Started out my morning with 60 min on the elliptical, then Mom and I went on a hike. We were going to go to the Farmer's Market but decided to go past the dog run to go see if the crocuses were out. It was a foggy morning, darkly overcast, catching a break from the non stop wind.
The lower trail below the off leash area was still quite muddy and damp:
We walked all the way around Peterson's Ravine, a place we don't often go to:
This is a rocky area with them scattered all over:
Love these huge moss covered rocks. We saw lots of crocuses eaither done or not opened up -Mom thinks it was too dark and cool for them to open up:
We went a little ways on a trail we have never been on, but had reached our turn around point:
Then we saw a freshly dug trail heading back and took it to see where it went, was unable to uplaod these ones. It simply lead back around to the usual trail we use to go up from the ravine:
We had gone exactly 10 km and took three hours to do it. It was rough up and down trail, and I could feel that I was not use to the climbing. It was a lovely, peaceful hike without the wind. We got home in time for lunch and then relaxed. I was a little disappointed we never went to the dog show, but it had changed locations, now on the other side of town whereas it had always been within walking distance of where Mom lives before. Don't know why the venue change. We also opted not to go to the Farmer's Market. She said we would do it tomorrow. But Sundays are lousy, limited hours and with very few vendors there.
The sky was so dark out, it was difficult to read so spent the day watching more movies, Fantastic Four II Silver Surfer and Earthquake, Hancock and then finally Perfect Storm.
As I so rarely get to movies, it was nice to see some. We had a brief thunderstorm and lots more rain. Supposed to continue to rain Sunday with only a high of 10 C (50F). Long range forecast says it will clear by the time I have to go home and warm up :P
Have a Super Sunday all..
