Walk: No; Too much fun riding around in my car with a friend
Distance: Couple of blocks and small (but pretty demanding) home yoga practice
They are rarer these days, but Ciwt never outgrows a road trip with a good friend. For Ciwt this requires a comfortable and fun to drive car and, most important, a great companion where the conversations are interesting and the decisions are easy.
Today was one of those trips. Ciwt had a couple of places to check out and wanted her friend's input in case there was something she missed in the viewing. The is how it went:
On the way to place one I interrupted our conversation to say: The road to this place is beginning to get me down. My friend: Yeh, the trees are closing in; it looks dark.
Nearing the actual place: Ciwt: Does this do anything for you? Friend: Not a thing, but maybe if we get out and walk around .. Ciwt: Me either; no need to stop.
Nearing second place. Friend: This is where the scenery really gets to me. Hills everywhere with tall trees; I feel penned in. Ciwt: I totally agree; should we head back? Friend: Yes.
On the way back we started discussing a couple of places that weren't on the list. Ciwt: Want to check those out? Friend: Sure. We did and both thought these places were light, bright, energetic, much better.
Then we ate late lunch at a place we both like - and where we ordered the same meal. Easy, comfortable, stimulating, fun.
Ooops, wrong pic. Here we go:
