A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Rock Candy

An ambitious four hour hike in the Golden Gates Highland National Park near Clarens, South Africa was the flavor of the day today. Mild temps and sunny skies made the trek of 9,000 ft. bearable! Fantastic scenery in every direction, especially while viewing  some zebras and wildebeests in the distance. (No baboons this hike). Helen said "it takes work to reach the top!" And by golly she was right! We are both so thankful this part of the trip went so well (this hike could be weather dependent), and the drive back into crazy busy Johannesburg went without incident as well!
