New Scenery Is Invigorating!

Instead of the gym this morning, hubbie and I drove over to Coronado and parked at Fiddlers Cove, then walked south for 2 miles on the Silver Strand, before turning around.  It was a beautiful sunny windy morning with the spectacular pacific ocean on our right and the glorious San Diego bay on our

For those of you who do not know the Silver Strand, it is a a narrow piece of land that connects Coronado "island" (really an isthmus) to the southern most part of San Diego county (right next to Mexico), called Imperial Beach.  When it was developed/paved, some brilliant forward thinking person created a nice wide path completely out of the traffic for pedestrians/bikes/roller bladers.  It is so wonderful to be able to exercise surrounded by such beauty, fresh air and unending views. 

The view of Point Loma to the west and north was amazing because it was crystal clear and you could see both lighthouses, the one at the bottom of the point and the old preserved one at the top of the point.  STUNNING!!!

We walked 4.2 miles in an hour, a respectable time to be sure.  I am sure we accomplished our goal of healthy cardiovascular exercise.  I know it was healthier to be out in the fresh air instead of the gym.  I feel invigorated and motivated to return again soon for a repeat, maybe going a lot further on a bike ride next time.

Why not grab your Valentine and find some new scenery and breathe in the fresh air and new perspective!

Desire to breathe deeply.  Dedication to seek out inspiring new scenery.  Discipline to go at least an hour.
