A day in the park

Monday was one of the nicest days we have had in quite sometime.  The sun was shinning but not hot with the temperature in the middle seventies.
Nancy felt a little better, so I asked her if she felt good enough to go to the park to walk.
She said she did which surprised me.
So we got ready and went to the John Chesnut Park to do our walking.


Nancy and I have not been to this park in a couple of years and noticed the bridge over the water was added during that time.
We also noticed the Azalea were in bloom.

I just couldn't pass up getting a close up of the blooms.  Just think it is still in the winter season.

After a stop at the rest rooms we were on our way to walk.

Before getting on the boardwalk I read the signage of what we might see and also what is not permitted on the walkway.

We also noticed that the boardwalk was renewed and also elevated three foot and fenced so small children would not fall off.

The only animals we saw were squirrels. I did hear a couple of owls talking back and forth.

One of the bridges that they have to cross the water.

This is Tarpon Lake and why we enjoy walking here, because most of the time there is a cool breeze coming off the lake.

Going back home we saw this osprey nest and the osprey in the nest looking around.

It was getting passed our supper time so we stopped at Caposey's to have something to eat.
We both had the special, oven roasted chicken white meat with rice and coleslaw.

After eating it was time to head home after a very good day.
Nancy walked more then I thought she would.  I did walk a little more than she did.

Nancy could feel she over did it with her walking by, the way she was moving slow yesterday and today. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Always healthy getting out for walks. The stiffness you are feeling right now are the muscles that haven't been used in a while are tightening up. Give yourselves a day off then get back to it even if you are still stiff. The more you do it you'll feel better and all the stiffness will disappear.
Be Safe and Enjoy the exercise.

It's about time.
