I returned today to my weekly habit of taking a walk at the Caratunk Audubon Refuge, my most beloved woods. It had been a few months since I was last there because the mosquitoes and ticks had been reigning supreme. Fortunately, their heyday seems to have passed and I had a lovely walk on a glorious day.
The highlight today was spending time at the stream, continuing to contemplate the "narrow bridge."
I first crossed the stream on a narrow bridge.
I made my way around to another crossing, and I realized that the stream was low enough that I could cross by stepping stone instead of bridge. It was great fun to find each step, never quite knowing if the stone would wiggle or not, and to take my time as I went, pausing often to appreciate the reflection in the water.
