52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 52

We took a trip to The Windmill Plantation
 in South Georgia last weekend.

We were so happy to see that the 70 acre pond was full.
Over the years the pond had dried up due to the drought
but thanks to a few weeks of rain, the water was replenished.

I managed to escape from the cabin 
for a bit to go on a walk alone.
I wandered over to the pond as the sun was setting.

I love the way that the Cypress knees 
look like spirits rising out of the water.

I came upon an old bridge that led to an island on the pond. 

It was rickety and creaked as I took each step forward.
I was a little nervous that the boards 
might break and send me tumbling into the water.

I mustered up my courage
and made it all the way across.

It was worth the journey just
to watch the wind blow
zig zag reflections of the trees on the water.

I sat alone
and watched the sun set over
the serene water.

It was such a lovely evening.

Wait a minute!
Be sure to enter my Firmoo givaway
for a chance to win free glasses!

Oh...one more thing,
tune in tomorrow to see the new button
for the next Happiness Project!
That's right!
Let's keep going!
