We have been quite spotty on our walks lately--waiting for insoles to arrive in the mail does that, I guess.
DH's insoles are still en route. My new ones arrived on Friday.
|New insoles for boots. Also a pair of sox!|
Took a 4 mile walk yesterday with these socks and the new insoles. (That's about 6 1/2 km. for anyone counting in metric.)
|Insoles in place--I had to loosen almost the entire lace on each boot to put them on.|
|Rose at a subdivision entrance, right by Bentsen State Park. One of the Austen rose hybrids?|
|Retama blossoms. This tree grows in places with lots of water and accepts a certain amount of poor drainage. I would think twice about buying any house in an area called "Retama View!"|
|Part of the Hike n Bike, between the bridge and Bentsen park. Road on right is W Military Highway, a trail once used by Gen. Zachary Taylor to patrol the US-Mexico border.|
|Silly nanny sign of the day: Bentsen State Park. It's a nature garden. It's outside. OF COURSE there are snakes in the area!|
That next one will be a longer walk than 4 miles, as last year I didn't find out problems with my first pair of boots until we did a 10 mile walk. Four miles just isn't enough to find any problem that will develop with walking, in my opinion.
