drives me nuts. That said, my “lawn” is a couple of acres, but I don’t water it! If it gets dry, oh well. And rain barrels for flowers and veggies.

      • Neither do we. And it’s mostly weeds anyway. I want to get a pet goat!

      • Hahaha! That’d do the trick. Of course, you may look out one morning and see it on top of your car or eating your garbage can, but they’ll now some grass. πŸ˜ƒ

    • Thanks a bunch. I wish I were there right now. Interesting fact: the pic is from a nature preserve called Springers Point, on Ocracoke. The water there? Called Teach’s Hole…and where he (Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard) was caught and killed. Legend has it, after he was killed, and beheaded, they threw his body overboard….and the headless trunk swam around the boat 3 times. I call bullshit on the legend, but a cool story nonetheless. πŸ˜ƒ
