Monday 08/17/20 Sue had cataract surgery early that morning, and just wanted to come home and chill out, though on the way home she was reading signs 200 feet ahead that on the way down couldn't even tell it was a sign....
By Tuesday morning, however, she wanted to get outside for a short walk part way up Pine Mountain. So, we loaded Beau into the car and headed off.
And by Wednesday, she was all fired up, and wanted to go back to Pine Mountain, and hike up to the top. We took it slow, as any operation or surgical procedure takes the energy out of you as the body heals and adjusts. But that was fine as it gave us time to just enjoy the way up as much as just getting to the top.
It turned out to be a beautiful day with wonderful views of the lake.
