Yes, Michael is a non-smoker! Well, he made it for 13 days, smoked 3 cigarettes one afternoon, and now he's on Day Six again..... sigh. But one thing that's really nice about the whole ordeal is that we are WALKING ... not every day, but probably every other day. Today the sun was out, and it was perfect for a walk!

One of the apple trees on our property ... sans leaves:
Here's an even older apple tree we saw on a vacant lot along the way...
And an old-growth cedar...
Other sights... not much commentary needed!
We've had a LOT of rain for the past few days, so we passed several seasonal streams that were all in 'full force...' as if it was spring!
And this last one, which made me think of a Thomas Kincade painting!
At one point, we were on a path into a this little cove, and an elderly fellow and his dog went by us ... we chatted for a few minutes and he mentioned that he was going for a 'dip.' I thought he was joking.

This is Harry (and his dog):
And this is Harry after he stripped down to the buff and dove in:
It's November 23rd, even if this is the Gulf Islands. Can you believe it?? This guy is nuts. And in better shape than I'll ever be! I think I'll stick to walking, though. :)
