Into the Woods

For many reasons we didn't make to the woods this Summer, and I was feeling especially in need of a visit this morning.
One major reason is that we've been spending too much time in front of the computer and tv, and the Younger has been showing signs of mental strain.

Today, however, he was happy to leave all electronics behind and join me as a wilderness explorer.
We took a walk down the Bruce Vento Trail, and stopped for a little lunch off the path.
It started to rain, and there were little streams criss-crossing the path as we went.
It's always energizing to me to spend some time with the birds, water, trees, chipmunks, sky and rocks of the woods.
It certainly helped me creep out of the funk I have been in for a few days.


Also, since I threw in a gratuitous cute photo of the Elder yesterday, here is a shot of the Younger to show that he has always enjoyed exploring nature.
Have a great Wednesday.

Sometimes a good 'ol walk in the woods is just the ticket - I think I could use one, too!
