About 5 weeks ago my husband and I started to walk in the evening. It isn't a substitute for regular exercise, although it's made a difference in my legs. We still cycle and my husband swims every morning at 5:30.
It's more of a winding down walk around the park close to our home. Yes, it is the same park "where I passed a boy " and I liked it last summer. No matter which paths we take through the park it's a 43 minute walk. Not to say we are creatures of habit or anything.
My husband gets home late and eats dinner first, so part of the walk is the dark. As, it's gotten warmer though, the bats are flying lower in the sky. Yikes! Sometimes I feel like they're swooping only inches from my head. We see other walkers now and then, but they aren't bothered by the bats.
Last week, I started wearing this hat, my bat hat. I feel invincible with my bat shield. I may have been bat girl in a former life. I also carry a tiny red flashlight, but of course bats can't see and operate by sonar or radar or something I should have paid better attention to in school. All I know is that bats are everywhere in New Jersey, and I'm just finding this out!
It's our wedding anniversary this weekend, so I'm planning on some kissing. I hope you are planning the same. Have a wonderful few days,
