Back In the Saddle Again

After a taking a couple of months off from our Monday walks due to rainy weather, holiday travel and guests, we resumed our modest exercise regimen this week, making our grand tour of Honolulu’s Waterfront Park once again.

Nothing much has changed at the park since we last walked there. As usual, I looked for anything out of the ordinary and except for spotting a couple of Brazilian cardinals, couldn’t find a thing different.

There were the usual banded and barred doves, mynah birds, feral cats, a couple of white egrets, and 7 Pacific golden plovers.

We bumped into a friendly lady we’d seen there many times; she interrupted her singing while walking to say hi to us. The cat lady was there as usual, feeding the feral cats, and the same homeless guy with his little tent was taking his nap on the grass.

Except for the fact that my butt and thighs started aching from under-use, it felt good to be back in the saddle again.

I can't wait to get back to my routine also. The weather was nuts and then the weather was beautiful and I was nuts (as in deathly ill) Hopefully all will even out.
