After a peaceful rest at Sarah Hann’s lovely abode, we found ourselves walking the dog and running through Six-Mile Creek. It was a great way to spend the 70 degree afternoon as we explored the first, second, and third dams. On our walk, we saw young college girls, Asian fisherman, and, of course, naked men. […]
