I was in Orange Park, Florida over the weekend to celebrate the life of a beloved uncle who passed away last week. He was my late mother's younger brother and such a happy man that he would have loved the party my aunt threw for him on Friday night. The service was on Saturday morning, but since I walk on Saturday mornings with my friends, I tried to rally sister and cousin for an early walk with me. They could not be persuaded. So I asked the hotel desk if there was a path along the St. Johns River and there was! Off I went.
Three Little Birds, after the Bob Marley song, because serendipitously, it came on my iPod at that very moment. And I sang a little of it out loud, since no one was stirring. Click on the red link there to hear it if you don't know it. "Don't worry about a thing, 'cause every little thing's gonna be alright."
"Hula Hustle 5K", which explains why some runners were wearing grass skirts and leis. :) Click to enlarge.
A cheerful sheriff's deputy, who was directing runner traffic, directed me back to the hotel. And everyone was sorry they didn't go with me, after they heard about the view. :) I loved it and was just as happy to be alone.
