Saturday Sunshine

The Earth Lodge
Me wandering aimlessly about
The lovely rays of sunshine
Our first glimpse of the swampy wetlands
Me and the daughter

Yesterday, the weather was BEAUTIFUL here...not too hot, not too cold- PERFECT. I was feeling pasty white, like the sun had not touched my skin in so very long, and still a little fragile, but frantic to get outside! The daughter and I decided to venture out into the world to seek the rays of the sun. We decided to go to a place called Ocmulgee National Park. This park is a memorial to the Native Americans that lived in this location and built these mounds for religious uses. The park is a long, winding path through the mounds that ends up on a path called the River Walk- a boardwalk through 800 feet of emergent wetlands.

This was a lovely way to spend our day! (Thankfully, I found frequent park benches on which I could rest when the walk became too much for me.) We took some nice photos, got some exercise, soaked in the sunshine, and found ourselves amazed at this place teeming with life. Spring certainly seems on the verge of bursting forth here!

Hope you enjoy these shots...and that your weekend weather has allowed you to do something just as nice!
