A Small Treasure
July 28th, 2018
On most of our adventures I have no idea where we're going or where we are at any given moment, which honestly is quite lovely. It takes the stress off of looking for the right road to turn on, or trying to remember the roads so we can backtrack and get home! It also gives me the chance to just soak in the sights with no distractions, of course this wouldn't be possible without Poke at the wheel!
On such days, you expect to see the usual sights like hay bales, pastures with cows, horses or goats, don't forget the deer, snakes or other wild animals, lots of homes of all varieties, trees and hopefully beautiful blue skies! Which is one of the reasons why we love what we do. The further you get into the ride the more you can let go of the load you're carrying for that day and the sharper your vision becomes to the little things, the simple things. On this particular day as we were riding down Dupree Hollow in Limestone County I yelled "Look at that!", which could mean anything from "look how beautiful" to "watch out". We had come up on this beautiful little waterfall in the trees alongside the road. In this case, Poke knows to stop and out of the Jeep I jump onto the road taking pictures. We could have been on this road before, I honestly don't remember. But I wonder how many times people pass this little hidden waterfall and never see it. But that's one thing we're learning from our adventures, small treasures are sometimes in plain sight, it's just a matter of slowing down and looking around.
