This week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge is Narrow. Being somewhat claustrophobic, I generally like wide open spaces. However, in those wide open spaces there is also many narrow things.
A narrow stone stairway in the beautiful Letchworth State Park in New York.
New, narrow cabinet handles we added during our weekend kitchen makeover.
A narrow, natural water slide in Ohiopyle State Park in Pennsylvania.
The tall, narrow trees behind my son in the Allegheny National Forest in New York.
The long narrow bridge to the outlook at Cooper’s Rock State Park in West Virginia.
So, don’t let claustrophobia keep you from enjoying the narrow things in life 🙂
This week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge is what makes your “cherry on top.” Taking something good and making it that much better with a cherry on top.
My family LOVES to go camping and a big part of camping is hiking. There’s nothing better than hiking in the woods, which can be up to 10 degrees cooler with the sun just filtering through the tall, stately trees. I love seeing the birds, squirrels, lizards and sometimes even a snake. (And in case you think I’m brave – I’m not! These are little garter snakes)
And what makes a good hike through the woods even better? Coming across a creek with a waterfall!
Especially a waterfall you can climb behind (Ohiopyle State Park in Pennsylvania). The mist from the water makes everything around it feel so cool, a welcome experience after hiking.
So that’s my “cherry on top” – a waterfall at the end of a hike in the woods.
This week’s Daily Post photo challenge deals with opposites. The most opposite things I know of, would have to be my husband and me. Even though we are like night and day we’ve been together over 30 years 🙂
My husband, Jim
- likes to stay up late and sleep in
- likes AC/DC, Metallica & country music
- likes to drink beer
- is a carnivore
- likes movies over books
- fall asleep before 11 and get up by 7
- like Duran Duran, Rolling Stones and classical music
- can’t drink more than a 1/2 a glass of wine
- am a vegetarian
- like books over movies
Yet despite these differences (and more) we have survived some difficult years – together. Not only do opposites attract, they can also make a winning combination.
