Onward to more happy things, shall we?
On Sunday evening, after Joel and I drove the 7.5 hours back from Charlotte, we decided to take a stroll through a nearby park that we've been meaning to check out. A walk through a park is much more enjoyable than 45 minutes spent on the elliptical, wouldn't you say?
The park offered nice, leisurely walking paths through the woods, allowing us to forget that we really live in a major metropolitan area (score!).
Though Joel was a little unhappy when we came upon the marshland to find out that they do not allow fishing.
Even so, this deck was so nicely built and well maintained. It was clean and clear of debris, and while walking through the marsh, it confirmed our suspicions as to where all those mosquitoes are coming from! We pretty much cannot step out our front door without getting bit (our condo's property lines the perimeter of this park).
You can also see that here in the northern part of Virginia, our leaves are just now starting to change colors. I just love the fall :).
We really enjoyed ourselves here, and look forward to taking advantage of other area parks before it gets too cold to tolerate the outdoors.
|cat tails are so neat to me, and not just because I <3 Charles so much & they |
somewhat remind me of him :)
Tomorrow (Friday) is also Joel and I's official weigh in for our first week on WW. We started together officially on Monday, and so our weigh in week this week is short. However, after tomorrow, we will be weighing in weekly on Friday's.
Have a great weekend!
