Walking for health has been an important part of my life since I had back surgery six years ago. Going through that difficult time pre and post-surgery was made easier when we purchased a puppy, who we named Togo. She continues to be my buddy on walks. And during the rewrite/editing process, walks have become a part of my writing.
A few years ago, I saw something on the internet about photo-walks. The site was a hub for the people in the photo-walking group. They met with their sneakers and cameras at a public place, then walked together, stopping to take photos. I liked the idea and did it a few times. I think it's a great way to get exercise and if you're creative at all, or maybe just like to take pictures, it's a great way to motivate yourself to get out of the house.
Today, I went on a photo-walk around a neighborhood in Walla Walla, Washington.
