A bit of variation from day to day, even in this scene. I wouldn’t have noticed it, if it hadn’t been for a rather low count on my pedometer. Even after the walk around Lynghaug pond (see my Flickr photos), I still hadn’t racked up much more than 4000 steps. After one round around Ortuvann, I was in the 6000’s. (I was off work so didn’t have all the walking there to help my count.)
I debated whether or not to walk some more. I had been out for over an hour and although I was no longer cold (nor sweaty), I was tired and rather annoyed that my pedometer didn’t show more. I made myself go one more round around Ortuvann, and I’m glad I did. A woman was feeding the ducks in the water, and they would chase each other around, splashing, trying to take the food out of each others mouths. The swan had moved to this side of the lake and was watching the going-ons. It occurred to me that the swan was actually trying to learn. I still haven’t been able to determine what kind it is.
Today’s pedometer count will stop below 9000. I’ll try to get over 12000 tomorrow. Two walks with extra rounds around each ponds should do it.
