Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
My list of #50things to do this year, included taking a picture at the Million Plus Recyclers frame at Zoo Lake that I drive past often.
@SirNoid and I decided that #wecandohardthings and walked to #zoolake (3.5km from our front door to that frame) which included hearing a #lion roar as we passed the Joburg Zoo which was wild!
We walked around the Lake before heading back.
🌿 I’ve realised that to really get to know your surroundings, you should walk it. You meet with intricate details and interesting people.
🌿 The pavements are much like our roads. You gotta check where you going. There could be an unfinished, uncovered municiple dugged hole, or a Blue Crane that may surprise you.
🌿 There is a huge public braai area at Zoo Lake which I had never seen before! It looked so festive.
🌿 Where Moyo’s use to be is a shell of a structure that will sadden you. A victim of the great pause that was #2020 I think.
🌿 TIFOSI SPORTS for the win! Most comfortable running (walking) shoes. Very comfortable and so light.
🌿 We met an informal photography group of young people. Loved their excitement and suggested they also visit The Wilds.
🌿 People dress up to visit the outdoors. Children love balls and being outside. Balloon arches are all the rage. Must remember that for my birthday.
🌿 Even for walking, a proper #sportsbra makes a massive difference.
🌿 I silently thanked the many feet that walked the pathway before me so I didn’t have to walk in the longer grass. I was aware that to many this walk was not a joy, but a daily chore.
