Yesterday – we dicided to ride our bikes and then walk
a new Nature trail we discovered the other day.
We had found this by accident – a tunnel had been installed
In the new over 55 community being built one half mile away!
We were riding our bikes on the paved path
and just happened to glance over the bank and saw the entrance!
We followed the path and went trough the tunnel and found
THREE nature trails varying in length
three miles being the longest!
So , we parked the bikes and locked them up
and started walking through marsh lands and forests and watershed.
It was well done with gravel – small crushed pavement
and mowed so we did not get our feet wet.
It was quiet and NO ONE was to be seen!
This is called the Broad run water shed and eventually
ends up in the Potomac River!
We walked in the forest and in fields!
Walking – we received alerts on our phones
a rain storm was approaching
and we were about 2/3 the way through!
In addition to the makers and historical facts on signs
These what I think are entrances to storm drains
and they were hand painted – very cool!
The walk was through forests and marsh lands that had many
planted trees that had been protected with plastic tubes.
We saw many signs of animal prints and tracks
Deer – fox and maybe dogs I think!
The marsh was impressive as I had no idea it was there!
Needless to say – just as we finished it started to sprinkle.
We still had to bike almost two miles
in the rain.
On the way back – we got soaked
and Sherry had a accident and hit a curb with her knee
when she went down.
It ended up very painful – but we iced it
and today she is moving well.
We were afraid she had maybe cracked the knee cap.
She has been on our supplement of Juice Plus for 14 years
and building her immune system with nutrients
from Fruits – Vegetables and Berries
directly into her blood stream
Providing the recovery of physical things such as
her running the 10 mile cherry blossom race.
Her recovery from something like this that is not a break
is exceptional and myself also.
