I had to do some thinking about why I was blogging. I guess it's a natural temptation to try and "grow" the blog, get comments and have an audience. But that's NOT why I started recording my thoughts and activities. It was primarily for me in order to remember this period of my life and stay in touch with friends and family.
A very wise son told me yesterday that I should "Just Post"; the blogging version of Nike's Just Do It. Dive in and not worry about trying to catch up.
So here goes.... a deep breath in,
a step to the edge,
and a post....
I'm still hiking with the Friday group through Newcomers but rain and travels have made me miss quite a few recently so I had to stop and catch my breath more times than I'd like to admit and I was sorer than I'd thought possible after the hike to the top of Short Top Mountain.
Without a doubt it was the hardest hike I've done lately.
When we reached the top there was a stone summit shelter nestled in among the boulders.
It was a hazy day with low clouds but the 360 degree views were worth the aching thighs that plagued me for two days post hike!
I'm a lucky person to live among this natural beauty.....
