This has been a pretty good week. I went down to Cape Cod this weekend, but what is new? I did some of the usual, like a super long walk on the sand-flats of Chapin beach, where I I enjoyed some of the sand patterns (see photo below) and a very long paddle on my kayak. But there was something that stood out against those smile worthy things.
So what was it?
Not some REM memory of Nightswimming, but out under a cool October sun in the cold Massachusetts water. lol, yes, on Friday I went down to West Dennis Beach, took a walk, watched people in the water (not many!), and ended the walk with a 15 minute swim. Close to the shore, wading up to my knees, the water was warm, but out far from shore, and above my head, it was cold.
I have been swimming on Cape Cod in October in the past, but only a couple of times. To me this was very cool (not temperature, though that too ;) ) and surpassed even the very long paddle and the patterns.
So that was my smile for the week, a very nice visit to Cape Cod including swimming in the ocean in October.
What made you smile?
(A reminder – There will not be a Smile Recap post next week).
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile. (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).
