AN EARLY MORNING WALK IS ...

 



"An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day." 

~Henry David Thoreau~




Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American naturalist, essayist, poet and philosopher.  


The turtle in my photo is the Red-eared Slider and information about it can be found here.

  5. So true! We just back from our early morning walk. It's tiring walking 8 kilometers direct after an-hour strength training, but at the same time that you feel like you have accomplished something :-)

  7. this is good to know, I have walked every morning for 5 years, and only missed 10 days out of those five years. I am afraid the blessings are not making it through though, Murphy's Law has intervened, although I am blessed when I consider the fact at counting down 4 weeks to age 78 I Can and Do walk every day. that is a blessing

    1. That's an impressive record Sandra :) I hope Murphy's Law has gone on vacation by now and the blessing will be forthcoming.
