Well, I was game this morning, lol!

The creek was still running, the weekend crowds were gone, and it hadn’t hit 105 heat index yet, lol!

Plus I had my trusty many years old, neck-worn Humane Society t-shirt on, plus my brand new waterproof hiking sandals received just the day before!

Sheila stayed back, we’d done a together hike with the crowds Sunday. Her post & pics on FB are here ♥️

Six weeks ago today I posted the two pics below.

Quite a different scene from that in the above video after intermittent rains this past week, or the 2nd of today’s videos end of my post 😊

This second video below, I happened to catch a tiny glimpse of my new waterproof hiking sandals! They enabled me to tip toe into ankle deep water and onto rocks to get these newer water filled shots.

If I’d thought of it before I left to go back home I’d have tried to catch some shots or video of me walking out on the rocks – definitely will try for that next time 😊

You might notice I had socks on with my water/hiking sandals, that’s cause I wasn’t used to them & was worried they’d rub my foot raw in a spot or two. Didn’t happen with the socks, but may have to wear the socks one or two more times before I’m comfortable trying walking with them w/out them, lol!

The sandals btw (via Amazon) surprised me how well they gripped the rocks under the flowing water – am “very” pleased how they held and helped me walk and jump rock to rock from the shore – and back! 🙏

When I can get a nicer video of using these (see tweet below) I’ll do a post on them!

Also, I’ve begun to catch up on my chores & hope to resume my Volleyball gift writing series this week, esp now that I might be putting the whole Volleyball series in the Old Bakery for when it opens later this month or early next!

The last writing I posted was Volleyball Digger, way back in early May.

Maybe, if I can continue to catch up chores, I can make & upload Volleyball Kill next!

Wish me luck! And grab as much of that good will in the air as you can! Goodwill, like nature, is there for all of us! ♥️

Thanks so much everyone! 💕

  1. It’s so awesome that you have that beautiful creek so close to home! I would be there everyday! Yes, good water shoes are important for that kind of treking, be careful, that water can be stronger than it looks! 😉

    • I couldn’t believe how easily, how quickly, and how powerfully the flow and pull of the water is! It is wonderful to have so close by, Tiffany ♥️ I’m being told the creek’ll be dry later in the summer til next spring, so gotta enjoy this phase of it now ☺️
