Changing Scenery

After the disastrous beginning to my Saturday, Chris suggested that a change of scenery would help to break the negative start to my day. I wrote about the beginning of my day in my blog, Saturday Dawns--Needs to get Better

I am happy to report that the day did, in fact, improve. We drove to Columbia, MD, to walk around Lake Kittamaqundi and enjoy a true change of scenery from or usual stroll through our local neighborhood. It was refreshing change and, despite being in the heart of Columbia, the walk was full of enjoyable sights.

I had forgotten how peaceful the walk around the lake could be. Despite being in located the heart of Columbia near the biggest buildings and busiest highways, the lake was a peaceful place to enjoy nature and some scenery different from our usual areas. Perhaps it was because we are only just beginning to venture out after the coronavirus lockdowns, but the walk around the lake was a much needed diversion from the usual and changed the course of Saturday from disaster into an enjoyable day which ended around the pool. 

We were joined on our walk by many others who were similarly out to enjoy the day. But it was more than just a leisurely stroll around the lake. We stopped to watch ducks play in a stream and later walked past a gaggle of geese cooling themselves in the shade of trees. It was part of the complete experience.

A change of scenery, sometimes that is all it takes to turn a day around.
