I walked up to the park but could not walk the path I used to because it was closed. They have been putting in new sewers all along the river. So I cut over the ball fields and picked up another path behind the school. From there I could get to the other part of the path along the river. The sewers are being put in there too but there are sections that are finished and I could walk along some of it. There used to be a lot more trees right down to the river but they had to be cut down for the sewers. In time I'm sure the trees will grow back again.
Here are some pictures I took along the way.
The path goes right under Interstate 95.
I walked down by the river and took a picture.
I walked to the Pratt Bridge.
I used to continue my walk past the bridge and go to the left but it is closed for now.
I walked over the bridge, turned around and headed back.
The temperature was just above freezing and the paths look icy but it was crunchy ice so it wasn't slippery. It was a bit foggy in places but it burned off later in the day.
I ended up walking 7.2 miles.
It was nice getting to walk around the old places again but I am so happy that I have my lake to walk around and the many paths back home. :-)
My mom had her procedure done this morning and now we have to wait until Monday to get the results from the biopsy. That seems like a long time when you're waiting for results. She said it was not painful and she thanks you all for your prayers.
She is also having quite a lot of pain from another problem in her lumbar region which is related to the fall she took when her wrist broke. My mom is 80 years old and has been in very good health up till now. I just pray she will get back to her normal good health once again. Thanks for your continued prayers!!
I haven't done much else today. A little bit of knitting and playing around on the computer. Who knows what the rest of the day will bring!
Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you
and scorn in the one ahead of you.
