Back to walking this morning. No particular route today, just walked all over the place, some paths and some streets. I saw the fox, lots of bunnies and a deer. Nice and quiet walking early on a Saturday morning. I stopped for a short chat with Gertie while we sat on the bench.
I walked 6.2 miles.
When I got back from my walk Ken was washing his cars. I walked around front and watered all my plants. (Pam - I took your advice and water them each morning now.)
I made us pancakes for breakfast and then we headed out in Ken's nice shiny clean Corvette. Since it was such a nice day we took the roof off and went to a car show near our house. It was small but nice and I took some pictures.
Next we headed down the road some more and went to Downs Park which is right on the Chesapeake Bay. Walked down a couple of paths and found a nice place to sit on a deck over looking the water. We were glad that we brought some chairs with us because it was a perfect place to sit and relax. Ken brought along a sketch pad for a little drawing and I had some knitting with me to do.
There was on Osprey sitting on her nest near by out on a pole in the water and we watched her leave and return to the nest a couple of times. We saw at least one baby.
Not such a good picture because I had to zoom in.There is a freighter in the distance and the Osprey nest is on the pole on the left.A couple paddled by in a little boat.Here's looking through the deck fence where we were sitting.Home for awhile and then back out we went. This time to eat out at The Green Turtle. There are two of them near our house and we have always gone to the one by the mall but tonight we went to the other one. We were showed to a table, sat down and after a moment we looked at each and other realized neither one of us liked this place. It was dark and dreary. So we just got up, told them we had to go and went to the one by the mall where we enjoyed our dinner. Ken's line for doing something like this is, "We are the grownups, we can do whatever we like." I love that line!!
After a few hours at the park we left for home.
Home again and this time to stay for the rest of the evening. I'm about to go take a shower, get comfortable and then have my ice cream. Tonight the flavor will be Chocolate Cookies N Cream Supreme.
We surely did enjoy our day. I hope you enjoyed yours too.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
BTW - Remember those cookies I mailed to my Dad? I packed them well, not a one of them were broken! :-)
