"Hike" is a bit of an exaggeration since we were walking along a relatively flat gravel road, but last week I went out with the Friday Hiking Group from the Newcomer's Club.
Yes, I'm a week behind with this post!!
It was a windy morning and just a hair above freezing with some flurries expected, so the group leaders decided to keep it simple by taking a short walk along a road that followed Buffalo Creek close to town. (But to my dismay, no snow ever appeared!)

Being able to drive a couple of miles from the heart of town, park and then just get out and walk is quite a change from our old life in EBR parish.
About 15 of us walked along and visited and it made for a pleasant morning.
I admired this small house with its copper roof, red siding and inviting stone steps leading down to the waters edge.
The supply of canoes and kayaks along the other side of the house probably meant that the steps got a lot of use in nice weather.
I need to start hoofing it on my own two feet more often and relying less on Cloud's four hooves to carry me along. We only went about 4 miles and yet my legs were sore the next day!
