"Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty"  John Ruskin.  Our outings take place on weekend and weekdays, and any time that nature beckons, from early morning walks to moonlight hikes.  Our activities center around hiking, kayaking, biking, but included will be museums, galleries, music festivals and concerts, perhaps traveling our of state, who knows? Being retired offers so many possibilities.  We will be adventurous but aware of our surroundings and respectful of the environment.  Our urban and country explorations are preferably local and free or minimal cost. There are many bargains around and we try to take advantage of all the CSRA has to offer. The main idea is to get outside and make more human connections and perhaps lasting friendships.  This technology is wonderful for starting a conversation and making a plan, but if we don't get up and get outside and reach out, then it's no good.

"Keep not standing, fixed and rooted... briskly venture, briskly roam!" Goethe
