I have not posted for almost two months, because I took a trip to California, to enjoy my grandson and soak up some of that good sunshine. One of those days, we went for a walk to his local park, where we enjoyed swinging on the swings together for about half an hour in the pleasant sunshine. I was reminded of a poem, my mother used to recite to us children while we swung on our homemade swing made by my father.
How do you like to go up in a swing ,
Up in the sky so blue?
Oh, I do think it, the pleasantest thing,
ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all over the country side!
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown,
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down.
Poem by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Have you been on a swing lately? Good exercising, but start out slowly!
The Golden State!
California Coast and golden California poppies!
San Francisco still one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
Beautiful Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada!
Bay Bridge to SFO, Fruit trees blooming and the Pacific Ocean!
