the summer sun’s calling my name – I hear it now. I just can’t stay inside all day. Gotta get out, get me some of those raaaaays.” ~The Brady Bunch
It was a nice day today, and the husband wanted to go for a hike. I have to say, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and did NOT feel like hiking, but we all went out and ended up having a great time.
We drove for about 10 minutes, and just outside JPL, we found a little trail. It was easy to forget we were near a city – so close to civilization.
The body of water was pretty big, actually. Wayne started joking around about “the boy who lives in the water.” And then we saw him.
I felt like we’d come across a real live Huck Finn. He was telling us all about the lizards, gophers, and snakes he brings home. He makes traps and catches them, much to his mother’s dismay. He was enjoying the heck out of his Sunday for sure.
We forewent a dip in the pond, but saw some remote control airplanes, frisbee golfers, and even this guy.
