I’ve also been dog sitting for a friend this weekend, and I’ve been making sure this young black lab stays active, too. We’ve been on two walks a day, which I think may be more walking than he’s done all summer combined. It certainly adds to my mileage!
And finally, I did the Grand Crossings River Walk this morning in downtown Grand Rapids. This was sort of a local alternative to the Mackinaw Bridge Walk covering 5 miles and 8 crossings of the Grand River. The rain held off throughout the event, and it was a great time! I really like downtown GR, and the river is one of the prettiest stretches to see it from. I love all the bridges and the landmark buildings along the way.
