Perfect Weather for a Walk!

Look what I saw on my walk today.
I hope this picture is clear. (I'm typing on my little netbook and I'm never sure of what the picture looks like enlarged.)
Today is a PERFECT day ... highs in the 80s and not a cloud in the sky.  I left the house MUCH later than I wanted to.  (The trick is NOT to turn on the TV.  I start watching some of the morning stuff and just can't drag myself away!)  I had a leisurely walk for 4-5 miles.  I stopped to say hello to this guy and his friends:

A group of geese (would that be a gaggle???) made their way across Shore Road and are now at Baxter Pond.  No geese in Mill Pond but I did see a number of white birds diving into the water to catch fish.  Wonder what they are.
No swans today.
Wonder where they went!
Susan G. Komen has just posted the calendar of events for 2012.
Some of my friends have already signed up for walks!
I have to take it one step at a time.  Can't make a commitment this far in advance!  
Gotta get another 60 miles under my belt first!


  1. I knew I was going to sign up to walk next year! San Diego here I come!

  2. I haven't signed up yet, but I'll be walking San Diego for sure. Possibly San Francisco. If Mike doesn't hate it, he'll probably do medical crew again next year in SF.

    But man, there are a lot of people upset with the way crew assignments are being done for 2012. Sounds like it was a sign-up-free-for-all and most of the crew slots are already spoken for long before this years' walks have even been done. There are some very upset long-time volunteers out there...

  3. Oh dear - I thought it was good to pick your crew assignment as you registered. Oh well.
