Sunday was an absolutely gorgeous day. The temperature reached above 20 and the sun was shining. What a fantastic day to head out for a walk. Not surprising, many others had the same idea. Had I been on my bike, it probably would have looked like a club ride without the club.
We went out for a walk of a little over an hour. We got to see some lovely houses, some simple houses, and some houses which will be bulldozed to make room for huge condominium towers. We encountered “closed” parks and greenway trails that people were still using. We even found some wildlife.
I could wax lyrical about how great it was to get outside, but since most of us are in the same boat, you probably understand it in your bones and my words would fail to be any more precise. I should note that the weather hasn’t been this great this year. While winter was not a terrible beast, it did seem to hang around longer than anyone wanted and the weather has been cool.
After today, I completely forgot about that. Sadly, the weather forecast doesn’t expect it to happen two days in a row. Since I will be stuck inside working until well into the afternoon, I am going to pretend that I didn’t read that.
While the weather was great, the perfect moment was running across our fine feathered friend above. It barely moved when we went by–which was a far cry from the sharp veering that everyone, including us, did when encountering someone. We are all getting good at physically distancing ourselves.
