Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings house and farm yard a National Register of Historic Places -listed in 1970. If you are not familiar with her, she wrote The Yearling. I was so impressed with her. Had we been alive at the same time, I bet we would have been best friends!
While in the area I stopped at Paynes Prairie. Not a national park but a state park of Florida. I was excited to visit this place because it has bison, wild horses and a bald eagles nest! I was able to get a photo of the nest but not the eagle. I would loved to have caught them in flight! It was a dreary day with intermittent showers but occasionally the clouds would hold their water and allow me to snap a couple of shots. I am trying to learn the art of capturing a refraction in drop of water. I was able to snap two, but they're my first two. I expect to get better with the next outing!
This week is National Park Service Week. Grab your Timberland's and find a trail! Don't forget if you can't find a trail, make your own!
I am happy to report that, depending on where I stand on my scale I have lost somewhere between 28-38 pounds. I have not changed my diet yet, and I'm sure that if I could give up my sweet tea, or maybe Frosty Flakes I could lose more. But I'm not one to turn lose of things, or deprive myself! HAHA! If you have a couple of hours this week, find a trail. It's much easier to endure than running, or walking a treadmill, or even walking the block! Have fun, stay safe and let me know how it's going for you.
