I first sat at a picnic table to eat my lunch, then sketched the view looking down the lake.
After writing for a while, I wandered a bit more, until I found myself enveloped in the fragrance of sun-warmed pines on a dry hillside-- the perfect place to sit and sketch.
Finally, rested and refreshed in body and soul, I made my way slowly around the lake until I met up with Jonathan. We then explored, as we compared notes about our day. I'm looking forward to going back very soon.
