A Little Slower

Not much enthusiasm for my walk today. I feel tired. The sky is overcast and it is chilly. I walked a little slower today, but walked for 50 minutes. Went to the Peace Gardens to see the flowers in bloom. It is lovely. As I crossed the river I saw an animal swimming in the water. It had a very long rat-like tail, which it used to propel itself along as it foraged for food. The river is running low, perhaps preparing for the summer run-off from the East mountains. As I re-crossed the river to return home I could smell honeysuckle blossoms - very fragrant.

  1. That little animal was probably a muskrat. How fun!
