Last weekend we were in Lynchburg, VA hiking Liberty University Mountain, and this weekend we found ourselves in Sanibel Island, Florida for our annual vacation. Vacation is so much more enjoyable when one is fit.
On a couple of the days, we took the first part of the day to run the beach from our resort to the end of the island and the Sanibel lighthouse. It's an even 2-miles one-way and makes for a challenging 4-mile round trip.
On a few of the days, we walked 6-miles (Bailey's Market and back).
It's always a pleasure when Dad joins us. The beautiful sunrise is a nice distraction from the difficulty of running on the beach sand.
Jogging in Florida can be hazardous to your health. This "little" (8-foot) guy was right next to the walking path that we were on. Thankfully Debra made notice of him (and increased her pace to 5mm) as I would have been knee deep in gator-mouth before I was aware.
Between beach and pool, morning jogs and evening strolls, our fitness facilitated the rest we needed from this vacation. Ironic, huh?
