|Our lovely walk with morning|
Finally! We woke this morning to overcast but not rainy skies, with peeks of sunshine coming through to bring seventeen of us ladies for a nice five- to six-mile walk on the trails south of Fairhaven. It was great to get back to a normal Bellingham winter environment. Last Saturday we didn't walk because it was icy and rainy, and the entire week's weather caused many to be housebound or at least unwilling to venture very far from home.
|The last of the snow|
We did see remnants of the recent snows, but these white patches are likely still here because of a snowplow having piled up the snow as the streets were cleared. That's it! I'm not sorry at all to see the last of this white stuff. I learned that on Thursday, exactly three people showed up for the two Senior Trailblazer hikes, one for the 8:00am hike (probably Al, the leader), and two at 9:00am (probably the leader and one other intrepid hiker). So I was reassured that I'd made the right decision.
Yesterday I went to my Friday yoga class, and it was crammed with people making up for missing their classes earlier in the week. We were packed in like sardines, with one fellow's feet almost in my face as we did a couple of the poses. I didn't mind a bit (they didn't smell), since we were all treated to a wonderful class. I walked out feeling great, once again.
And now the clouds are clearing off, with plenty of sunshine and warmish temperatures for the next few days. Life is good.
Yes it is! You have spring-like conditions! How wonderful!ReplyDelete
Great news, I know you have missed getting out with your hiking and yoga mates. A little snow is nice for a change, but only for a short while.ReplyDelete
Back to normal is good 😁
After the kind of weather you've experienced, I'd feel good when things clear up. Sometimes it's wise to stay home. Keep out of other people's way.ReplyDelete
The sun came up but was quickly covered with more clouds. No rain today, but cold and gray. I'm ready for sunny days.ReplyDelete
Now that is a walk I would enjoy. Not up the side of a mountain, scrambling over rocks and fighting the weather as you normally do. Bet it felt good to get out again though. Hope it stays nice for you.ReplyDelete
Glad all your snow and ice have melted.ReplyDelete
Hope the yoga dude made use of Odor Eaters!!! lolReplyDelete
Oh yes, this hike looks like a good one, compared to the icy/snowy post below. Wow. That seems unusual for your area to be hit with THAT amount of snow in the lower elevations, isn't it?
It looks good over there, and I am glad you are now back in the groove.ReplyDelete
Nuthin' like a little sunshine to make you feel that life is good!ReplyDelete
I do like yoga too! It's both energizing and relaxing at the same time..:)ReplyDelete
Aww your snow melted :(ReplyDelete
Sunshine does the trick!ReplyDelete
My kids are telling me it's still cold in the Midwest and the East coast. I don't think the snows are over for them. I'm glad you're getting a respite.ReplyDelete
