Today there were 22 of us ladies who met on a cold and clear Saturday to walk to Fairhaven and up Taylor Avenue and then down the stairs. Some women decided to go up the avenue and down the stairs, while others (me included) walked up Mill Street, so we could go up the stairs and down the steep street instead. It's easier on my knees, and the day was simply beautiful whichever direction you took. Blue cloudless skies and no wind made us warm up quickly. Starting out was cold, but it didn't last long as we hustled along. We all met up again and started back.
New building going up in Fairhaven
I smiled at the whale going through the side of this building. It's being called the Orca Building, so I guess the whale makes sense. It certainly is an eye catcher. No wonder they are listed as endangered if they act like this (smile).
Almost back to level ground
Taylor Avenue has an elevation of somewhere around 400-500 feet in a short distance, which is why it's such a great workout. Here you can see some of my women friends walking ahead; we were on our way back to our starting point. It was just simply a perfect way to begin the weekend.
