Back in October of last year, I posted about walking along the Farmington River with the stunningly patient and mighty fine SML. It was a gorgeous fall day and then winter came. And stayed. And stayed. Like a clueless and unwelcome guest, oblivious to overstaying its welcome, winter stayed. Vicious Mother Nature! Well, it appears that she finally got the hint and that unwelcome guest has hit the road and has made way for Spring.

With her long-awaited arrival, once again, the stunningly patient and mighty fine SML and I hit the road on a long walk. We did a 5.5 mile loop through our little town and along the river and it was fantastic. A nearly perfect day. Here are a couple of shots from our walk:

It was so nice to enjoy the sunshine, the breeze, and most importantly, some good time together. The Boy is in Albany at a Church youth conference and so it wasn't like we had to be anywhere. This allowed us time to walk, talk, and to enjoy being together. It was, in a word, sweet. I am go glad that after nearly twenty-five years together, we have opportunities like this to be together and that we enjoy those moments. I am blessed. Richly blessed.

So go walking with your best friend. It's a good thing.
