An afternoon walking at the beach

 First if you know me, you know I'm basically a lazy person and when it comes to exercise ..... well let's just say that's not me BUT yesterday afternoon my husband and I decided to take a walk on the boardwalk.  This boardwalk is at Silver Sands park and is about 2 miles one way and if you want to get back to your car you have to turn around and walk back so that is 4 miles....approximately.  Needless to say it was a hike for these two old geezers ....meaning me and hubby.  It took us a good hour and a half to walk it including walking down to the water and resting on bench.  Only problem with resting on bench is then I don't want to get up and move!  He had to pull me off that bench!  lol!  This boardwalk is over a swamp or as my husband says it is more politically correct to say wetlands on the right and the beach on the left so depending which side you decide to look you see "swamp" or kids playing in the water.  If you read my blog you know that back in June myself and a couple of friends walked across a boardwalk in Poughkeepsie, NY.(  That boardwalk was nice but completely different from this one in my town.  Both have their own features only good thing about Silver Sands is it is right here in town so a lot easier for me to walk it whenever I want.  I'll post more photos soon.


  1. Good for you and Alan! The Walkway over the Hudson is about 2-1/2 miles round trip--no wonder you were tired doing 4 miles.

  2. I could be exagerating just a little about how long it is...alan says it is about 1 1/2 miles one way. guess I should look into this and find out for sure.
