As I had mentioned, my husband had made it possible for me to escape my children for several hours. So my brother, his fiance and I took a hike. Instead of kicking back with a good book and a glass of wine, I apparently put on some ill-fitting shoes and trekked through some mud, sloshed through some rivers and got pelted with rain. And I loved every minute. It was about 6 miles, round trip and I have the blisters to prove it. Ill-prepared as always, I forgot bandaids. I did, however, have the ziploc bag that my peanut butter sandwich was in. Folded up, it fit nicely in my shoe. The peanut butter left in the bag offered some extra cushion. I felt a bit like MacGyver. Just think what I could have done with a stick of gum!
And because a picture tells a thousand words, here are some of the highlights.

See the water falling from the sky???
Notice the missing sunglasses? Pity. I really liked them.
