It was a gorgeous day here in the Seattle area! I was lucky enough to spend a good part of the day with Meno. She drove us to a beautiful area to the east that I haven't had the chance to explore before. We went for a hike. Now, I am not talking a gentle stroll around a park. It was a real, honest-to-god hike in a woodsy area complete with lush greenery, trees and a view that takes your breath away. Speaking of taking my breath away, I am in such sorry shape these days. I was winded for a good portion of the time. I need to work my way up to this trail, as I want to return, and make it to the lake. Meno is in top condition and strode uphill easily. I will aspire to her level, though it may take me years to get there! It was so good to spend time outdoors, getting to know Meno better. She has a great sense of humor (if you haven't read her blog you need to check it out.) We ended the hike by getting a cookie. What a perfect morning it was!
