|The kids scarcely got out of the car and they were taking pictures.|
Christmas Day here is foggy and with all the fresh, white snow, low winds, and temperatures warm enough for almost any activity, I decided the family needed to do a walk around the lake out by the Green Belt.
It was a perfect time to do the walk, as the snow was on the branches, a slight fog in the air, and not many folks were stirring yet. Probably they were all busy opening gifts, or sleeping in. We had a modest Christmas. There were no gifts. Just time spent with each other, and on the walk, at least, no distractions from the outside world.
It wasn't a bike ride, or a fancy device, or a shiny gift wrapped with a bow, but it was a better Christmas morning than I have had in many a year. Not that doing traditional things is bad, but I feel like stripping things down to what really matters, at least once in a while, is a good thing to do.
I'll share a few images below......
