A big walk

We were lucky to have really gorgeous weather today. It was warm, sunny, and just a bit windy. The forecast called for possible rain in the afternoon (which we didn't get) so we went out for a walk in the early afternoon.

I haven't walked like that since the epic walks of last summer and it felt good to go out and walk for a while. We ended up walking over on the main trail by the river (which is very hilly in places). We'd hoped to see some interesting birds but there wasn't any wildlife out there today.

It's going to be a very pretty walk once things start to grow. There are a lot of trails off of the main trail going into wooded areas and along the river that we'd also like to explore. We'll definitely spend some time exploring all of these trails over the summer. I'll also be able to go for my epic walks in the summer along these trails. The fact that these trails are a bit hilly will make the walks a bit more interesting.

We were both tired after the big walk and needed naps when we got home. When you don't do much physical activity, an almost two-hour walk is a lot of work and very tiring. No matter how fun the walk was, of course we'll be tired afterward.
