Walking The Wrong Way....


Dick and I have walked the Cherokee Park Loop since spring....always the same way. We have talked about walking the opposite direction....this morning, after much ado, we finally did it! We soon found out though we evidently were walking ....the wrong way.

We must have passed 20 signs saying... wrong way, wrong way!

We got slap happy after awhile..

These bikers actually said hello when they passed us..

the ones with the cool outfits usually don't.


Our favorite house err..mansion. The front yard has cascading ponds and all sorts of plantings that change daily...lillies, roses, black eyed susans...gorgeous! Smells great too.




These cell phone pictures do not do these houses justice...they are lovely


A few houses on our walk are For Sale... if you love houses...
these are beautiful...

This one just went on the market this week...








The last turn..the golf course is on the left.

That's were I saw the deer in the mist..gorgeous!



This is the end of our walk in Cherokee Park every day, The Scenic Loop

Since starting to walk in the park we have increased from 3 miles a day

to 4.32 miles..

Sure doesn't feel like the wrong way....it feels right!

Baby has on his rock, paper, scissors shirt Cheri gave him...used to be too tight to wear...so proud of him. Walking with Dick up hills and down in this park is heaven to me. I'm forever grateful to have the second chance to get out and walk....never for one minute do I ever take it for granted....it feels so right!

You are such a rebel :) I LOVE the houses!! I am thinking a move would be nice! I snorted about the bikers in the fancy get-ups cause I always think the same thing!
