walks/ hikes - grief - boats a float

Sunday, December 15, 2013

How do you determine the difference between a hike and a walk?
I hiked/ walk around the pond - gulf course meanderings among streams, tributaries, creeks and so many types of trees and brush. Lots of unknown identities of birds fluttering about eagles - gulls flying or perched along my route.
Just me and my dog - walking / hiking at a fast pace in the pouring rain.
Loving life........

This has turned out to be a sad day.. my uncle has passed away – my mothers brother. I think he was 73. His health has not been good these past years. This week he was dealing with pneumonia to add to his COPD health issues. Good bye uncle Keith.

The Squamish Yacht Club is having their Christmas Carol Cruise this evening! 
It kicks off at 6pm Get the best view at Nexen Beach!
We were there at 6 but they did not start till almost 6:45 and there was NO caroling that we could hear.
However I am still glad we went – I enjoyed my self ..

    Condolences on the loss of your uncle.

    The lighted boats pics are lovely. Brought back memories of all the lighted naval vessels and other ships in Halifax harbour at Christmas - a beautiful sight!

    I determine the difference between a hike and a walk by the ground I'm walking on and often by my footwear. You actually take longer steps if you're wearing hiking shoes (we were told by someone trained in footwear knowledge), and the terrain I walk on is not at all even- so therefore I'm hiking when I walk on it.
    I'm so sorry for the loss of your uncle. Praying for comfort for you.
    It's too bad you didn't get to hear that singing you went for, but it's good you enjoyed your time there.
