I tried to do a flip on the pull-up bars. I remember as a child growing up in
Sam's has been very into the monkey bars this year and last. He has calluses on his hands which he doesn't mind because they allow him to reign. He hasn't moved on to these big bars yet but I'm sure he'll have them mastered soon. Maybe, if I keep walking like we walked on Saturday, I can join him someday.
On our way to the end of the peninsula, we stopped to have a picnic.
We used to try to sell things on the side of the road when I was young and at the time, we couldn't understand why everyone would not stop. Once, I remember we "sold" what we thought were especially lovely rocks. I think they were probably from a neighbor's driveway but they were white and sparkly. Now I can't believe anyone bought one from us but I distinctly remember at least one lady stopping.
Sam and I tried to have a hot cocoa stand in
Just past the girl, we saw a group of boys out on a cool pier.
My grandfather used to take me fishing when I was young. I was thinking it would be fun to take Sam crabbing when he returned. But I'm not sure what we would do with any crabs we caught. I have been looking longingly at them at the store but don't know if I would have the heart or stomach to take them home and eat them. Plus, I don't know about the regulations yet or if these crabs are safe to eat, etc. Regardless, it was fun watching them have so much fun.
We walked along. Now, instead of being on public walkways, we were walking along the road - between the traffic and people's driveways. They weren't sharing much of their access to the bay-front property. We did walk by this tiny castle that was public and were still had access to views of the bay. Our view was just often obstructed. And the road was curved which meant we'd walk left then the road would turn and we'd walk right then back left then back right which was fine but we weren't making forward progress very fast. At least there was another park along the way. We stopped there lay in the shade to relax for a bit before continuing on.
In the end, we walked about four miles from our home to the end of the Tiburon peninsula. The about eight miles coming home the other way. I appreciate
I needed a day of rest yesterday to recover but I'm feeling better today and can reflect back on the experience fondly. Maybe today we’ll head over to REI so I can get some proper hiking shoes…
