Candy and I saw this interesting thing while on our walk today where a tree is trying to envelope an iron wheel.
We navigated another way to to get to the overlook, going part of the way using old woods roads instead of the marked trails. That was a triumph. ( Here's a couple pictures taken at the overlook - of things you have seen before but now it is a new season... )
It was good to get out today.
In the alternate reality - the one that I had been planning since December of last year (but it got accidentally erased) - I would be arriving in Florida right about this moment, walking up to my sister, brother-in-law and niece and giving them a big hug. The best-laid plans of mice and men.
