Last week we were able to get away up north.
This was really huge for me... first time I've traveled in about a year.
It thrilled my soul to see new and unfamiliar things.
I needed a change from the norm.
We drove through San Francisco, even though it was out of the way.
We wanted the kids to be able to experience the Golden Gate Bridge...
it was worth it.
The city fascinates you, doesn't it, Patrick asked.
I guess it really does.
I love to marvel at the architecture.
To watch all the interesting people.
To feel the energy.
But it only lasts for a couple of hours... or a couple of days at the most.
Because I'm a country mouse at heart.
What truly captivates my attention for hours is God's simple, yet complex design...
|Trees along the Russian River valley.|
|Peaceful gliding along the river.|
|Parking the canoe and enjoying the beach with the fam.|
|The bridge that marked the 1/3 point. It was a 10 mile trip... about 5 hours with our stops.|
|We saw some spotted cows on the way back to the resort.|
|Patrick pulled over, because he knew I'd want photos.|
Look at her muddy little legs... just like socks.
Are you a city mouse or a country mouse?
