Something's Afoot

Kim and I just returned from walking at the Alpharetta Greenway this morning. We agreed to meet at 7:00am...SEVEN on a Saturday morning? Am I crazy? It was terrific. The air was crisp and slightly "Fall-ish" as we made our way through the twists and turns of the peaceful trail.

As we made one turn, a deer appeared in the middle of our path so we paused. As we suspected, two or three more deer followed and eyed us as curiously as we stood in reverence. We were, afterall, in their home in the middle of the woods so we decided to give them their space. Soon, they made their way back into the forest and off we went.

As we walked, the smell of the honeysuckle vines perfumed the air with a sweetness only Spring can bring. It was such a pleasant atmosphere and all the other walkers, joggers and cyclists we came across seemed to be in a really good mood. 5 miles later, Kim and I returned to our car invigorated and ready to face the day.

Look out Saturday, here I come...
