The prompt for this week’s Wicked Wednesday is “Memories.” I hadn’t planned what I was going to write, or if I was going to write anything at all that had to do with the prompt, as I have an actual writing-for-submission deadline looming. (I know, I know, don’t I always?) But I’ve really been trying to focus on it – for REALS! But then, as I was looking through my files (doing some clean-up and file maintenance, something I frequently do when I am procrastinating) I found the pictures I featured yesterday and others I will be posting all week. W always says that he doesn’t remember anything without pictures. I am not that bad, but boy, do photographs bring the memories alive!
This set is from last fall when we went on our Great Katy Trail Adventure. I intended to post the “half naked” ones soon after for Curvaceous Dee’s Scavenger Hunt, but I never got around to posting them for the Alphabet Challenge, and felt like they needed to be part of a whole package. Eventually I forgot that we had taken the Scavenger Hunt pics, but Marie’s “memories” prompt seems like the perfect time to post them.
What I loved about taking the pictures is that I had just been looking at the Scavenger Hunt Locations list before we set out on that day’s ride, and had giggled a bit at the descriptor for “Rocks.” It says, “Rocks (big ones).” No pebbles, please! ~grin~ And well, yes, if you check out Kazi’s, Dee’s and Molly’s rock pictures, those are some big rocks!
Imagine my delight when we came around a corner in the Lewis and Clark Trail, and saw the mother of all rocks right there in our path: Balanced Rock. I knew my next Scavenger Hunt was nigh.
And that little tiny hole at the bottom, that’s the one that I crawled into so Ad and W could hog tie me around it, for the Letter U in the Alphabet Challenge: Under Rock.
Thanks for the prompt, Marie! Stumbling across this photo let me travel down Memory Lane a bit, and remember what a great trip we had. I hope we have more bicycle adventures in our future.
Meanwhile, check back tomorrow for another turn on Memory Lane. :-)
