It seems when these themes are announced, I have such grand plans.
This month didn’t work out as planned!
During this time of the year, my work is pretty packed. So much to do, and so little time. That usually means working well beyond my normal hours. That proved to be the same this year.
That meant, I didn’t get outside and do a lot of “play” things. I did hit up some baseball games, but I haven’t taken a lot of photos at games this year.
Alas, we must go with what we have and find a way to shape the story we give, right?
My interpretation this month was simple – things I took while out on walks or hikes. Though both of these activities are with exercise and health in mind, the reality is it’s a bit of play, too. It’s nice to get outside and see things. When hiking, a lot of times it’s for geocaching when I do it, so that’s also play.
So, let’s get underway with this month! My five are below!
1. The view
Earlier in June, I hosted a geocaching event that was about a half-mile hike. This is one of the views on the way out.
2. Old can
After the event, I had the chance to do some caching. One spot was a cache I had found before (alas, we couldn’t find it this time), but on the way up the side of a hill, I found this. Always interesting to me to see old cans and bottles out like this.
3. So many signs
This is right near a trail where we were hiking for caches. I guess we should stay out of this area?
This is the municipal parking lot in my town. Down on the right is a small park (yes, I have a cache here) and a basketball court. The lot, court and other areas have been under construction. So, for now, there’s no play down that way!
5. Ball field
As out for a walk this month, I saw this carved out baseball field at a local spot. Note, there are regular ball fields here already, but I have a feeling this may have been for a practice or something of a local old-time baseball team.

And for those of you who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment (here, too!).
Let’s continue to grow this challenge and have a strong community. Come back and check out the others who link later on, too!
NOTE: I set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
