Awake early waiting for day break so I can get up and walk around the island near my house. I am fortunate to live on a Marina in a fairly secluded suburb close to the City and we have a 25 hectare island which has been created out of I think an old rubbish site. Lots of bird life both on and off the water. I wish people would learn not to feed the marine birds bread as it pollutes the water and is not a natural food source for them.
Cold, brisk morning with fog and mist over the river. Walking is a simple exercise that anyone can do irrespective of their fitness level, just start small by putting one foot in front of the other and build up distance day by day. Always good to start the day, saying hello to fellow walkers, especially so if you live alone. I stopped and spoke to a former neighbour who has recently moved a few streets away. It doesn’t take long to start to warm up especially if you walk a little faster, see a couple of brave souls padding kayaks on the river. I decided to do a longer walk by walking around the Marina and along the path that runs parallel to Great Eastern Hwy because I wanted to walk up the steep hill.
After arriving home I needed to go into my business and was going to ride my bike the few kilometres however tyres were flat and as my pump wasn’t working (perhaps I don’t understand how to work it) so wheeled my bike to the bike shop and they pumped them up. Went into work for about an hour and rode home. Nice morning enjoying the sunshine. Love these fine winter days.
