The Evening Walk

April 13th, 2013

Mr Chiots and I have always enjoyed taking evening walks. We’ve always enjoyed it, we loved walking the streets of the various cities, towns, and neighborhoods we’ve lived in. Here in Maine, we’ve been hiking the different trails on our property.

Typically we leave about an hour before dusk and try to make it back before dark. The other night it was pretty dark when we were on our way back, we had lingered watching the sunset over the wetlands.  On our way back, you could only really see Lucy when she was standing on the snow.  We always have flashlights just in case we end up staying out too long.

There’s something so relaxing about walking at this time of night, it’s certainly a great way to leave work behind and relax before bed!

What’s your favorite activity for relaxing in the evening (other than gardening of course)?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
