Not A Marathon

Today, after work, I decided that Tobias (dog) and I would walk as far as we could until Mr Pigalina finished work – time unknown.
I strapped on my walking shoes, donned my shorts, filled my water bottle, and we were off. It was pretty windy but we battled on, past the sheep fields, litter filled ditches and the scrap metal yard.
I reached the Green Island shops, which from Waldronville is quite a distance (Google map it!) and was feeling so proud of us. Then Mr Pigalina pulled up to give us a ride home. As I stopped my walking app I was surprised to discover we had only walked 3.5km which is less than the usual route! The straight line nature of the walk made it seem further than our usual loop.
At least we saw some different sights, such as this duck on the stream. One day we plan to walk the 13km to Mr Pigalina’s work…

Lunch With the Birds

Our lunch rooms at work have no windows. It could be snowing, sunny or robot aliens could have landed outside and you would never know.
Today, to take advantage of the sun before Winter sets in, I had lunch in the Botanic Gardens with Mr Pigalina, this friendly duck, lots of sparrows and many seagulls.
