Weekly Photo Challenge time! This week we were invited to share our interpretation of a “Treat”: “For many, candies aren’t a favorite indulgence. Maybe you’re a savory food lover, or you’ve gone on a beautiful vacation to treat yourself. Perhaps some quiet time alone with a beloved novel is your greatest pleasure. This week, share with us a photo of something that you consider a marvelous treat.”
Of course, I immediately thought of candy because tomorrow is Halloween. And I love candy. But, I wanted to go a different direction. So, I considered cake. I love cake. Particularly when it’s in the form of a cupcake. But, I have not cupcake pictures. Now that I think about it, I could have used this “assignment” as an excuse to stop at the local cupcake shop after work. Dang. Short-sighted on my part.
Actually, with a little more thought, I came up with pictures from a hike that we took earlier this year in the Mt. St. Helens area. How am I getting treat out of that? Allow me to explain: I live in the great state of Washington. We get a little bit of rain around here. Which means that, sometimes, it is an incredible treat to hit a hiking trail on a gorgeous day with views that go on for miles. Because on any given day you could hit rain, drizzle, mist, showers, sprinkles, a torrent, heavy dew…you get the idea. But on those days when the skies are clear and the mountains unfold before you….those days are a treat.
