Ended up walking the parking lots, shaded area, to make up the mileage. Visited places in the outer parking lots that I had never seen before.

  1. I wish we had a zoo near enough for walking. OTOH, walking our dead end road over and over is giving me a wonderful education in the flora and fauna of our neighborhood and I love watching the seasonal changes.

    Another bonus: I’m getting to know my neighbors. My next-door neighbor has started loaning/giving me books! Life’s small pleasures.

    But the real bottom line is the improvement in my health, both physically and mentally. A walk gets me outdoors, away from the big and little screens with their dire predictions. My perspective changes for the better. Legs stronger, heart stronger, etc.

    A walk is a good thing. Keep on doing it and posting it!
