254/365

I actually walked to the supermarket this morning!!  I know "Walked" in Texas!!  Who knew people did such things.  I wanted to check out how far it was and how long it would take so when my nephew comes to stay at Christmas we can walk to Starbucks!!

254/365

I set off about 9.50am with my trusty "cool backpack"

and walked past the fountain


along the neighbouring streets


around a few bends


and through some shady glens


I stopped in at the local dentist and registered us all and then walked around the corner to the supermarket.  It took about 20 minutes and in that time I didn't see another soul out walking.  I saw one lady on her bike and about 6 cars.  We obviously live in the quiet part of town!  I got back about 11am, hot and tired but happy I'd been out and about.  The locals probably think I'm nuts but I actually miss going for a walk.

  2. I've noticed that about the US (outside of places like NYC) ~ no-one walks. Ever. Walking is good for you and probably good for weight loss in the Texan heat!
