I have not been running or walking since mid-December when I got sick with the flu. I decided to take January 1st to re-start with a walk. I took my phone with me, so I could make a Pedestrian Post with Pictures.
It was warm for January, upper 30s, lower 40s (my thermostat is not strictly accurate). It had been raining. I had not gone very far when I saw it was still sprinkling. I could not worry about that; I was out, I was going to continue. I turned down German Street towards Main. I slipped a little on some ice on the sidewalk, but there were plenty of bare patches. I tried to stick with those.
I passed the Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast and took a picture, so I could plug a local business. Traffic was quiet enough that I could easily cross German at Main Street. I wanted to walk down the path over what used to be a hydraulic canal.
I also took pictures of the plaques with information on the history. Full disclosure: I have never read them but only taken a glance while passing.
I crossed German in the middle of the block to continue down the path.
After leaving the path, I headed toward my beloved Herkimer Historic Four Corners.
I decided to try to make it a long walk, since I am getting back into things after a break. I ended up walking up and down my driveway for about 40 seconds in order to make it a full 20 minutes. I was quite pleased with my walk. I hope to take another one tomorrow.
