A fresh air tour is just what we needed after two days of being indoors doing barn hunt. On the way home Saturday, Mom stopped and took us for a half hour walk. She says she feels like she smells like straw and rats, so she wants to air herself out as well as us.
It was later in the day, which means we had the trails all to ourselves, which we love! Well, that is kind of a lie. Those pesty squirrels were racing around in the trees. It was really quite exciting watching them.
Mom used to live next to this lake, years ago. She was amazed at how big some of the trees have gotten. I look super small next to this one!
We went down on the fishing pier to have a look at the lake. It was frozen, but with the warm weather, the ice is definitely not safe to walk on. You can’t really see it, but there is a big snowman out on the lake. It is just to the left of my head, but rather blurred out.
Olivia had never been on this walk before, so she was super busy sniffing and looking at everything.
At one point, we got to cross over the lake on the wooden bridge. Lots of the lakes in this county have wooden bridges. They look nice in wooded areas.
The fresh air tour did us all some good. Not only did we air ourselves out, we got our blood moving, and our brains engaged. Who knows what my deal was in this photo. My tongue is sticking out, and I look like I am about to fall over! Walks are always a good thing, whether they are long or short!
