Round the Bend


 
 To climb the hill is hard indeed

 but at the top, your soul is freed

 
 to sail beyond your wildest dream

 or coast into a tranquil scene.

  
 The pace, of course, is up to you.

Go BIG, or just enjoy the view.

But either way, each journey's end

 is always waiting 'round the bend

 and better savored with a friend.

 =)

As you can see, my grandson and his buddy are into longboarding these days.
Don't they pursue their new hobby in beautiful surroundings?

Thanks to my talented daughter-in-law for the photos.

They appear to good at lonboarding - the term is new to me. And I'm sure it is enjoyed more with a friend than alone. :)

I tried skateboarding once. I nearly killed myself. Ditto dirt bike riding, at which my brother declared me a complete menace. Unless I'm in a swimming pool or car, my feet need to be on the ground, not wheels!

Hi Sue! Visiting through the Alphabet link list - nice to meet you and view these lovely photos - I regularly visit your Mum's blog! She and Dick are such lovely people.

Darlene said...

Kudos to Heather. She is quite the pro. Honestly, between your poem and her pictures, you have woven a beautiful message.

Dixie Mom said...

Lucky boys! What a pretty place. And longboarding uphill is hard! That was really fun.

Pondside said...

Wow, not every young long boarder has a grandma who can but words to the action quite like you do!

I was going to say, that's a long skateboard! Didn't know it was called longboarding. Neat! Good thing they have helmets! {:-D

yaya said...

Is longboarding a new version of skateboarding? Looks like fun and your poem is perfect with the pics. And yes, that is a lovely area where they live!

Jen said...

My son is asking every day for a long board. His birthday is coming. I guess Ill be taking those photos soon too.

Wonderful action shots of handsome dudes ~ looks like Fall there ~ ^_^

Sue said...

Yep, longboarding is a throwback to surfing with a longboard. It's getting really popular in California, and from what Brian says, I guess it's getting a lot of play elsewhere, too.
