Into the woods we go, for a picnic. And by woods I mean the fabricated jungle called Usuma Dam.
We were invited by a friend and her husband (Sabeeha & Muhammad),
such amazing couple. All her family went and we tagged along. She also invited our other friend, Asmee and her husband, Sadiq.
For the picnic, I made a huge casserole dish of pasta salad and a giant bowl of brownies. (The brownies finished within the first hour of the picnic).
Usuma Dam is such a beautiful place. It had the water which had live fish in it, a scenery of greens and mountains, and a bunch of tunnels and fascinating stuff. We had the picnic in the open (though we had to sweep off some dirt to find a place for carpets).
The potluck experience really opened our minds to different kinds of delicacies and the hiking strengthened our bonds as couples. We took a bunch of nice photos and every picture has a story behind it that we will forever cherish.
We talked, ate and hiked. It was an experience for a lifetime. Would we go back? Of course, maybe in March or December. Who knows?
