Walk this Way

Daily walks are essential to me, so today I set out to chart and time my route to work and find a good daily stroll.

What my walk to work looks like. What my walk to work looks like.

About twenty minutes later…

I arrive at the club house. I arrive at the club house.

Twenty minutes is perfect to clear my head before work, but for health and sanity at least an hour is required.

After an hour on the trails... After an hour on the trails…
Playa Escondido Playa Escondido
Kind of like home, but with a beach! Kind of like home, but with a beach!
The end of the trail. The end of the trail.

After a couple of hours on Rancho Santana’s clean but thankfully not overly groomed hiking trails, I will rest well and be ready for my first day at El Finca y El Mar.

What do you do the day before you start a new job?

  1. That’s a lovely walk you have there and I am jealous that you even get a beach in there. For me, I have a 20 minute walk to the bus station to get a bus to a job where I will be walking around all day before reversing the journey. It is nice to reflect on things as I walk but not nearly as nice as if I was walking your route.

    • I used to walk 20 minutes to the train when I lived in Chicago, I really loved it returning home at night. The night city is so beautiful, and felt very different than my afternoon trip. Walking renews no matter where you are πŸ™‚

  2. How lovely. Any dogs where you work or live? I like to get my bearings at a new job by walking around as well but it’s rarely as lovely as your photos.

    • Yes, there are two gorgeous security dogs, I’m trying to figure out how to get assigned to them πŸ™‚ And of course, sad scavenging dogs…I haven’t yet decided how to approach my relationship with them yet. Perhaps it’s a human predisposition to stroll a new situation.

    • I thought of that too, its not rocky like it is at my house. I used to run, but I don’t think my hips would take it now. It will be perfect for horseback riding though πŸ™‚ There are stables here! Thanks for the support Roy.

  3. Awesome! Your walk to work looks very different from my bike ride to work, which is through an industrial section of Portland. But we have the forest right up the street for hiking. Going to go enjoy that this afternoon.

    • I used to like to walk all the way down town(about 2 miles) to work when I lived in Chicago. The cityscape can be meditative in it’s own way. Portland has that wonderful feature of having both city and country though. Lucky you, I hope you had a great run, and junta con nature Britt. πŸ™‚
