Girl 1 at pond

It wasn’t raining this morning, so the girls and I took a lovely walk in the woods near a pond close to the house. There are a lot of trails, some lovely views of the pond, and some beautiful flowers that had grown in the rain. Of course, the whole area was very, very, very green after 3 weeks of rain!

When we approached a creek, LG said, “This the dangerous part! Dun, dun, dun!” We walked across the creek on some well-positioned stepping stones, and accomplished a walk without any injuries! (knock on wood)

Other high points were trying to figure out why there is a sewer manhole cover in the middle of the woods, having some lovely dogs come up to be petted, eating some Backyard Bbq Chips and Sea Salt & Vinegar chips in the middle of the “horse circle” and on a big rock, playing with walking sticks, walking on a beach, seeing several teepees/lean-tos made out of sticks, watching the ducks at another pond, and then finally looking in at a boatyard and spying Lapstrake and Edge-Joined wooden boats being repaired.

Some days are lovely, even when they aren’t perfect! (Even when I forget the camera and I’m left with blurry cell phone shots!)

And then when we were two blocks away from home, it started to rain again. Ugh! I’m hoping for at least some sun this weekend!
