Yesterday The Man and I went for a nice 11 mile walk to the Gibraltar Mercury Mine. The mine is fenced off now, but it is still interesting to look at. The hike is pretty easy because it's all along a dirt road. The mud on the road was sticky and gave us Frankenstein shoes.
We actually stayed up late for New Year's Eve. We had a party invitation. It was a fun party. People brought musical instruments and we all played Irish music together all night long. The funniest part of the evening was when they turned the Dreidel song into a jig with the Mexican Hat Dance as the B part.
We toasted the New Year with a little bit of champagne. Then went home and went to bed.
Now it is a new year. My big hike was last year. I have no big hikes planned. It is difficult to find purpose and something to look forward to without a big adventure planned.
