Three plus weeks into the New Year and my Kinda Sorta New Year’s Resolutions are well underway. I committed to visiting the local lake ten times. As of today I’ve gone three times. I’d rather go now before the nice-weather crowds descend in spring and early summer. I am really not a fan of combining crowds and nature. The mood is mellow now, the walkers and joggers fewer. I am glad I made a plan to do this. It really is peaceful and scenic.
