It was a stellar day. When Julie first suggested doing the Awesome Trail today, I thought, “Nah – I’ve got stuff to do…”
Really? My second thought was, “What could possibly trump a hike with Julie up the Awesome Trail?”
So we went and Paul came along, which was wonderful because I haven’t seen him in ages. We had a great time. The weather was as perfect as it can possibly get and we chatted and laughed and huffed and puffed our way to the top. We had lunch bathed in sunshine and decided that, yes, we would have to do another hike next Friday!
I heard my phone ring on the way down but knew that by the time I got my pack off and dug around to find it, it would go to voicemail. So I waited until we got back to the vehicles to check. It was Simon – just calling to say “I love you.”
