Nature Walk + La Posada = Fun Exercise

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I decided to walk around the lake behind the apartments today, and this time, I took the camera. My morning walk also doubled as a birding session. I saw hawks, gulls, sparrows, juncos, robins, and several northern flickers.

In the afternoon, I finally joined the annual posada. I've wanted to do that for years, but every time, something came up. This year, I made it. La Posada is a Mexican tradition, reenacting Mary and Joseph's search for shelter. At each stop, a choir sings and then joins the parade. The whole thing ended at the courthouse, where the Christmas story was read and acted out, accompanied by Christmas carols. A nice walk through town that put everyone in the Christmas spirit.

Added bonus: for the first time, I walked more than 10,000 steps a day!!!
