Worth a Glance: "A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson

I just finished Bill Bryson’s “A Walk in the Woods.” I’m sure many of you have read it or heard of it. It is an account of Mr. Bryson’s time spent hiking the Appalachian Trail. It is an easy and funny read. Most importantly, he takes the reader along with him. By the end of the book, I felt I was right there, feeling the same bitter sweet thoughts that the satisfyingly difficult journey was over.

I also was reminded of the simple truth that time spent in the outdoors brings appreciation for the outdoors.

If you are looking for a good book this summer or would like to learn a little more about the Appalachian Trail and haven’t read Bryson’s book, I highly recommend you do. You won’t be sorry.

South Florida Vacation: day second to last

Today was a total beach day. Probably too much sun. Even shirts and repeated sunscreen applications didn’t seem to stave off the slight burn I’ve got. We head home tomorrow night. I had thought about trying to get out in the early AM to cast at some peacock bass, but I think I’m going to give the fly rod the day off instead and just relax. I’m hoping to get a bit of reading done as well.

“A walk in the woods” by Bill Bryson is the book if choice right now.

Enjoy the photos! Jonny Cash was staring at me from above the urinal at the awesome restaurant, the Yardbird, so, yes, that photo was taken when you think it was taken….
