It’s hard to find words to describe a day like today, so I’ll let the photos do the talking.

We set out to do a kayak trip from Barton dam down to Gallup park on the Huron river. It was a gorgeous day. We spotted so many animals– even a hawk with babies trailing behind, and a heron in flight. They were too quick to catch with my camera, but there were plenty of other subjects on which to focus.

March Fourth!

Simon on our hike

My academic advisor says she loves this date on the calendar because it’s also an order– march forth!
Today Simon and I did just that, and took a hike through one of our favorite parks while Justin did a training run. He’s planning to do another race this spring– either a half or full marathon– and Sime and I tag along when he does his runs and we do a more leisurely hike.

It’s still a big cold here– icicles under the bridge!

The Great Outdoors

in the park

Lately J has been very interested in playing disc golf. Did you know there are a ton of different types of discs you can buy for different types of throws? Me neither!

Well, now I do– and I love tagging along to play disc golf because it takes us out to a bunch of gorgeous parks in the area. Disc golf is like taking a hike and play a game all at once! It’s a nice excuse to get outdoors for a few hours. The light was beautiful at the park this afternoon, and I snapped a few photos while we played. I hope this feeling of calm and relaxation sticks with me all week!
