Today was a good day. I have felt amazingly good since I did the fifth step. It makes me feel that I have truly made progress.
I met up with some friends from out of town and did something that I have never done in this town before. I went for a carriage ride. It was a good time and an opportunity to hear some new facets about this historic town that I live near. My friends enjoyed the boat also and after they left I left the marina and anchored near the bird rookery again.
A weak cold front had come through and the temperatures were about 10 degrees cooler than they have been all week. There was a stiff breeze and it was a fantastic night on the boat.
I'm finding that I really look forward to my time on the boat. It's a time to reflect, meditate, and appreciate the beauty that surrounds me.
