3-Day Adventure -- Part II

Yesterday morning was a bit muddled because the notice about the practice walk indicated the time to meet would be 8 AM CENTRAL Standard Time. We showed up a little after 8 just in case anyone was there and the notice was wrong about the time. It's not uncommon, this close to Alabama, to have time indicated to be CST. So, no one there at 8, we went to breakfast and came back at 8 CST. Well, there were three walkers there and they were finishing up! So, we had a total of 5 show up on Saturday and we exchanged e-mail addy's and decided that starting in August we'd meet every Saturday morning at 8AM EASTERN Standard Time in order to get ready for the 3-Day.

It turns out that the Bremen walking circuit is 0.75 mi around, so 9 circuits is 6 miles. When you look at it that way, it doesn't seem quite as super challenging. 9 circuits doesn't seem as long as 6 miles. Crazy, I know, but that's how I see it anyway.

Afterwards we went to an outdoor festival in Rockmart and I got a really cool sea grass basket for $35. If I'd bought it in Charleston, it would have been $135, but in Rockmart it was $35. It's really lovely too.

Hope you and yours had a good day.

I love those smaller circuits because if you have a problem, you can stop when you get back to the beginning, too.
