What made me happy this week - 17/52


It is here, although we are experiencing some very mild weather.  I love Autumn and Spring the most out of the Seasons that we have.  So much Autumnal colour is around us in abundance too.  

Today  TOF and I went for a walk along one of the many pathways that are next to our Might Waikato River which runs smack bang in the middle of Hamilton.

Part of TOFs road to recovery is walking daily.  Now that he is able to walk  more than a few power poles down the road I have started to join him. We walked around part of Lake Rotoroa in town the other day.  I tell him to go as far as he is comfortable and then we rest and return to our starting point.

The River Cruiser boat went past and I love getting glimpses of my favourite old bridge, the Fairfield Bridge.

Even tho you are walking in the city it is so peaceful riverside.  Lots of native trees and birds, ducks on the river, and the odd bike bell ringing to alert you to cyclists coming along the shared pathway.  Someone had carved a face into the old tree trunk, some residents have stairs that lead up to their properties, and we just got to enjoy it all. 

Fairfield Bridge through the trees.

Autumn Colour!
Makes me happy.

Hi Sue, oh wow have they painted that lovely old bridge, I remember it being darker, use to go over that every day back when I was flatting with friends, before I moved to AUS. Good for TOF out and about getting better. I love autumn to, just as much as Winter.

So good to know you are both out there, walking as far as you can, slowly does it. Well done TOF, you are a winner in this race. Hope you don't get the torrential rain that hit Rotorua, our daughter said the roads are so dangerous, lots are closed, they need to detour from Lynmore into the city.

You sure do have some stunning scenery right around you Sue. I love autumn & spring the very best too!

That is a beautiful place to be walking Sue, good to see TOF is able to walk a bit further now. I remember that bridge..was a sign that after driving from Tauranga, Hamilton was not far away. Autumn and spring are my favourite times of the year too.

A lovely river walk in a beautiful SAFE green city park! This is literally walking in a dream for we dwellers in most American urban areas. Delighted to see TOF out and about enjoying it all. (Yes, we know he is smiling on the inside.)

Autumn walks in a beautiful place would keep me outdoors as well. Glad to see TOF being out and about and getting stronger each time.
