Stunning trails

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I did another early morning walk up into the highlands leaving the condo at 7 am sharp. I walked to a friends home arriving just before 8 am. I walked up to the door - the house is dark - should I or shouldn't I ring the door bell? I hesitate - then push the door bell. It seems to echo through the house - there is movement. A orange cat comes to the door and puts his paw against the window and I play with it for a few moments with the glass separating us. I guess they are all in bed or gone so I turn around and head home. I am having lots of pain in my left knee - it has been getting worse these last three days as I climb and descend this route. I think I must stop going up into the Highlands everyday - thanks to the car accident injury. That is OK - there are so many flatter areas to walk that are just breath taking.

So at 9 am I arrive back in the condo quite hungry so ate porridge with berries for breakfast . Then sat in front of the computer and TV until 1 pm - then Noni and Dalhouise and I drive over to Nexen beach and take a stroll around the ocean side enjoying the sun soaking in that vitamin D. Just over an hour later we finished this.

    It is wonderful to see pictures of your area! Gorgeous! And it sounds wise to try and go on flatter paths when you can so that your knee has time to rest.

    Sorry - Not the Scotland highlands but the Squamish BC housing up over looking the valley.

    You talk about the "highlands" are these photos taken in Scotland? I almost don't thinks so. Thanks for sharing your photos as they are lovely to look at. I hope your knee is going to feel better, soon.
