Since Mom is still fighting her bronchitis we decided to take it easier on her. That doesn't mean we were willing to give up our family hiking time, though. We decided to go to one of our favorite local places which is the Riverfront Trail in downtown Peoria. It's a beautiful place for walking, although it's a pretty quiet place right now. When the snow melts and things start blooming, I imagine it will be much busier.
During our walk, we spotted a lot more wildlife than we've seen in a long time. The ducks and Canadian geese have returned and there was a beaver in the river working on his lodge. We saw a robin, too, but Mom wasn't quick enough to catch his picture. The beaver was a lot more cooperative.
