The sun was shining and we were able to just walk and talk and like I said, unplug from the madness. Recharging and getting outside is so important for your mental health; we both needed it. As we walked we spotted a Northern Flicker and a Hermit Thrush. I successfully snapped a photo of the Thrush but the Flicker was just too quick for me. I was also standing in mud when I spotted him so I was distracted by my muddy sneakers...(I am not a fan of mud you know!) We also saw several turtles and I had my first butterfly sighting of the season. Now that's my type of therapy!

Oh what the fresh air can do...
OK I am back to my happy place after yesterday's rant. After watching the happenings in our country and dealing with the build up of pressure and disappointment the world can sometimes bring I find it necessary to go and unplug for awhile. Today Steve and I took a drive over to one of our local parks and went for a walk. Rockwood Park is only 15 minutes away and has a really cool educational nature center and many trails to explore. You can take a paved trail or be more adventurous and take the gravel ones that are less traveled. We decided on both.
