Along the way I was passed by a few people I know and they all waved and I waved back if I could tell who it was...I probably waved even if I didn't recognize them. I enjoyed the breeze/wind and admired the flowers in the ditches. I thought I'd take a detour and walk among the cottages instead of on the road. I had not been down some of these lanes this summer so it seemed like a nice diversion. I stopped for a few minutes and visited with the Pioneer Girls on their deck. A little farther down the lane I chatted with Dave of All Trades, who was getting a ride home, in the golf cart with one of my Georgia cousins. We talked about the lovely weather, when my other Georgia cousins are arriving and things going on at the farmhouse this year.
I continued up the lane and passed my favorite little cottage. We did not chat, but I nodded to it with appreciation. I checked out our beach to see if it still had sand after Arthur blew through here on Saturday. We do! This is going to be a lovely beach summer! Plenty of room for kids to play, adults to sit in chairs and walking in for a swim won't be as treacherous as it has been!

All of this, on one walk, in an effort to get my 3 points on the "stupid health challenge". Well, maybe it isn't stupid, but I am, for agreeing to participate in it while I'm up at the shore....or maybe I was smart. I'm not sure my level of activity was up to par with all the stopping and visiting but I was walking and standing for a very long time.
So....if I ever get bored or lonely up here I will just go for a walk. No wonder I love it up here!
