Remember the old tale about the nail? But for a nail . . . and the battle was lost? This time it was a boot lace. But for a lace, I would have worn a hiking boot to McCauley-Bastian Preserve. Then even if I did step wrong, I wouldn't still be hobbling around in sprain pain. Other members of the family have also made that point, or made remarks about age. Could have avoided that too! I did see some of this bayberry there. Probably was planted originally, and wasn't in any shape to explore for more.
