We had a few showers this morning  but Tashi and I, upon my request, went for a walk at the Parkville Nature Sanctuary. It was a good thing that the trails at the sanctuary were covered with mulch and gravel so there was not a lot of mud to worry about while trekking. I love… Continue reading Relax. Trek.
