Lindsay and Pampa Find an Adventure

Lindsay found her buddy lying in the trail.

My good buddy Lindsay McKinnon and and I celebrated September today by hiking the Hollins Trail (from Hollins to Carvins Cove near Roanoke, over the Tinker Mountain hump) and they putting our kayaks in the water and paddling into a stiff wind.

It was exhilarating and fun with one of my favorite people, as well as bats, birds, a turtle, Mr. Smiley and various other creatures. A glorious day ’twas.

Masked pals.
Lindsay found Mr. Smiley in a tree.
That’s Lindsay in the background admiring this beauty of a sailboat.
