The temperature was 62 and sunny! I had to take advantage of it.
But walking around my neighborhood would not be enough for me today.
As much as I hate to do it,
I got in my car and drove to Lake Elkhorn - a small lake near my home.
This lake is near enough to walk to if I could do 90 minutes
and didn't mind walking alone through some isolated wooded areas (which I try to avoid).
The lake was filled with people today.
Including this old lady.
(Geez, you would think she could comb her hair and put on a little lipstick!!)
I especially loved seeing these 2 senior citizens sitting on the bench
that Meathead and I shared all the time when he was a puppy.
Seeing this lady with her little dog made me a little lonely for my grand dogs
who would have enjoyed a trip to the park
as long as it didn't include much actual walking.
I have always envied the folks who live in these townhouses
so close to the water's edge.
How lovely it would be to sit on the porch,
and knit or read a book,
while the world passed by.
This walking bridge has a lovely bench built into the side
where you can sit and read or just enjoy the view of the lake.
This man, it turned out, was doing neither.
He was playing a game on his cell phone.
This tree was filled with messages carved into the bark.
Hope L + R are still in love.
The walk today was worth the car trip!
