Finally, I was able to reach 30,000 steps in a day.
As always, I started before the sun was up. I do that because I can get more steps and enjoy my walk more because it's not that hot and there are less vehicles along the way.
I jogged from home to the park and jogged/walked to where I can see the sunrise.
On my way there, I took a photo of the moon for it was still shining brightly like it does not want to leave. The after photo was not my intention to take a photo of but thank God that I did look back when I was leaving the place I had a view of the sunrise. It goes to show how far the reach of the sunlight is.
I didn't wait for the sun to be come up that's why I went on my way and chose to go to two of my routes.
Some parts of the city was enshrouded in fog even though the sun can already be seen. I should have worn lighter outfit. For the sun rose really quickly.
This is how it looked like in some parts of the city. That area has more trees than the others so it is colder there and thus the fog is suspended there longer than anywhere else. The tall white building is one of the luxury hotels in the city. We have been there once and tried their cafe and we liked what we ate. I saw their post in fb about a buffet but these days buffet's are not as appealing to me for I cannot eat as much as before anymore. I easily fill up.
The line on top of that photo is from the electric wires that were blocking the view. I initially wanted to crop the photo but left it at that and just placed my name on it. Wires are one of the things we dislike to see here in the city. We call them spaghetti wires.
I was now on my third route the final leg of my walk. I like the lens flare on this one like a rainbow about to happen. I also like how the clouds seem to run up. They are like some creatures racing towards the heavens.
About three-fourths of the way, I saw this horse being bath by his handler/owner. The handler was hidden at the back of the horse making it look like this horse has six legs. I can only crop as much.
I have been saying that whenever I pass Wright Park where there are horses for hire, I see a few horses. I had my answer for that now. Along this route, there were lots of horses that I have passed by. They were bathed and were getting ready to go to the park. That's why I don't see them at the park that early for they are being brought home by their owners/handlers and just a few of them were left at the park.
By this point in time, I was so ready to go home. I was at 21,879 steps. I am fatigued and weary that I almost can't finish my walk. So I sat there and rested for some minutes. You can tell by this point that the sun is already high and shining mightily strong and hot. The guy on the left is delivering water to the household below him. I wanted to spray me with that water instead to cool my body down. All I can think about this point is something cold to drink or eat and I planned to do just that after my walk.
Finding the needed strength, I pushed on.
A few days ago, a friend posted about murals to be displayed at the park and of the paintings there will be his. This is my final stop before going home.
One lane of the lake was closed for joggers/bikers for it was there where the murals were placed. It was wide enough to allow for physical distancing to be observed. These murals will be on display for three days, the last day would be tomorrow.
Here are the list of all the artists who contributed their works for this said event.
These are just some of the paintings that one can see there. One of the paintings was done by the father of another friend of mine. It's the the right part of the top left photo. What happens is that these paintings are collaborations of two artists.
I didn't get to see the painting of my friend. I didn't know the backs of these paintings were works of other people who contributed to that event. I plan to go back and check the backs of these paintings hopefully before the event ends.
This art installation was made of scraps, some were old sewing machine and old pump, pipes, etc.
On the other side is this totem pole.
They also filled the lake with koi fish.
There was also this guy who had been painting the lake scene.
So that's where my walk had been. I still had the strength and energy to go a nearby restaurant where I know they have fruit shakes. I was craving for something cold. I got there but unfortunately no mango shake or avocado available. They only have strawberry which I don't like. I just asked for a glass of water and that made me feel better.
I ordered apple pie and lasagna to go before heading home.
