Comment of the Week
“Today was a good chance to spend more time outside for me. I’ve lately been going swimming 3 days a week at Golden Gardens beach. On nice days it’s really tricky parking there, like an airport. Today when I parked I took all I needed (bathing suit, towel and a jumprope) in my grab-bag so I wouldn’t go back to my car until I was actually leaving, so as not to disappoint a line of waiting cars. Since Chopin’s 1st piano concerto was on the radio when I arrived at the park I took an extra walk in the woods.
While this beach can be so crowded it may actually be good to have a mask available, I am not about to walk on a lonely trail in the woods wearing a mask, and I feel like a cat petted backwards when I see something doing that. This is time to enjoy my main guilty pleasures: hiking without a buddy, unmasked and unshod, and listening to classical music.”
-Sound like you’ve struck a great balance, Billy Gard.
