Weekend 104: Just in time

weekend104_7

Yesterday we went to see a day cabin on a local mountain. Such cabins are popular hiking destinations in the local areas. People can go into the cabin to rest, warm up and eat packed lunches, a day cabin does not have accomodation facilities. The hike was quite steep but not very long. We climbed upto 300 m above sea level while covering only 1.2 km distance.

The pass was through a farm which is currently occupied by a couple of calves ( though not new borns). I was bit scared as it was my first encounter with such a big animal. It went fine.

A family with kids was already there but there was plenty of space to keep social distancing  😀

We stayed there for sometime then continued towards another hike but after half an hour we gave up the idea and returned.  The next destination was at 600 moh and we didn’t have enough water and no snacks. My husband insisted to go back.

Sometimes weather decides to go against the forecast and it shows no mercy what so ever. It rained heavily for little more than half an hour.

Weekend 99: To heal

Sometimes we get busy in things we can’t bypass which means less time for hobby. I couldn’t get enough time to work on a post for last couple of days but all was for a good cause and so no regrets.

In the new normal, we try to maintain a rotuine of taking walk everyday. No hard exercising is possible as the gyms are still closed, a preferred choice is walking for atleast an hour ++.  Here are some images from our recent walks.

When there is silence,
Give your voice.
When there is darkness,
Shine your light.
When there is desperation,
Offer hope.~

We all have the muscle of creativity in our minds, but for it to consistently give great results it needs daily exercise.~ Yusuf A. Leingeweekend94_6

It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”~ John Joseph Powell (The Secret of Staying in Love)
