Hope it's good for walking

We're headed for Lakeside on Lake Erie today. Seems a storm took a huge chunk of one of our trees. Lakeside is a Chautauqua community owned by an association controlled by the United Methodist Church. We own our home, but not the land on which it sits. So it looks like we'll be stuck getting rid of the fallen limb. I really don't do much yard work--just enough to get into poison ivy (that was back in 1989), but I hope to get some walking in along the lake if it stays warm. Although I don't set goals (I'm a problem solver and we hate goals), I might consider thinking about 4 miles. I'll let you know when I get back.

Feral cats are these "bumps on a log" in the photo taken by our neighbor

Update: I got in my 4 miles, so I'm up to 31 now. It's been a great day to walk, but a storm and cold weather is to move in tonight. And the association workers came while we were there, cut up the limb and hauled it away. What a relief! And entire tree was gone on our neighbor's property, and it looks like it pushed in the screened porch when it fell, because the kitties in the above photo were living on their porch.

4 miles! Wow! Are your legs tired?

No. I split it up 2 miles in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and 1 in the evening. I can't do 4 miles at a stretch. Or a limp.

Wow, this pic looks like a work of art when you first glance at it. I think you guys are doing a wonderful thing .... I wish I could say that to each of you. I would like to do something like this next year. All I did this year was give up coffee. And that was rough! Anyway, congratulations for doing something good for spirit and body.
