I’ve been walking with my husband on the Pennypack Trail this week. Each morning before he goes to work we have gone out and gotten in some miles. Why are we doing things this way? Because it is really hot right now – 95+ F during the day – so we want to go early and beat much of the heat.
We’ve been covering the same section of trail this week – between Welsh Road and Byberry Road, the upper half. This side is almost 100% in the shade and runs beside the water. Once again, we are thinking cool.
I’ve left tiles all week. I admit to a little confusion about which day I set down which tiles. My computer was out sick for a few days and I didn’t get to organize the photos in my usual manner. So – I’ll do my best. Here are the tiles and where they went.
June 30: oops, these are little clay rocks, not tiles. On a rock by the trail.
Also June 30. Set on a bench at the memorial for the train crash that ocurred here in winter, 1921.
July 2 – yellow tile on a ledge. It’s not easy to see (bottom photo, look to the left side). Sometimes I like to give the art a challenge…
July 2 – Dark tile on a bench.
More July 2 – Tile on a bench. I particularly like this bench because of the sentiment expressed and the lovely contemplative location.
More July 2. I’m pretty sure some of these just mentioned must have been from July 1, but, well, it will always be a mystery.
July 3 – Tile on a ledge. I often use this location. It seems made for display.
July 3 – this item is not one of mine but I participated in its life. Look. See that little red bit (the helpful arrow was not there in real life. I just happened to notice a spot of red and had to look and see what it was.)
It’s a little rock painted red with some gray sections. I looked it over, admired it, and gave it a ride a little further down the trail.
I’m going to wait and see what happens. I may bring it home, but I thought I’d let others decide if they want it before I just grab it.
July 4 – The trail was very crowded today on the holiday. Never a time when people were not passing. Still, I managed to set down one tile near this bridge.
My husband does a great job as a spotter!
OK, that’s it for now. As for who is still in place on the trail and who has been taken home, I am mixed up. I will say that more than half are already gone, including all the clay rocks.
Until the next time…
