Day 2 of our hike started off much more cautiously. We had learned not to be too cocky and decided to go south from the same trail head we had started from the previous day which meant that the first 5 or 6 km would be along the road into the town of Lion’s Head, a nice gentle walk, that would protect my ankle.
A very different experience- we stopped along the way to talk to some of the locals about cottage property values; lots of places for sale and mused about the possibilities.
It was actually on this day that we decided to blog about our experiences and muse about the possibilities of where this blog might take us… could we end up publishing a book about our experiences? Maybe it would be interesting enough to be a movie… 2 middle aged women, walking and talking about life??? What actresses would we pick to play us? The possibilities are endless; the ideas come and go like an endless stream of consciousness. I had never really thought about blogging but now it seemed like a great idea and today I have been sitting in front of my computer for the better part of the day. I have to admit; I’m hooked!
It’s been 10 days now since our last hike and I’m ready to start planning our next hike. I don’t want to lose the momentum. 885 km in 5 years= 177 km per year or to break it down further, about 25 km per month x 7 months per year (we don’t plan to hike in winter). That’s not too onerous.
