Do Nothing Day

Woke up this morning thinking I’d do a bit a grocery shopping then just stick around the house. That just didn’t happen. I headed out to do the shopping, but the weather was so nice I thought I’d take a “quick” trip down to the Palmer Hay Flats. Well after walking a path along Cottonwood Creek, I’ve never walked this trail before, for about an hour I realized I needed to head back and get the shopping done. So much for doing nothing, a 2 hour walk along a creek of nothing. I’ll be back to walk this further another time with the dogs.

After shopping I cleaned out the Jeep a bit, mostly just trash that needed to be tossed. I also sized up a mounting place on the roof for my Gerrycan, found a perfect tight spot next to the spare tire. I wanted to see if the Gerrycan could be mounted on the roof for my up coming trip of 5 days down to the Kenai Peninsula. I headed down there for a bit of a get-away July 28 – August 1. Really looking forward to this, I just hope I’ll have enough money, if not, I’ll have to cut it short by a couple days.

Some photos from the Hay Flats today.
