Not running so much has freed up a fair amount of time to pursue other past times such as camping, hiking, biking, gardening and volunteering at the weekly races in Lynn Woods. It's also allowed me to check off a few long-standing items on the honey-do list. Still, the list just seems to grow longer each year.
Base camp at Mt. Desert Narrows
The ocean was about 20 yards from our tent.
The ocean breeze did a good job of keeping the mosquitoes at bay.
Watching the sun set.
We got to witness this every evening.
Off to hike Cadillac Mountain.
Up and away.
Taking a look behind.
But this is where we're heading.
From here these islands look like stepping stones.
Closing in on the summit.
We stopped smiling after we realized we had to hike back down to our car.
Biking on the many miles of fine carriage roads in Arcadia National Park.
These gravel carriage roads are in better condition than most of the roads in Massachusetts.
A tranquil pond.
And rushing water.
Taking a break at Eagle Lake.
This is a good place to start your hike around Eagle Lake.
Back home tending to the salvias and celosias.
An osteospermum draped swan.
It's a yellow rose but it ain't from Texas.
Yes, I've been keeping busy but damn, I'd rather be running.
