Hi all! Welcome to this week’s weekly smile :) Anyway, after that intro, I am going to be boring and repeat things I have said 1000 time before…
I spent the weekend on Cape Cod. I was able to get out on the kayak on Friday and Saturday, took a few long walks in the woods and a few on the beach, including going out to my favorite beach for walking, Chapin Beach, for one of the only times this year.
Kayaking on Friday was nice, but it was as rough as I’ve seen it in a while. I was pretty wet by the time I got back because of all of the water splashing over the kayak. I went a different way than usual, which was nice. I usually don’t go towards the ocean in the summer because of all of the boat traffic, but it is fine in the fall.
It was cooler on Saturday, but calmer. I did one of my normal paddles, stretching it out a bit. I saw some wildlife, which is always nice, but didn’t see any seals this week.
The return to Chapin Beach was nice. You can almost imagine you are the first person to ever walk that beach. There was nobody there and there are no houses or other buildings on it.
Most of the weekend was pretty close to what I usually do on Cape Cod, but that wet and wild paddle was different, as was getting out to Chapin.
That was my smile for the week, a nice weekend on Cape Cod doing some of the usual but in unusual ways.
What made you smile?
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). Note – I am no longer compiling the smiles into a weekly post as I used to – Sorry, I do not have time.
