I had a quiet Easter. I guess it was what I needed. I went to brunch with friends then came home and read. I decided to get out and walk because I saw the weather forecast for the week and it involves a lot of much needed rain, which is not good walking weather, for me, anyways.
I have mentioned before I live near the beach and today, the beach was my destination. It is about a 15 minute walk from my apartment but I went the round about way so it was longer. Wollaston Beach is not a nice beach. It is rocky like so many beaches around here and it is sketchy to swim in but it is great to walk in. There is a long sidewalk along the beach that is a couple of miles long and is not as crowded as some of the other great close to the water walking places near by (Castle Island, I am talking to you).
It was very quiet down on the beach. I could do some thinking alone.
The beach itself is made while rocky, was calming.
My walk was about 4 miles. I used Map My Run and after about a half mile, I finally figured out how to work it and it tracked me for 3.64 miles so I must have walked over 4 miles. It felt good.
I hope that everyone had a safe and happy holiday weekend. The whole weekend was quiet for me. I am not going to complain. I have been watching nature programs and reading, a lot.
On the way home from brunch today, I was hit on by an 80 year old and asked out. He asked me to “be his friend” and winked at me. The old devil. He asked me if I had a boyfriend and I said no and he said, “I’ll be him.” He had to be at least 80 but it made me smile.
