Scenes from my morning walk
I calculated our walk this morning as nearing 7 or 8 miles, all totaled. It could be more, but it was hard to figure out precisely. It was a lovely walk. Four of us women, three dogs (two golden retriever pups and one sweet mutt). I didn’t take Lily, but I will as soon as I get her a carrier that I have in mind.
Anyway, we walked through a nature preserve, then through beautiful lakeside neighborhoods, on down into central Kirkland, and then back up the main street (a good mile of that up a gentle hill), and then back to our starting point. We walked for two hours and fifteen minutes. Probably 15 of that was eaten up by restroom breaks. So, still, that’s some good exercise.
Along the way, here’s a bit of what I saw.
A mama and daddy turtle, chilling on a log.
With the babies
This was the view as we walked down a residential street. If you aren’t familiar with the area, that’s the Seattle skyline in the distance, looking across Lake Washington.
A beautiful two-colored camelia bush. I’ve never seen anything like that. At least, I *think* that’s a camelia.
This tree was even prettier in person with the morning sun filtering through.
I was so envious of this upper deck on this house. Can you imagine sitting out there with some morning coffee staring off into the distance across the lake?
I also like this style of architecture.
I would have taken more pictures of homes, but I felt kinda weird snapping photos of people’s homes. There were some that were far more incredible than these two.
A resting spot.
I ended the day over at my daughter’s house. I had a belated Easter gift to give to my littlest grandson, Evan.
That’s a little blue lamb that his brother, Cayden, promptly named “Foofi”.
Finally, a quick self-portrait of my adorable grandson, Cayden, and me.
It’s been a great day. I’m exhausted. I calculated that I earned about 11 activity points during my walk. It better show up on the scale Monday or I’m really going to have to figure out what I’m doing wrong with my food.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
