I love spending time in the mountains. They are the bones of the earth. I always feel closer to creation when I’m in the mountains. Walking, driving, or floating, being in the mountains is exciting. I can always find a place to stop and get my feet (and a line) wet in a river or creek, wonder what bent the rock strata like that, or check out local stores or flea markets.
I prefer rivers to the “beach”. For me a good summer afternoon is floating down river in my kayak, (easy on the whitewater please) throw out a line, catch some Smallmouth or Blue gills, or just admire the scenery ( I have an extra kayak). Bonus points if I see an eagle or heron. I like being on or by the ocean sometimes I just can’t lay out on the beach and roast. I have to be doing something or find a beach where I can see more sand than blankets. One item on my bucket list is to go out on a Schooner for a day or two, three masts would be nice but two will do.
You might ask if I ever stay in town? I like to walk around in Richmond’s old neighborhoods, that history thing again. I have become interested in art recently, and find myself wandering around the VMFA. I am not trained in painting or sculpture, nor even very knowledgeable but I am picking up a little here and there. I like live Jazz, the beer at Capital Ale House, dinner all over town, or just sitting close and talking.
