Nothing Planned
What a day! Jim and I both spent several hours at the computer. We took a break for the hot tub mid-morning. It felt extra good today because the weather was cooler. It rained most of the night ... must have been a bit of a cold front. Mid-afternoon we had an appointment with the management here to discuss Wi-Fi and Coach Connect. The meeting went real well.

Then ...

Then ...

Jim said, "I think we should take the kayak out on the lake for a paddle".


It was BEAUTIFUL. It took me back all the way to childhood in Alaska because we were always on the water there. My family had river boats, lake boats, and planes on floats. All my travels around the country since college have been boatless! That never dawned on me until tonight when we paddled out to the middle of the lake and then just floated. Enjoying the sights and sounds. Herons flying overhead. Frogs croaking in the marshes at the edge of the lake. The swoosh of our paddles through the water. The temperature was perfect. The air made me want to take lots of deep breaths. Then came the sunset! My words can't possibly do it justice, so I googled the Internet for a 'Sunset Poem'. I couldn't find exactly what I had in mind, this will have to do :-)

"Good Night Sun
It's been fun
See ya soon
Say Hi to the Moon"
