Cindy - Florida - Tuesday 9:00-10:00 AM

Today's walk was more about necessity than desire. When I got into my car this morning, to take my son to school, I turned the key and nothing happened, again! My husband jump started it last night but I guess it didn't get enough juice. So, with no time to spare I grabbed my camera, walked my son to school and signed him in a little late. Here's a little collage of his campus.
I continued my walk around a nearby neighborhood. The sun was glaring at this hour. I focused on the sharp shadows on the wall, which enclosed the houses. The brief moments in the shade were so refreshing!
There was an abandoned shopping cart sitting at the entrance of the neighborhood. I sat down on the ground behind it to get a more interesting shot. After all, shopping carts are not very attractive.
Later this afternoon at4:45 I went for a second walk by necessity. It was football practice time. I walked, Noah biked and Matthew rode his longboard. While at the school I decided to do a little more walking around the track. One lap is 1/8 mile. I did 9 laps. This picture was taken from my morning walk. I did not bring my camera, as I had too many things to carry. That shopping cart would have come in handy this evening!

Was your walk energized today?!
Have a great night!

Creatively sitting! I like it!

Actually, I really do like your shopping cart shots. Aren't you glad we've been walking for more than a month and you are completely prepared to walk at a moment's notice?! Other than the inconvenience of your car not starting, I bet it wasn't too bad!

I like your track shot. It's a motivator! Great post!
