Sandpoint Idaho Guardian of the Nights

I never tire of my early morning walks, with Halley, through the downtown streets of Sandpoint.  The quiet tranquility, with only the distant  clackity clack of a train,  allows one's mind to wander freely.   Also adding to the serenity is knowing you are safe, with the watchful eye from the Sandpoint Idaho Guardian of the Nights, while most are sleeping.

Good morning Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint -

Your post and details of the tranquil walk actually relaxed me. We normally try to walk every morning and evening. Sometimes we don't say a word rather just take in Mother Nature and all she offers.

"Guardian of the Nights" - I was just sitting here thinking that would be a great name for a Motorcycle Club!

Seriously however, that second picture above is very appealing!

I like the Guardians.

But I've got to agree, Myrl Jeffcoat has a really good idea.

Mark, that took me back to a very early walk through Reed College many many years ago, with my dog Butterscotch. It was if it was all ours--just the two of us--somewhat eery and magical. It was about 5am, and we came upon a home located on the college grounds, housing for students. I heard a lonely piano being played and it was like having my own private concert. A lovely memory, thank you!!

Hi Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint !! I like this post. And I really like that photo of the Guardian of Sandpoint Nights (and the others too). For me taking a walk clears the head and gets my creative juices flowing. There's something about being in motion that's so good for the soul!

Hello Rene Fabre .  I will have to wait for my walks to be as peaceful as they once were.  My little girl (sheer brut force) keeps me very alert to her possible shenanigans and darts here and there.  We do enjoy the early morning quiet though.  I am able to unleash her a bit more often that way.  Mark

Don, thanks for ll the pictures as i always like to see stuff like this in other cities. Many years ago i spent over 2 weeks working an audit in Post Falls Idaho. Is Post Falls close to where you are located?

Hello Robert (Bob) Gilbert .  You nailed it.  Close being relative I guess.  Post Falls is a neighboring city to Coeur D'Alene and Hayden to the west side.  Sandpoint is 47 miles north of Coeur D'Alene.  Have a great week ahead.  Mark

I love your pictures, Mark. I haven't taken to giving Lucky pre dawn walks, but it does sound like a nice way to start the day. I'm not that early of a riser. Although this morning, I was up and out by 7:30 and Sue and I ran our dogs. They love to play together.

Good evening Debbie Laity .  Ahhh "Lucky" is it.  I have been wondering.  Was that name for you or him or a combination?   Early morning is actually best for both Halley and I.  I am able to let her walk about without a leash.  She gets WAY to excited when she sees another dog.  Not too many people out and about that early in the morning.  Took a nice wald this morning as well and she had two hours of 'free' time.  Have a great week Debbie.  I trust all is well with you and Lucky.  Mark

Just wondering if you live downtown thus the early morning walks. I am still under the covers at that time but admire you for getting up and enjoying your day.
