Well, Friday was the day I had been hoping for, sunny, and 64 at lunchtime. Hallelujah! We hiked on the Campground Trail, to the Armadillo Trail, to the Middle Lake Overlook. The lake was gorgeous with the sun glistening, like diamonds, on the surface. Wiley and I sat at the overlook picnic table with the puppies lying on the dock, all basking in the glorious sunlight, soaking the warmth in after weeks of cold. It was just what the doctor ordered!
On the hike back, there were several people gathered around a small waterway in the campground. They were looking at a gator sunning itself on the far bank. I got a little to bold for Wiley’s liking and went to the closer bank’s water’s edge to snap a picture. Wiley asked, that I please not get “gatored” and get away from there, so I obliged, but only after I got my shot. Yea gator!
