Willband Creek is located halfway between Mission and Abbotsford, B.C. It is home to many varieties of birds and also possesses a couple of loops around the park for people to walk along. And some lessons to be learned as well, so I found out!
It was one of those nice dry days, albiet after a few days of rain, and Hubby and I went to visit and go for a walk. He took the short loop.
I took the long loop path around the Sanctuary which was fine, lots of beatiful scenery, nice day, with a few people enjoying their walk as well.
No wind, so easy to get some awesome reflections on the water.
So far all is well!
I had just about finished the long loop and could see the parking lot within eye shot, when I came to a part of the path that was not dry. In fact it was a long section of thick wet mud. Lots of mud. And water, in fact it was a bit flooded. Now I could of gone around, back the way I came and had a doubly long walk. After all, it was a nice day. But I could see the goal line aka: the parking lot.
And its really not me to just walk away from a little obstacle like a bunch of mud. (Sorry I did not take a photo of the mud for you!) So I braved it. I walked on. Rather I squelched my way through, and at one point up to my ankle in that said mud. Would of sucked my shoe off if my shoelaces weren't tied as tight as they were. I made it through, upright on my feet but muddy for the effort.
There wasn't any Giant Leap I could of taken that would of got me through that mud unscathed. I should of gone back the way I came. Sometimes you have to backtrack to get back on track. I missed my Giant Leap and saw it in hindsight. But I lived to tell you about it!!!
