Just for the Day
We drove up to Hasty Brook on Saturday to spend the day. You can barely make out the camper to the left of the truck at the end of the driveway. We had some work to do, cleaning the camper, stocking with supplies and stacking fire wood.
Art, my husband and best friend in the world, brought lumber up to finish the steps he and his brother built. The steps run from our campsite down the hill to the trails that lead to the creek.
I found two clumps of these yellow tipped ferns. I don't know if it's an indicator of fall coming or if they grow naturally this way. There are just so many shades and textures of green in the woods. It hums with life and there is a peace I find there that I don't find anywhere else.
Friday we're back up to Hasty for the weekend. We're having lots of company. There will be two campers and a tent for all of the kids. The weather forecast looks good (no more 100 degree days!).
