There was a hummingbird making a life at the top of the power line. And there were other birds trying to sit near his home. He was obviously irritated. Get off my lawn!
A couple taking a stroll with their two standard poodles came over to chat. Of course we bonded - I am a big poodle fan.
I thought about the thousands of people who climbed the same steps before me over the last 5 to 6 hundred years.
