Exercise for the Reeds

Since we have a car on this mission, we don’t get the walking in that we did in Ukraine.  So we try to get over to a beautiful park a few kilometers from our apartment when we have the time.  We walk about 4 or 5 miles around this massive park, which covers hundreds of acres of land.  It’s very refreshing and keeps these old bodies active and moving!  The day after Easter we were at the park in all the snow (which we put on the blog earlier), but now the park is such a contrast to that snowy day.  It’s just another taste of beautiful Poland we have grown to love.

This was our walking park the day after Easter.  This much snow at that time of year is most unusual for Poland.

The park nowadays is a beautiful spread of green everywhere we look.  There is a series of lakes for people to walk around, have picnics, play sports, playgrounds for children, and fishing (we have yet to see anyone pull a fish out of the lake - they must be very patient fishermen!).

At one part of the lake this group of swans gathers, and we hope they stay all summer.  They are such beautiful birds to observe.

    I enjoy walking for exercise too. I used to go on 5-6 mile walks around town before my uncomfortable MS symptoms appeared. Now I just walk around the track across the street from our house–usually about 1-2 miles. Those last two pictures are beautiful. I’m happy to see that all that snow melted! :)
