I love my walks
Thursday, June 08, 2017
Every day I try to spend about 90 minutes walking. 10 minutes in the morning walking the 3/4 of a mile walk from my car to my office. An hour to 75-minute walk at lunch time and the 3/4 mile walk back to my car. It usually adds up to about 12,000 a day. Today I walked on the Bay. I walk on the Bay trail twice a week and in the industrial park that my company is in twice a week. I have found that walking in the opposite direction usually makes it sort of like a different walk. The Bay walk is nice since there are lots of birds. I am not a birdwatcher since I've never studied the different types and can't really tell one from the other except in the broad sense but I sure like having them around.
Here is a picture from today's walk on the Bay. As you can see there is a crane in the middle of the flood abatement ditch near my office
This year has been great because we have had lots of rain that has ended the drought we have had for the last several years. The flood ditches are mostly quite full of water and we have ducks, geese, and cranes all over the area. My facility backs up to the San Francisco Bay so the walk is quite nice. I'm really grateful for it.
