The Marsh Store is on the edge of a small conservation area on the Sydenham River. In the 1960s a dam was built to create a large pond. By the pond is a picnic area. On Thursday Nellie wanted to go over to the soccer fields with her ball so I followed. While she played, I sat on the swings and learned swings make you breathe the way they teach you to breathe during yoga and meditation. So if you can't take time for yoga classes, sit on a swing and practise the relaxing breathing techniques.
Yesterday Nellie and I walked down Marsh Lane to the trail. It used to go right through to Quaker Lane.
|The trail to the left. Parking to the right.|
This tree by the trail has fallen. The variety of browns and beiges inspire colour combinations. A little snow adds a spot of colour.
On the way home back up to the store. I always wonder how many generations have enjoyed this view. To Nellie and I, it means we are almost home after an inspiring and reviving walk.
