We have wondered in the past if we would take a walk of our own volition. One without a dog providing the impetus. Well, based on yesterday, I guess the answer is a resounding, “Yes!”
It was after lunch. The sky was a brilliant blue; the breeze balmy, and the temperatures hovering in the low 60’s. And, yes, it was February. In other words, a rare day in the middle of a New England winter.
Daisy had already had a walk and was curled up snoring on the couch. We thought about waking her, but decided against it. Daisy likes things to be her idea. Being roused from a deep sleep to take yet another walk had forced march written all over it. Not her thing!
So we headed out without her. Every now and then, we have to stop and be grateful for our surroundings, and for the good decision that caused us to retire here. Yesterday was one of those times! Here on the Cape, a walk can mean sand beneath our feet and blue water lapping at the shore. Always beautiful, but with the added bonus of quiet during the off season.
Another beautiful day on tap for today. It’s definitely grasp the moment time. The weather in New England, especially near the coast, can turn in a matter of hours. At the moment, Mother Nature is smiling. Time to get outside before that smile turns to a frown.
