Yesterday was busy. I had errands and chores to do but still managed to squeeze in a hike between responsibilities and rain showers.
Sometimes it’s the fun things that we shoehorn in amongst responsibilities that mean the most.
Dark clouds hovered over Lake Hope when I arrived but there was no lightening and the system was moving through so I read a book in the car and waited it out.
I did get rained on a bit near the end of the hike but I didn’t mind. It was hot despite a decent breeze. Tree cover provided a good bit of protection but a few raindrops made it through and it felt amazing.
Afterward, I drove to another area of the lake to photograph the first water lilies in bloom. This guy hovered and landed, providing a quick opportunity to grab some pictures!
In all, it was a good day but my allergies are now acting up and I’ll pay for this adventure for a while. Nonetheless, it felt good to move and breathe fresh air and to be a kid again playing in the rain! Everyone should take a walk in a quiet forest on a rainy day once in a while.
