Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

A new walking route "The Pond."

Yesterday I walked around a new neighborhood that I haven't walk before. Today I went back to that same neighborhood and found a pond to walk around. Here is my walk in pictures and a few words.
I walked straight down the road where I live.
Passed up the one entrance path that I usually take to walk to the lake and passed up the second entrance too.
Took this picture of a new skate park in the distance that was built not too long ago and where my grandson Antonio likes to skate.
Turned in here and kept to the left.
Kept walking down the road
until I came to here to the start of the path around the pond.
It is 2 1/2 miles from my door to here. The path around the pond is one mile.
This entire surface of this little pond by the beginning of the path to the pond as you can see is covered in algae. I heard a few frogs croaking.
These next pictures I took walking on the path to and around the pond.
This last picture is at the completion of the path around the pond.
I walked back home again for a 6 mile walk.
It took me 1 hour and 34 minutes and I took 12,462 steps.
Since it was early Sunday morning, I had the whole walk around the pond to myself. It was such a great place to walk and one that I plan to walk many times. :-)
I'll call this route "The Pond".

I feel so lucky to have so many great places to walk.
Happyone :-)
