Run at The Lake...with Dust Bunnies!



Lovelies, I'm here to tell you, that I'm am in agony! Yesterday while off for the day, I was going to go back to the Raven Resort to catch some rays, but it was overcast, as I thought I would go up to the lake early and do my walk/run. Peace Valley Lake is a huge man made lake just minutes from the Casa du Borghese. It's eight miles the whole way around, and three days a week I go up there when the season starts and start walking around the lake. Eventually I end up walking and running my way around and by late summer I can jog the whole thing. Well, yesterday, I went up and not even 6 minutes in, don't you know a major downpour hit!!!! But it was fun running in the rain, and kept me cool, even though I was soaked! Today I was in major pain, as every step I took hurt like hell. I think I ran a little further than I usually do, so I took it easy today! But the lake is quite beautiful to see, don't ya think? And their is a ton of wildlife to see. They even have a nature center and a bird habitat.

Arrived and getting started.


A tyical view of the nice wide path, very wooded!


Hard to believe all this is only 18 miles outside the city, isn't it?






My break at the halfway point, enjoying the rain drenching me.


The little walkway to the dock.


One of the many cranes that can be found at the lake.


I do believe David Dust had spies there to check up on the Mistress! Had to post these for him.



Tonight after work, yes, I worked, I came home, stripped and laid flat on my back. I know, what else is new, but boy did it feel good to get off my feet! Tootles!

  14. So lucky to live so close to the lake, we would love it. It looks like you had a wonderful day. You could have entered a wet tee shirt contest huh?

  15. Beautiful lake! Love all the nature and the quite. Living in Philly it's hard often to block out all the city noise, one gets over it in time. And I was going to say something about the wet clothes, but I'll leave that alone!
