I Did IT

I finished my Birthday Walk at the Square Pole on the corner of Laurel and Harrison. As you can see in the above photo I walked 6.6 miles celebrating my 66th birthday!

Several people commented earlier, via blog and phone, that they would love to accompany me on my Birthday Walk but I was starting too early (6:06 AM) or they had to work.

But my friend Ed told me he was up for it and met me at Wiggly Giggly Park in time for chin-ups. Then we walked past various Oddities on our way to the Put In Creek bridge and guess who was patiently waiting there to join in the walk? My friend Jim!!

We three walked out the Ten Mile Haul Road until my GPS read 3.3 miles, turned around and headed home. Walking and talking as we ambled along sure made it easy and fun.

During our walk Ed spotted a Pintail Duck at Virgin Creek.

And I’m sure I disappointed this California Buzzard by walking right past him. He is going to have to wait a few more years before he gets me!!

It was a beautiful morning and a wonderful walk. Thanks guys for joining me!
