Date night with nature….

last Friday hubby and I did a picnic at Gambrills State Park in Frederick, Maryland.  It was soo nice and pleasant.  No one around where we were.  It was peaceful and beautiful.  We go in a little fishing…..and I mean a LITTLE FISHing 🙂

That is MY hand…I have small hands…small fish!  It was fun though, we got a lot of little bluegills and sunfish.  The pond was beautiful and the reflection in the late afternoon sun was awsome:

The park has 3 overlooks into the valley below and we sat and watch a very strong nasty thunderstorm come across….of course then we made a beeline home to avoid the storm on the highway:

I’m remember why I enjoy being out in nature so much (though I detest the bugs immensely), it’s so peaceful.

Then we hit a few little white balls on Sunday evening at our local golf course, The Links at Challedon.

Not a flattening picture of me, but that is me swinging a club!

Hubby looks much better at it than I do:

Their tee boxes had beautiful landscape around them:
