Last year we got into the habit of walking along the Peace River every day. We would start at the Fishermen's Villages, walk along the river through Gilchrist Park, under the highway, through Laishley Park to one of the small fishing piers and back. Laishley Park was completely rebuilt after the hurricane in 2004. This year, however, because Gilchrist Park does not allow dogs, we park in the Best Western lot and leave from there, walking to the farthest little pier and back. This takes us a couple of hours. Of course, we all have to make a potty stop, or 3 or 4 (for the dog) rest a little at the pier, sit in the sun for a minute or two, get a drink from the water fountain (which precipitates more potty stops) and finally return to the car.
This serves two purposes...Mr. Bill and I get some good exercise, which burns calories, which creates some weight loss. It would if we didn't come home and snack on M&M's and potato chips :o( Sir Titan gets some good exercise, which makes him very tired and laid back. Consequently, he spends most of the rest of the day like this...
He are a few photos of our walk...
As you can see, it's a really nice place for a walk!
Tomorrow is another farmer's market (our favorite) and the first CRAFT FAIR! Woo Hoo. I won't buy anything but it's fun to look.
Thanks for stopping by... (don't forget to feed the fish)
