City Day

It’s been one of those Sundays where I wanted to do something different – and I have not been downtown (except for shopping at Thrifty Foods) since I arrived back three weeks ago today.

Can you believe it’s been three weeks? There are times each day, especially in the mornings, when all of this feels utterly surreal. That I actually ever left and this isn’t just a continuation of my life. That I actually came back and I’m not going to wake up in the Koots tomorrow. Most of all, that almost five years (Oct. 5 will be 5) with Simon are over. I cherish my memories.

But here I am and it’s all real.

So, after lunch Abby and I headed downtown. We walked for almost two hours: the entire waterfront, pausing to take photos. In fact, we didn’t really walk – we ambled. And I understood that one of the things I love here is being close to the ocean.

And I had fun with the camera today – my gosh, a 30x zoom. That heron was very far away.

We’ve had to push back the Auger Point by two days – weather. And now the forecast has changed again to include showers on Friday.

Damn. Not pushing it back any farther. If we get a few showers, we’ll have to deal with it.

So I’m going to head to Maple Mountain tomorrow for the sake of my back. I need to keep moving it. It’s getting better – but slowly.

Just so long as it’s good enough for crawling into a tent at night by the time we get going…

  1. So glad you are content again. Starting over is tough. I did notice your math is off. Your first hike with Simon was in September of 2015. That’s almost 4, not 5. Be well!

    Ah – but it was Oct 5 that we counted as our “anniversary” – it was our first kiss 🙂
