Just wanted to let you guys know my legs are doing so much better! I went to my sister Lisa's new home in Whispering Pines, NC Friday and she showed me around the neighborhood! There are several lakes close by and this beautiful park!
Pictures are taken from the internet as I did not have a camera. It was well over 100 degrees Friday, but we managed to walk the whole distance of the lake. It was about 5 miles altogether that we walked according to my pedometer! The path was through the woods with the lake right beside us! It was such a peaceful walk with a gentle breeze blowing ever now and then making it bearable! We talked and marveled at God's work! We had walked the whole distance and my legs felt great! I think I like walking! I am thanking God for strengthening my legs!
Beautiful pictures, my husband and I are contemplating retiring to either North or South Carolina. We have to get out there and check it out. Thanks for sharing and congrats on the walk!! 3613 days ago
Hey Sis, so glad to hear your legs are improving --God is still at work! Your sis lives in a beautiful area ---I used to live not far from there in Cameron, actually worked in Vass. That part of the state is gorgeous,but of course my favorite part is the mountains of NC! 3619 days ago
What a beautiful area to walk in. God's masterpiece sure can be inspiring and invigorating, can't it? Glad your legs are better and that you were able to have this awesome experience. 3621 days ago
Isn't it amazing at what God can do. A beautiful place to walk with legs that don't hurt. Woo Hoo! It's funny, I struggle here at home to get a 2 mile walk in, but at the mountains I can walk forever.
REJ7777 Five miles is a LOT!!! I've found that walking in beautiful surroundings (and what beautiful surroundings those are!) makes the time go by so fast, that I don't even realize the mileage I'm covering. But of course, if your legs hurt, it's no fun at all. Praise God for strengthening your legs! And as you lose weight and increase your physical activity, walking will probably become even more enjoyable. It becomes a "blessed" cycle!
Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures! It indeed looks like a wonderful place for a long walk. And a 5 mile walk! Congrats!!! Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :-) Margie 3622 days ago
