Three Days of Enchantment

Three Days of Enchantment.

It takes three days to reach the coast, but what great days they are, a happy, jolly crowd tramping along in God's good sunshine—sometimes through groves of lovely beech trees by the side of a river, scarce able to hear our own footsteps, so soft the carpet of fallen leaves on which we walk—sometimes scaling a rocky mountain pass, higher and higher until we reach the top of the world, it seems, so splendid is the panorama spread before us. And then again sometimes just sitting idly in a little boat which takes us across a lake, so still, so beautiful, and reflecting the colour, and even the tiniest detail of all its flanking charm so perfectly that we feel content indeed, and at peace with the universe.
