The Path Not Taken

I always wondered why this part of the path along the water is usually a little muddy ... now I know.  When it's high tide it floods.
So today ... this was the path not taken!
Fall has finally arrived and it's much cooler here on Long Island.
I feel sad that another summer has passed.
Some people love this season ... but to me ... it's an end and I don't love it at all.
There are still some pretty things to look at ...
... but most of the flowers are gone ... and the trees are beginning to lose their leaves.
Pretty soon it will be so cold I won't remember complaining about the heat!
Tomorrow is a 20 mile training walk to Inwood.
I love my training team and look forward to seeing them.
Did I mention that we have committed to walking together in Dallas in 2012?
Of course, I want to take one step at a time ... and will register after I complete my 60 miles in Atlanta.

This morning Sandy was on the Today Show!  
Well ... she was on camera!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the 3-day folks told us to put on our 3-day shirts and put together our 3-day signs and make for Rockefeller Plaza!  It was not a beautiful sunshiney morning but Sandy made her way to the Plaza and had her 15 minutes (or 60 seconds) of fame!
I watched in my kitchen!


  1. Fall might be the end of one thing but it's also the start of another--great biking weather!

    (I would have been tempted to splash in the puddle there...regretted it, but tempted...)

  2. TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Even Jeter can not walk on water......

  3. look at sarge waxing poetic! poor baby is so tired right now he's headed for the bed. and i love that you watched the today show from your kitchen!

    smiles, bee

  4. I did a reunion post, check it out.
