A little walking

Well it looks like Monday was a different day for us.
I asked Nancy if she felt like doing a little walking and It surprised me when she said yes.  So we went down to the James E Grey Preserve to do our walking.

The first thing you see when you park the car is the boat launch where in the last year they have made some improvements. Such as a boardwalk and a better way to launch a kayak.
The river is nice and slow moving with low hanging tree branches.

After leaving the boat launch there is a large bulletin board showing the animals there you may see in the Preserve.  You might see some of these animals but the only animals we saw was this and more lizards and a few squirrels.
After a short walk through the grassy area you come to a very nice elevated boardwalk.

We came to the place where we usually look over in the water but the river is flowing so low that it didn't have any water here.

But the island with the tall palm tree had plenty of water around it. This is one of those nice spots to take a photo.

Well it looks like us old folks got a little tired from not doing too much walking these days and had to sit to rest the old bones for a while.

We did reach the spot where there is a pavilion where there is a curve in the river that you can look up and down the river.

We saw several fish that looked to be nearly a couple of feet long.

When we got through walking and not had having lunch we where getting hungry so we went to Steak and shake to eat. We each had a burger mine with fries and Nancy had onion rings both meals were delicious.  Nancy also got a milkshake to go with both of us finishing that on the way home.

Yesterday we both was at the doctor for our back for the winter check up. I've had a sore shoulder for a long time so the doctor gave me a referral  to see a Orthopedic Specialists.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Glad you are finding things to keep you busy for the winter. Keeping yourselves moving is a great way to limber the body. We all need to do more of that.
That looked like a nice park to get that exercise in.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
