Sunday, try as fate may, I was determined to get a walk in. My back muscles were tight and hurting, I was drained and tired, and didn’t feel like getting off my duff.
Personal experience, with my body has taught me that if I didn’t get up and go do something about the sore muscles I would feel worse on Monday and the pain and exhaustion would get worse.
So, off I went on my walk. My baby girl wasn’t feeling well so I didn’t want to get too far from home, but I did want to get 3-5 miles in. I headed to Three Oaks Park, I hadn’t walked there in quite a while.
The improvements they have made to the walking trail are fabulous! They have markings telling you how far you have gone, which direction to keep going so you know how far you are walking, and a loop that is a little more than 1.25 miles!
Small arrows point you in the correct direction to keep on the measured route. Very easy to see and very clearly marked. Only one area had enough pine needles on the trail to make looking for the markings difficult. VERY well marked path.
I dubbed my Sunday walk the “Day of the Squirrels” I must have seen a hundred of them, sometimes 3 at a time just sitting on the path looking at me until I was almost upon them, then they would scatter to the nearby trees.
What I really like about this park, besides the walking path, is that there are SO MANY different things for people to do. Even saw a couple little girls playing in the sprinklers as the maintenance team was working on the system.
A friend recently told me that the squirrel is a sign of big changes ahead. After seeing so many of the little critters all at once causes me great excitement to see what is ahead!
