Goin' on a bear hunt...or just a hike!

Remember the swamp? This is it, live and in person. Yuck. Be the river, be the river, be the river... you can do it... (my new mantra)... first in changes was to take more opportunities as they arise. I had to work last night and a couple of friends were in the shop... G mentioned wanting to go to one of the local parks to break in his new boots... K was also there and we'd talked about doing something this weekend so... off we went early this morning. We spent about 3 hours or so hiking 5 miles around the park. It was a *gorgeous* day! 84 degrees and sunny! It was really windy later in the afternoon but we had a great time, couldn't have asked for better weather. I brought my appendage, while K brought her dog Turbo. :) Turbo is Nola's favorite of all of K and L's dogs.
G took us on a new trail, which was nice (I like to stick with the familiar so see, yet another change!)... we ended up at the beach and had a blast watching Turbo and Nola run around in the sand.




Back at the visitor's center we checked everyone for ticks... Turbo had one, K had another. Thankfully, me, Nola, and G were clear of any and all bugs. Whew.


Nola came home and went straight to her crate (very odd for her). I later found her here... the camera was obviously no longer welcomed... oh well. Sleepy, grumpy, and just plain worn out will do that to anyone.

Off to the bookstore to see what Easter books they may have on sale... then hitting up the fabric store before coming back home to collapse.

Anyone going to Good Friday service? I'm skipping tonight but will plan on Easter vigil tomorrow evening.

I like keeping to the same routes to. But, I really sometimes love when my husband makes me change my route. You find out some rally cool stuff like your beach. However sometimes you find out that your old path was just fine.

What great photos.
No Good Friday services for me this year either. We'll be there early tomorrow though.
