Exploring near the river

If you’ve been reading awhile you may have read that I’ve moved. It’s exciting, a little nerve wracking at first but hey, that’s life I suppose. Being in a new town and on my own I decided to make sure to pack my new camera (the really nice one I got for Christmas and used for those Arizona posts). 
 Anyway, I decided to use my first saturday here by exploring. It’s a beautiful campus, and it’s covered with a little bit of snow, not as much as last year, which I am perfectly fine with. So I can only assume it’s twice as pretty in the Autumn when the leaves are full of color. 
 My university is set on the river, which makes for some pretty nice photos. 
The weather wasn’t too cold, I did look ahead to check and see which day would be best to go. 

The water was so still, it was really pretty. 

I also wandered into a park, where there were twisting trees, it was also on the river. There were squirrels running across a branch and darted into a hole in the tree, they went too fast and I wasn’t prepared to catch a photo of them. 
After wandering the park, I decided to go down an older street. 

There was this cute little Fish made from scrap metal. I thought he was cute! Of course, he reminded me of my fish too. (Latte is currently enjoying his new life in college by the way.)
I did stop by a shop to grab a sweater that represented my university, as I actually had nothing, I’m not even sure why. But I am glad that I finally now have something.
The buildings on this street give it some character and actually make it look quite cute. 
There was also a little bear statue along the way. 
Isn’t he cute?

 After walking the length of the little shops that lined the street, the cold was starting to get to my fingers, though I didn’t mind much. I do live in Wisconsin after all, and it hasn’t been nearly as cold as last year, so I really shouldn’t complain!
 I did end up back on campus, spotting some ducks in the creek as I came up to a building. 

See what I mean when I say, I can only imagine how pretty it is in the beginning of fall or even spring and summer when the grass is nice and green. I really can’t wait to experience that. And besides, the sun would probably feel nice too. 

I finished off the walk with my usual route back up to the dorm room, up some stairs. By some I mean a lot. It’s a nice little walk back, and since I like doing things outdoors it was a nice break from homework and sitting in the room. 
It also looks incredible at night here, and I promise when the weather warms up, I will take some night time photos for you, because they really should be shared. 
I hope you like this post! Let me know what else you would like to read! 
Have you gone back to school now? If you have, how is it? Do you have any difficult classes, or really fun ones? 
I’d love to hear what you have to say in the comments!
Thank you so much for reading!
See you next time!
