Ever have a day that starts out great only to have it be ruined by one little seemingly insignificant thing? Yeah, me too. In fact, that’s happened to me more often than I’d like to admit lately.
Most recently, I was taking a nice hike along the Bold Coast trails in Cutler, Maine (if you ever have the chance to go there, I would recommend it). The weather was great, I got some decent photographs, and I even found two geocaches along my route (those of you who don’t know what geocaching is, look it up, it’s awesome). I decided to stop for lunch on a rock ledge above the ocean. Sun, surf, and a nice lunch. Perfect afternoon, right? Right. Well, that is, until I sat down and heard (and felt) a “pop/crunch”. It was in that moment that I remembered…..
….My sunglasses were in my back pocket.
Farewell perfect day. It was nice while it lasted.
I was annoyed, frustrated, and half blinded by the bright sun at the loss of my sunglasses. But, on the upside, at least they weren’t an expensive pair. Thank you dollar store!
That’ll teach me to store my sunglasses in a place where they could be destroyed. On my face is probably a better place to have them.
And on a final note for this week‘s post, my thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out to all the victims, victim’s families, survivors, and everyone affected by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon. And a big thank you to the first responders and everyone who helped during the aftermath. Stay strong, Boston!
Until next time…
