My Walk Today
Saturday, July 07, 2012
My husband has a very nice DSLR (a digital camera with different changeable lenses) camera and I went for a walk with it today. Only about 6 miles that took me almost 3 hours. Yes, quite a slow walk, but rather enjoyable.
First, a picture to show you how dry things are here in Waukesha, WI.
While it is dry though, the heat wave has finally broken here as evidenced by this photo.
I walked down the bike trail which runs alongside the train tracks. It is a paved bike trail that goes from Waukesha to within about 5 miles of Madison. I have only gone from Waukesha to about 3 miles passed Dousman, WI and back so far. But today, I was only walking from my house to downtown Waukesha towards the river than back home again.
I also saw an interesting bird today that let me get fairly close before it took off in flight.
All in all a fun walk and a good beginning to a weekend. I am a bit tired tonight, but had a nice bath with a tiny bit of ice cream for dessert and am not over calorie, yet! (Don't believe I will be either.)
