Sea Mist in My Face

Sunday, April 29, 2012

I dropped Mom off at HairPort for her hair color and then I went to Krissy Field State Park to walk on the beach. This is the same long, long beach I walked last August when I was here. The sun was brilliant with a blue sky and with my long sleeve shirt I was hot. In spite of that I took my jacket and was very glad I did as the wind on the beach was fierce. I walked south to where the beach becomes impassable secondary to all the boulders. I climbed up, over, down and around the boulders and then turned around heading straight into the wind to return to the car. I like climbing on the rocks and figuring out how I should navigate. This is a long stretch of rock ( 1/2 mile) and with the tide coming in crashing against the lower boulders I wanted to make sure I had a passable route on the return.

I'm not getting into my zone 3, but I can't worry about it. I enjoyed this hike and I burned 457 calories and I'm happy with that.
Zone 1 = 35
Zone 2 = 28
Zone 3 = 01

    Sounds like a great walk. Whatever the calorie burn was, I'm sure it did your brain good in relaxing qualities, too, as walking by moving water shows calming benefits. And the sun helps. too!
