Bill & Lois Outdoors

Bill & Lois shared a contagious enthusiasm for the outdoors. Regular hikes around the property acted as a form of exercise and quality time together. Several friends, family, and neighbors note that when Bill wasn’t traveling, Bill and Lois walked, hand in hand around the property every evening.

Long walks around the property acted as a treatment for Bill’s ongoing bouts of depression.

“On days when he could scarcely get out of bed, he would force himself to walk, taking deep breaths, putting one foot in front of the other, breathing and walking.”  –Nell Wing, Grateful to Have Been There
