[Canaan Valley, WV]
I've been fortunate to spend the past week at the cabin. The first three days were overcast and even cool with a little rain here and there, but it was chilly enough in the evenings to require a fire in the fireplace. A real treat in August!
I came out because we had a long range planning committee meeting on Friday, which I always find interesting. Aside from the meeting, I did a lot of reading and relaxing inside those first few days, but Saturday the weather cleared and we had three straight days of sunny skies, low temperatures and low humidity - perfect for hiking. I had volunteered to make a map of our community's 12 or so miles of trails, so I got out my GPS unit and hiked three long trails, taking GPS readings, notes, and pictures along the way. Now I have to plot the points on a map - which will take time.
I'm returnung to Maryland this evening because I have to get blood drawn tomorrow for my physical Friday. Monday I plan to return to Canaan because I have a guy coming out next week to look at our chimney which needs repair.
