Not a place I like to visit often when the bugs are biting, this shaded looped pond near our house is a great place for a slow meander and explore. There’s a creek to peek into, hills to run up, rocky crags paralleling the dirt pathway to bushwhack through, beavers to look for, mushrooms galore, a fish ladder to watch when fish are spawning…
It’s easy to lose track of time at this pond. I don’t even mind when I do.
I like how losing track of time can lead us to just be present in the moment.
Loving this living.
