Wonderful Wednesday walking workout.

Friday, February 15, 2013

This past Wednesday, I woke up at 2 am. Mind whirling kind of a thing.
Well, needless to day, I was a bit groggy, in the morning, with a full day ahead.

So off to work I went. Luckily, for me, I was headed downtown, to do a few quality control checks, renew a badge and just check out that territory in general.

If any of you know downtown Richmond, you are well aware of its history and hills!

The clouds sent a light drizzle, but nothing threatening.
Here are a few photos of my walk.
Check out these steps and they were only a few of the ones I went up!
They are outside of the State Capital.
There are many beautiful walkways, nearby.
Here is the Governor's mansion
A statue of George Washington is in the circle.
General Stonewall Jackson .
The old city hall is beautiful, both inside and out. Evidence of progress, is ever present as a new building is being buil t, across the street.
OK, now time to go back, with one last look at Capital hill.
Whew! That was great! I then went to Mama's and rode her stationary bike for 30 minutes.
Sorry, Irene, I tried not to fall off again! lol
I felt like a champ!
When I got home, I felt so relaxed, that I just lit a fire in the fireplace and sat there with some tea.
Made a good supper of fire roasted vegetables!
Watched Survivor being grateful, that I , myself had survived, the day!
Bed felt great and I slept like a rock. emoticon

    Beautiful Chris. After all of that walking I can't blame you for falling off the bike.

Hoping you are feeling better by now. I love the pictures. I forgot, just what is your job? Sounds very interesting. Have a great Fri, and a wonderful weekend.

    LOL we have the same dishes.

Beautiful pictures Chris. You must have been out very early, there are no people.

I am glad you ended your day in front of a fire, relaxing and being truly thankful

Hugs Mary

    What beautiful scenery on your walk Chris! A long walk but the sights would make it go quickly and make it worth the while.
Bike is still sideways, lol.
Love the fire and meal and comfort in the evening!

    I totally envy your day. I must come up to Richmond. We visited Lexington, Va last year and enjoyed the lush green pastures as we passed by them on our drive to an area park in Lexington for a "Singing In The Park". emoticon
