Nature walk

Saturday morning I had intended to go run a little on the trail, but my calves protested.  Probably because I had worn heels the night before at my PALMS Spring Social and my legs were sore from running on Thursday.  So I walked instead while Keira and Nick rode their bikes.  (Doug took Alex grocery shopping ... in case you were wondering where they were.)

I walked to the golf course, which is about 1.5 miles, at a pretty fast pace.  I was tempted to run a few times but refrained because I didn't want to injure myself and not be able to run this Saturday in my 5K race.  Keira and Nick rode ahead of me, turning around occasionally to see what was taking me so long.  :)  I really need to get a bike.

Anyway, on the way back, I walked a little slower and took in the sights.  And I stopped to take pictures along the way.

This was my view most of the time.  :)

Actually, this was my view most of the time.  :)

I thought this field of yellow flowers was so pretty.

I call this the Octopus Tree.

I got the kids to stop long enough to pose for a couple pictures.

Nicholas has hat hair from wearing his bike helmet.  :)

I'm going to buy a bike so I can keep up with the kids next time.  Although the peace and quiet were nice also ... when I wasn't hearing them fighting.  :)
