After Easter lunch with my family David and I headed to the canal for a quick walk. It’s one of our favorite places. There’s a new trail we’re going to take next time and hopefully soon we can make it out to some of the areas further down the Savannah River. I plan to run the canal more this summer–it’s easier on my legs, cooler, and much more beautiful than other routes I take. One thing that bums us out is the trash we see and our plan is to bring along supplies to clean up a bit next time. We’re proud of this city and want to show it.
Last week David and I enjoyed our final Thursday morning off together by exploring the canal and browsing our favorite plant store. We had intentions to make it a weekly thing, but that lasted a whole three weeks as I start a new job today and my Thursday mornings are tied up. At least we enjoyed it while we could. My camera battery died shortly after arriving (typical), so most of these were taken with my iPhone.
I’m so glad David and I took a few moments to relax despite our busy schedules this weekend. We lounged on the hammock in the backyard (something we don’t do nearly enough), marveling at the nature around us, the sun on our faces. There’s a peacefulness to that sort of quiet and you appreciate the things in front of you so much more. It’s good to remind myself to slow down sometimes.
