Once a month, I take a medicine (risedronate for male osteoporosis) that mandates I do not lie down for a minimum of 30 minutes. I take the residronate with 8 ounces of plain, tap water (several hours before any food, other liquids, vitamins or other medicines) while standing up and then I go out for a walk.
Yes, I know, you all know that I have been doing this for four years, so what's the big deal.
Today the big deal is posting the photos that I took on my walk this morning and publishing my first post here on blogspot for the month of September 2021.
Patti and I never seem to get tired of our beautiful neighborhood so perhaps you will also enjoy a revisit.
Since I walk part of the way to Hillstrand Pond on the street..
I asked Patti a silly question as I set off to go.
"Patti. Do you think I am visible?"
"Yes Cap! You certainly are very visible!"
So out and off at 11:11AM this somewhat dark Autumn Thursday morning I went. It was a delicious and coolish 45°F as I set off on my walk.
Looking up the street as I walk from our condo.
A look back at our building.
And up the street I begin.
In the distance (see the red stop sign in the below photo) is 20th Avenue.
When I am out on one of my walks, I keep in touch with Patti by texting her. My first check in text originates here at 20th Avenue.
Across 20th Avenue I go, heading for the path into Hillstrand Pond. The path is just behind the car on the left in the below photo.
Now we head up the path into Hillstrand Pond.
In the distance, at the end of the path in the photo below, is a paved trail that I will turn to the right onto and proceed to Hillstrand Pond.
Turning right onto one of the extensions of the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail System (please see the below links) we are close to Hillstrand Pond.
In the next photos below, Hillstrand Pond is past the bridge in the distance to the left.
Nice. Very nice!
Continuing across the bridge, we look back at it in the below photo. The water under the bridge is flowing from the right to the left.
