Squalicum Bay today

Lots of boats and blooming flowers 
A smallish group of us ladies met today to walk down to Zuanich Park and Squalicum Bay, just thirteen of us on a gloriously sunny and cool morning. I know how many there were, because as usual I was too slow for the fastest walkers, and too fast for the slower ones, so mostly I was by myself between the groups for all five miles. I counted six behind me and six ahead; it was a challenge for me to try to catch up with the fast walkers, and it helps me if I'm not distracted by conversation.

Yesterday I was too busy to get my garden plants into the ground and situated nicely with each other, but that is my task for today. As soon as I'm finished with this post, it will be on with the sunglasses and hat and some hours outside. This is just about perfect weather, partly sunny and temperature in the low sixties (16°C). I will put on a light jacket but as soon as I get busy out there, I will end up shedding it.

And after I get everything planted, I will document it with pictures. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

  2. A glorious view. And a definitely anti-onomatopeic name.
    Good luck in the garden. I will be in mine when it gets light.

  4. Lots of planting has been going on here too. We took the day off for a 1:00 Sounders match. More planting tomorrow before we head to the island for a few days.

  6. Nothing like the briskest 5 mile walk you can do for good exercise. I will plant radishes, onions and lettuce tomorrow.

  11. You need to find some middle of the road walkers like yourself. Still if you want to concentrate on the effort, perhaps in the middle is best. Get those hands dirty.
