Oh dear, I opened my mail to find a photo from my friend who has a large countryside hide-a-way where she goes fishing, riding and exploring. Isn’t this a little cutie .. I’ve never been in one, but I can imagine it can take you into a lot of places. I do remember with great fondness of a day out with a gal pal who has a couple of Jeeps, It was a few years back, well ok, maybe over 5 years.. but I can still feel the exhilaration riding the jeep over big huge boulders and then down the other side into a ravine… it was slow and easy, the human controlling the jeep as it slid and eased its way over the rough terrain. An adventure I treasure, that I’ll never forget.
It was a totally different way to see and explore the woodlands, and for sure they travel in areas, that now as a hiker I am not seeing. Someday, maybe in the fall, I’ll find out more about the other outdoor experiences, where other modes of outdoor fun is had.. I know there are clubs and special trails they go on, another mode of enjoyment I’ve only caught a glimpse of, but not seen or know anyone who has done it, is mud trials?? races?? I think they test their skills and vehicles driving in mud??
What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.Perfect Liberty 2021.16
Currently I’m caught up in watching a show about “catching the waves”.. yesterday I saw them doing white water kayaking in the Ottawa River, “running the rapids”. There are so many different ways to enjoy the outdoors, thanks Sharon for reminding me of that.
I love my circle of friends, I truly do, each is so unique and special in his/her own way, I can’t do it all, but through my friends I can experience so much more of the world around me. Sharing, caring, loving, all acts that make the world a better place.
