Carrying my house like a turtle

july 2014 002

While on a long hike yesterday I realized that I really like carrying my house on my back. My daughter said I was like a snail or a turtle. I liked the idea of a turtle better than a snail and it sort of matches my slow hiking too. I really enjoyed my hike and traveled about six miles with twenty pounds in my pack. I stopped by the ocean and the breeze off the ocean was so cool I had to put a long sleeve shirt over my tee shirt. My ankle felt okay though I did ice it after I got home. I am happy to be back on the trail after hurting my ankle. I met a woman today from NY that moved to Maine and enjoys hiking. It was nice to chat with her for part of the walk. So preparation for the fall hike begins again! Happy Trails!
