I've been busy over the weekend rebuilding the trailer for the Heron. Much grinding, cutting and welding. Monday was a holiday so it was down tools and take Fly for decent walk. She's not very keen on crossing streams.
John Muir was born two doors along from where I live. His early childhood was spent playing around the coast where each morning I start my day by taking Fly for a walk. His love of wild places fortunately continued when his family emigrated to America.
He founded the Sierra Club and was leading in the creation of the Sequoia National Park and the Yosemite Valley. John Muir devoted most of his life to preserving the natural and spiritual qualities he found in wild places. He wrote that "as long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing." I'm kind of fond of waterfalls myself so I took a couple of hours to wander around Pease Dean to try and capture the start of the Autumn in my own mind.
Fly the pioneer seeking out the trail and checking I'm still with her!
A fine day off but back to the grind tomorrow.
