10,000 Steps

In the midst of the ongoing COVID-lockdown, I’m managing to keep myself reasonably fit by walking. Though there are some days I don’t quite reach the magic number of 10,000 steps, quite often I do.

I try to stop along the way and take some photographs, and this weekend, in particular, I’ve shot some video.

There’s yesterday’s video, a walk to the Lismore Showground, Farmer’s Market and Saleyard. And today, there’s a video along the riverbank in Lismore.

As I’ve stated previously, Lismore has a “difficult” relationship with the river, due to regular flooding in the city. But it’s still quite lovely, and today there were quite a few people out and about, walking along the riverbank, and there were even some people in boats.

Today I met Jamie, a kayaker who sums it up well. He said there are other “prettier places” to go kayaking, like nearby Brunswick Heads or Evans Head, but that Lismore’s river is still pretty special. “I love it, it puts a whole new perspective on my town”, he told me.

And here’s a post-script from Monday.

  1. Thanks for the tour James.
    Keep stepping out. You must have a decent set of calf muscles by now.
    I did 12,700 steps today or 10.11km according to the app on my phone, although I’m not sure how accurate it is. I’ve been doing the same walk around Geelong’s waterfront nearly every day of the pandemic.
    Love the art work on the levy bank.
    Keep well.

    1. Thankyou Rod. I hope it’s going well with you also. I have a good long-term friend who lives in Geelong, and I can tell she’s found these lockdowns difficult too, but also kinda resigned to it all.
