The Wiley

This evening was basically a repeat of yesterday evening, i.e. Ah ... Daylight Saving Time. Except tonight Bill and I met at our old running spot, affectionately known as The Wiley. This is the greenway which runs along the Roanoke River and passes through both Smith and Wasena Parks.

This picturesque setting is a favorite place for Bill and I but as evidenced by the number of people present, we are not alone.

Male and female, old and young, fast and slow catagorized the huge ensemble of runners, walkers, skaters, bikers and variety of canine critters who took advantage of the beautiful evening to gather at and traverse the greenway.
As we ran along it was obvious that the variety of now forming buds will soon fill the trees with foilage as Spring once again usurps Winter's harsh reign, thereby signifying life's continued rebirth.

It's a great time to be living in the Blue Ridge.

And as this transition takes place, Bill and I will be spending many miles together at The Wiley as we prepare for the runs which lie ahead.

See you out there.

Thanks for pix - I could almost hear the sound of running water-something that I have to go up in the mountains for here...pretty!
