A Walk at the farm

Thursday, September 19, 2013

For this restart in walking I decide to find a place to walk that was fun and kept my interest. Walking on the track at the gym or the treadmill bore me and even walking in my neighborhood is boring. So not to far from our home is a historical farm maintained by the county. It has animals but it was bigger when I was a kid. But it has all sorts places to walk. I love it and it is keeping me motivated. Also the trails are uphill and down hill and not paved so it is more like walking in the mountains. I look forward to heading my into the canyons again soon after I build up a little strength and endurance.

I love watching the ducks on the water in the morning with the smell of autumn in the air.

    Nice walk! I love the mallards. The geese (and sea gulls) have been gathering in groups for over a month now as they make interim rest stops on their southerly winter migration. They, too, have given me great enjoyment to see (from a distance). My mid October, I suspect the Lake Superior yachts and sailboats will be stored on land for what will be the upcoming winter months. Oh how I wish the fall colors would last a little longer. Enjoy these walks! Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    I know what you mean about getting bored with the track, the treadmill and the neighborhood. I wish I had a farm like that to walk on!

    Nature walks are so much nicer. I started running indoors and the boredom finally got to me. Now I ride my bike around one of my local parks.

    Awe love your picture, and I agree, I walk in a local park that has beautiful scenery and a play ground for kids. It's between our local schools so it feels safe and it's maintained daily or trash and debris. There's birds, squirrels, and rabbits to watch playing as well as pretty flowers and a stream. It's not safe around my area to walk and I can't afford a treadmill or a gym membership. This gives me all the opportunity I need for a daily walking area.
