My Happy Place!


Do you have a happy place? On days like today, having a place to go that centers you, is the only way to cope with this crazy world we live in. This is one of my happy places, Stepping Stone Falls. It is a place that brings memories of my sisters and brothers, of picnics and hikes along the paths.

I am not in great shape and hasn't been my best week, so I found a new parking spot that is closer to the falls so it was about a 2 mile hike.

We had a good rain storm that bought a lot of rain in a short amount of time, so I knew it was a good time to see the falls.


Even Bill relaxes when we go here. It is something that we enjoy together and energizes us for the week.


And, at home I do my part to help where I can. This poor old guy likes my porch, it is quiet and there aren't a bunch of dogs trying to bite his ears, so he spends most of his time here. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he gets cans of food every day;)

Very pretty scene with the little waterfall. I like to sit and watch running water like this. Very soothing.

So glad you have a happy place to go to when your not feeling the best. So sorry for those in Boston. Just a crazy world. No wonder the cat comes, with food and a bed like that on offer he's found his happy place.

Your falls are gorgeous! Your feline friend is adorable & what a kind heart you have to give him/her a safe/soft place to rest & even get a meal :)
Hope you feel better with each passing hour.
