It was a perfect day for a walk in the woods. Everything smelled so fresh, green and wonderful. We didn't expect to be out for so long, but I'm so glad we were! It simply was to beautiful of a day to spend indoors!
"Want to go for a walk?" my Faithful Sherpa asked while making breakfast. Yup, he makes me coffee and breakfast every morning, I know...I'm spoiled!
I love going for walks. I ask my Faithful Sherpa if he wants to go on a walk all the time, but he typically says no.
But in his defense, I usually ask him after work, after he sits down on the couch, tired from his day. Of course he'll say no!
But this time he asked.
"YES" I shouted, as if he were asking me to marry him again. "lets go!"
It was slightly overcast outside, and halfway down our hill, or Cardiac Hill as our neighbors call it, I stopped, wondering out loud if I should turn around and get my sun glasses.
"I'll be ok. We're only walking the loop."
"The loop" is a 3 mile walk down our hill, around the back side of town, thru downtown, and back up Cardiac Hill. Typically its a 45 minute walk. But we are not typical people, by any means!
There's a lot of logging going on during the first portion of our walk. We couldn't tell if someone was clearing their lot for a new house, or if the local logging company is cleaning up the woods.
Logging leaves a lot of tree stumps around. They make perfect seats if you are out walking but you have to remember to lay something on top of them. or else, you'll have a sticky bottom the rest of the day. Just sayin...
I love the colors of the stumps that are left behind. Beautiful ombre rings. Mother Natures Colorways.
Our walk ended up taking 2 hours!
But that's life in a small town. Although it looks like a quiet road, everyone was out that day. Some were out for a drive. Some were getting ready for a trip abroad.
We stopped and peaked into the window's of empty storefronts, and businesses for sale (http://bit.ly/2mQP9ss) and spent the rest of our walk home dreaming of what we would do if we owned them.
My Faithful Sherpa's grandmother, Mary Meri, used to say that you dream your way into things. I going to keep dreaming, because you never know what will happen!
