A friend called and invited me to the first picnic of the season. It was supposed to be a warm day for us and his family had decided to celebrate a birthday with a picnic, –and I was invited. We knew it would be cooler at the rocks, and it would get even cooler as dusk settled in, but we wore warm clothing and went for it any way.
I’ve been to the rocks with them several times in the last 8 years. I haven’t been there for a couple of years, though, and it was interesting to me to see the small changes that nature has made. There are a lot more fallen branches and dead stuff under foot, and the rocks are much more moss covered, but the rocks are as solid as ever.
It was colder that we expected it to be but we enjoyed the picnic fare and birthday cake at the end of the celebration. We didn’t have ice cream. It was too cold there to have ice cream!
It was a very nice surprise for me to have my day interrupted by this picnic at the rocks!
