Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Robert Frost

    I know the feeling, Cherie, as I am sure you do. I am forever following one footpath and be itching to diverge off another

    Love this poem, an excellent reminder read, just before we take a Memorial Day hike, and especially after I just witnessed a bunch of people headed to the pool, wearing American flag beach cover-ups.

    Sigh, yes – methinks I’ll go the lesser travelled road, this holiday, and go for the road not taken, on a hike instead of the pool party :)

    By coincidence, I had prepared a Robert Frost poem to post today, “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” btw way. Oooh, synchronicity? lol

    I added a link to my post to here, hope you don’t mind?

    Love you …

      I dislike places that are crowded in that way. We had similar crowded areas in the place we visited today, but we found solitude in the gardens and woodlands. I even found the perfect quiet place for lunch, tucked away from the crowds. We shared the space with outhers who appreciated a quieter lunching experience.

      I love synchronicity :-)

      I will check out your post later :-)

      Love & Hugs xx
