Last night’s text posts just seemed kind of blah, graphically, so I used the opportunity of Linda, Cassie and I taking another old favorite hike – or actually a short part of it – to snap a couple of pix to perk things up.
This morning we drove to the parking lot at the foot of Windy Hill and did a 3.5 mile loop, steeper even than last week’s Arastradero hike that saw me huffing and puffing (but making my way) even as my very fit spouse climbed nonchallantly ahead of me. The good news is that this work, if i keep it up, will steadily build me back up to some kind of physical shape.
We walk 4 miles – albeit flat ones – on Adobe work days and 2.5 miles on work@home days for a respectable 17 miles per week plus whatever we do on weekends, so nominally just over 20 this week (vs the 30+ I was jogging previously). I have a ways to go, but the journey is begun.
Today’s hike was under a beautiful winter sky that changed by the minute. Now that the Lumix has a bag, with stuff like a polarizer in it, I’ll have to remember to throw it in the car for photo missions like today’s hike. The polarizer, and spare battery, would have been handy…
