|What a blessing to be able to walk here every morning|
✼ ✼ ✼ ✼
Up ahead by the barn a black and white cat was crossing the street. Can you spot it? It hopped into the corn field when I got close.
I was walking along and the only thing I heard was my feet on the pavement. I stopped and listened to the quiet. So peaceful - I heard birds singing and mourning doves cooing and a rooster off in the distance.
A cow stopped eating to look at me through the fence. This could have been another 'Good Fence' picture.
Another walk to enjoy.
I walked 6.2 miles.
✼ ✼ ✼ ✼I made pancakes for breakfast because we needed extra energy for kayaking today. We left soon after breakfast and this time went to the Youghiogheny River Lake with our kayaks. Part of it is in Pennsylvania which is where we put our kayaks in because we knew there was a boat ramp there. It runs down into Maryland too. This is a big place and we paddled 2 hours up part of it and 2 hours back. We had a break where we pulled up on shore and had lunch which was a couple of sandwiches that Ken made us.
In the morning it was very nice. Just a few boats passed and it was fun getting in their wake and going up and down with the little waves. On the way back there were quite a lot of boats going by and we had to be aware of what was going on. It was not quite as relaxing though we did thoroughly enjoy ourselves.
Some pictures of our paddle down the river.
Of the three places we've been so far our favorite is the first place, Savage River Reservoir.
Now, I'm ready to just sit back and maybe read a little and later watch a little television and have a bowl of ice cream.
Hope your day has been a happy one.

Everything has beauty,
but not everyone sees it.
