Dear Journal,

Nature continues to captivate and amaze me as I ventured along a different branch of the greenway today and encountered more intriguing wildlife.

I slowly made my way along the Greenway and caught sight of a water snake slithering gracefully through the clear waters of the Roanoke River. Its sinuous movements and sleek appearance were mesmerizing, and I couldn’t help but observe it from a distance, careful not to disturb its natural habitat.

The water snake glided effortlessly through the water, its body undulating in a graceful dance. Its glossy scales glistened in the sunlight, and I marveled at its ability to thrive in its aquatic environment. Sisto’s teachings about the delicate balance of ecosystems and the importance of every creature in the web of life echoed in my mind as I observed the water snake in its natural element.

As I continued my walk along the river, I was greeted by the cheerful quacks of a mallard duck (not haunted resin this time). I spotted a male with its vibrant green head and iridescent feathers, accompanied by a female with her more subdued plumage. They were swimming gracefully in the river, foraging for food and enjoying the peacefulness of the surroundings.
I watched the pair with delight as they dabbled and dived in the water, their playful interactions bringing a smile to my face. Their beauty and elegance were a testament to the wonders of nature, and I felt grateful to be able to witness such moments of pure serenity.

The Roanoke River and the greenway never cease to amaze me with their abundant wildlife and natural beauty. Each encounter serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of all living beings and the need to protect and preserve our natural world.

Yours in the Green,
