Today was cold and rainy. I didn't even swim in the lake once. After spending most of the day reading, talking, playing speed scrabble, and doing a few household chores, I did get out of the cottage for a while, though. Dad and I drove over to Williams Bay and took a soggy walk through the Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy.
(1) I'd brought my camera, which is waterproof so it would have been fine in the rain. Part of the trail was lined with hundreds and hundreds of black-eyed susans. Stunning.
(2) That we'd brought apples to eat. Hiking with Dad in chilly weather, tromping through fields and woods, reminded me of all the walks we took as a family when I was a kid growing up in New England. Especially in the fall, when we'd bring a stash of Macintosh apples to eat on the trail.
(3) We'll get back to sun and summer tomorrow.
