My name is David Hoffman. I teach English and journalism at Averett University, but I have two side interests - writing and photography. I also enjoy walking daily with my English setter, Sadie, and my wife, Elizabeth, on the Danville, Virginia, Riverwalk. As a novice to studying nature, I am fascinated by the slightest facets of the great outdoors, but most of my pictures are of birds - I don't know a lot about them, but I am learning more and enjoying taking pictures of them daily. I also take pictures of plants, other animals, and insects. All pictures posted for each day were taken on the day of my blog entry.

(APRIL 10, 2010) During this time of year there are splotches of purple, blue, yellow and green in the woods and in the fields of the Riverwalk. This morning I saw a bluebird staking claim to his bird house and a couple of swallows flitting about before landing on the rung of a large pole at Dan Daniel Park. There were also the purple, blue and yellow flowers surrounded by the lush green foliage of Spring.

This morning we walked from Dan Daniel Park to Angler's Park. We enjoyed the colors of nature, but at Angler's Park there were multi-colored shirt on the large field as a rugby tournament was being held. Sadie was humbled by a large black lab (about twice her size held back by a lady with a Cornell t-shirt) and wanted to chase the strange looking ball the ruggers (don't know if that is a word, but I may have just made it up - it sounds right, though) were carrying and kicking a football shaped ball to score points in this very rough game where there are few pads and the object is to get the ball to the other end no matter what happens. The game is continuous, and I noticed three rescue squad vehicles lined up ready to take care of any broken bones or cuts or any other medical care needed in this very physical game. We stood and watched for a half hour, spending some of that time talking with friends who were working there with the Rotary Club and the Parks and Rec. dept. It was a perfect day for any outdoor activity.

It was another great day on the Riverwalk.
