Now that we have warm weather, and it's MUCH earlier than usual - I have decided that Saturdays are NOT to be spent in the gym if at all possible.
My goal is to get out and soak up the sunshine. I am decidedly a SUNSHINE JUNKIE!
Today - I walked the "Zoo". I must say that the St. Louis Zoo is one of the best FREE zoo's in the country. Forest Park - which surrounds the Zoo area is very well done. The Boat House pond with fountains, History Museum statues, the Muny, etc.
I walked 85 minutes. My only complaint.. people are RUDE. I know they are there to stroll with their children and enjoy the walk - BUT don't take up the whole path and think that everyone behind you walks at YOUR pace. Only two people said 'excuse me' ...
But all the animals were out and about. The Elephants were quite a show!! The Penguins were even standing outside! I really enjoyed my walk..
To top it off, my legs weren't tired MY FEET were! lol
