Detours and the Road Less Travelled

This past weekend a friend and I took a chance and headed off down an unknown road in search of a lake for the dogs to swim. We found the lake, and although it was over an hour longer to get home it was a great day. The unknown road made us a little nervous- I'd never driven somewhere and not known where we were going to end up. It turns out that my friend isn't a great navigator- but that's okay. We saw parts of our little piece of the world that we've never seen before! Who knew that Alberta had rolling hills, and a lake that took a half an hour of driving to pass!

Although I was pretty sick and tired of driving by the end of the day- it was a pretty great experience. One that quite literally mimics my life right now. A road I've never been on before. Not quite sure really what will happen, or how things will work out. Interesting, New and kind of scary all at once.

The only thing you can do on an unknown road is keep driving forward- you're bound to end up somewhere! There comes a point when turning back isn't an option anymore.

A real life lesson. In more ways than one.

Adventures can be lots of fun...you never know what will turn up!

I tend to get nervous when I do not know where I am. But I am also learning to appreciate discovering new places, by allowing myself to become lost for a little while...
