WOIB Walkin’ Fun!

by Connie DeLaVergne on July 22, 2013

We had perfect weather for the July 21st WOIB walk. The sun was out in full glory. I don’t know what the temperature was, but I know it was warm and beautiful and not too hot. If I were to guess, I’d say it was about 78° F which in my mind is just about […]


Walk On Kelsey Creek

That’s right, it’s the 3rd Sunday of the month again and it’s […]

The weather held providing a cool and mostly dry hike through the Kelsey Creek Farm woods, including the one-hundred-and-sixty-something steps. We decided […]

Behold The Beauty

by Connie DeLaVergne on March 8, 2013

“You never know what you’ll see when you go for a walk.” That’s what my friend JoAnn Taylor of the Walking Connection says, and she couldn’t be more accurate. Case in point is this amazing blue heron that swooshed by us on the WOIB walk last month. Its wing span was massive and it took […]

If Ever There Was A Day . . .

by Connie DeLaVergne on February 15, 2013

Today Was The Day For A Walk It was a stunner! The sun was out in full force and warmed our part of the planet enough to leave my hat and gloves at home. At one point I almost felt too warm. It was glorious. So much so I couldn’t resist stepping onto the trail. […]

Walks Abound On New Years Day

Perfect Winter Walking Weather Sunshine spilled into my bedroom through the gap in the curtain and I smiled, knowing a long walk would be my New Year Day activity of choice. Blue sky, a little frost and 42° in the sun made a lot of people feel the same way, apparently. In all my years […]
