Distance: 6.5 miles, Home Stretch
Remember when Ciwt was feeling sorry for herself because she didn't have her very own marvelous garden? (See CIWT Fantasy Gardening 2/133 if it doesn't jump immediately to mind).
Well today, after over 35 years living right next to the Presidio and walking it often, she stumbled on a good 50 acres of groomed wilderness paths, glorious views, flocks and flocks of white pelicans, a coyote den (according to the signs), grazing goats, solitude and then a world class art exhibit* right near the world class Golden Gate Bridge. At no point was she further than 2 miles from her home. AND, she still doesn't have to do anything to maintain any of it.
* Perhaps more later. She went out today expecting a short little hike, so now her legs and feet are saying "Rest!"
