The morning walk went very well. Out the door on time and the feeling was good as we briskly marched down the road. It turned out to be a 2.5 miles day with one rest at roughly the middle point of the loop. The OFM was almost frisky when we got back to the Castle. In other words a major change from yesterday. Along the way we go this neat picture of a “long hired” toad stool growing from the hollow core of a downed tree.
At one point we stopped at a multi trail junction to get a pic of the trail signs. This is one of two major junctions of the many trails in the park.
From this point you can spend several more hours walking without retracing many of your steps. That is one good reason the OFM likes the walks in this area. It seldom gets boring.
The new magnifying head piece was good help this morning and proved to be very valuable in deciding none of the three colorings we thought were ready for showing are actually ready for showing. We were able to see so many numerous bad line connections and missed spots that we are giving each painting more time to get done properly now that the OFM can see the failures and fix them.
Lawlers Salad with shredded pork was supper with one serving left for later some day soon. The OFM has quit loosing weight so he needs to cut back some more on the food consumption. It will be a not easy task. With a little luck we will be back on track quickly and doing a better job of trying to have tooooo much fun.
