Papas World – Sheltering – warm days – seems normal!

We finally had some warm weather a couple days in a row!

Friday – Saturday and Sunday – low 70’s to low 80’s.

Beautiful skies – blue – white clouds and sunshine!

After Sunday supper – I sat down on the front porch and noticed

the clouds were coming in from the South West.

Going to storm I thought – but it was warm –

and I told Sherry if it does and the temps drop

we will have our first Spring Thunder and Lightening storm!

THE GRATEFUL DEAD
To all you deadheads out there!

We had watched our church service streamed live

enjoyed a great breakfast

and decided to walk to our town center 1 1/2 miles away.

So we could get in our three plus mile walk!

When we got over there after walking through the 15 acre park

we saw they had set up the Farmers Market –

with the whole width plus some – the street in between the booths

and each booth had yellow caution tape in front

so you could not get close.

You had to point and tell them what you wanted!

It was very well set up with a large table in the middle of the street

with hand sanitizer on it to disinfect your hands before and after

you made the purchase.

Since it was late and they were closing up –

I do not know if it was cash or credit card or both.

But – next week we are going as they had hanging baskets for $10.00

and Tomato plants for $2.50

( I always buy one to see if I can produce better than the Tower Garden)

I can’t!!!!!

The storm came in later at 10 PM. with lightening and Thunder

and a little bit of rain.

This morning it is warm 59 degrees.

Everything is lush – green and our roses are starting to bloom!

Papa’s World – Day #27 Sheltering in place.

Walking a nature trail
all by ourselves!

Yesterday – we dicided to ride our bikes and then walk

a new Nature trail we discovered the other day.

Trail marker

We had found this by accident – a tunnel had been installed

In the new over 55 community being built one half mile away!

We were riding our bikes on the paved path

and just happened to glance over the bank and saw the entrance!

Rocks placed on the trail to cross the wet waterway!

We followed the path and went trough the tunnel and found

THREE nature trails varying in length

three miles being the longest!

Trail markers with picture
representing which trail
you are walking!

So , we parked the bikes and locked them up

and started walking through marsh lands and forests and watershed.

The markers were well displayed

It was well done with gravel – small crushed pavement

and mowed so we did not get our feet wet.

Markers along the trail

It was quiet and NO ONE was to be seen!

Sherry by the small Broad run creek!

This is called the Broad run water shed and eventually

ends up in the Potomac River!

A beautiful sometimes open walk

We walked in the forest and in fields!

Broad run creek

Walking – we received alerts on our phones

a rain storm was approaching

and we were about 2/3 the way through!

Along the way!

In addition to the makers and historical facts on signs

These what I think are entrances to storm drains

and they were hand painted – very cool!

Another storm drain!

The walk was through forests and marsh lands that had many

planted trees that had been protected with plastic tubes.

Walking the trail

We saw many signs of animal prints and tracks

Deer – fox and maybe dogs I think!

The trees planted
and protected by plastic
tubes!

The marsh was impressive as I had no idea it was there!

At the beginning of the 3 mile walk.

Needless to say – just as we finished it started to sprinkle.

We still had to bike almost two miles

in the rain.

On the way back – we got soaked

and Sherry had a accident and hit a curb with her knee

when she went down.

It ended up very painful – but we iced it

and today she is moving well.

We were afraid she had maybe cracked the knee cap.

Social distancing
while riding our bikes

She has been on our supplement of Juice Plus for 14 years

and building her immune system with nutrients

from Fruits – Vegetables and Berries

directly into her blood stream

Providing the recovery of physical things such as

her running the 10 mile cherry blossom race.

Her recovery from something like this that is not a break

is exceptional and myself also.
