Sunday Walks in My Part of the World
Other bloggers share photographs of their places on earth and I always enjoy seeing where people are and what physical surroundings might influence them and their work. We are blessed to live in a beautiful place, and I want to share.
For almost a year now, my husband and I have made a practice of taking a hike each Sunday morning. We drive somewhere, near or far, and take a picnic lunch. Then we hike a few miles. Then we find a nice spot to eat our picnic, sometimes in our folding camp chairs, or at a handy picnic table, or even in the car, if it is cold (which it has been lately, sometimes, along the coast). This year, we are exploring the Sonoma County Regional Parks. We have lived in Sonoma County since we met in 1971, and are finding new places we’ve never visited before. This morning took us to Helen Putnam Park near Petaluma, where we lived when we were first married, and when the babies were born. It was a glorious day, and we were treated with beautiful views and a lovely walk.
