Up Sheets Creek

Yup ... I walked up Sheets Creek today.  Sheets Creek East that is!  Sheets Creek is on Manhasset Isle ... and it's a pretty little spot where it looks like someone has built lovely condos.
Here's what you see just beyond Sheets Creek:
LaMotta's Restaurant and ...

another marina!
I like this marina because there are really nice little houseboats here. (See them on the rightish?)
I decided not to do the training walk to Governor's Island today.  I thought I'd give my poor foot and the old plantar fasciitis a break.
I was out for about two-and-a-half hours ... so let's call it 6 miles today (allowing for slow walking and stopping to get water and a Planters Peanut Bar...DELICIOUS!)  The heel feels ok.  I know that wearing flip flops is a BIG mistake ... so I'm going to order some special sandals today as a gift to myself ... and to my poor feet!
As you ... my loyal followers know ... I sent my first fundraising letter out yesterday morning.  I'm excited to say that in a day I'm half way to my goal.
I love you, too!
And I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I'm walking for YOU!


  1. Did you have a paddle? I'm pretty sure when walking up Sheet's Creek you should have a paddle...

  2. I hate to tell you that Jeter is being a slacker again.......

  3. Saw you're an activist! Great to stumble on your blog! Have you heard of Freedom of Access to Medicines? The non-profit leading the effort against the FDA from disproving the drug Avastin on June 28, which is currently working for 17,500 women with Metastatic Breast Cancer!
