Walking, walking and more walking

my new walking shoes, Friday afternoon

Yesterday Neil and I walked from the bottom of Mt Kaukau to Makara, and then a little bit more. I was feeling pretty good until we walked down Trickle Falls, a gnarly mountain biking track, which did my knees in and put me right off ever mountain biking again. We started just before nine am, and with scorching lungs reached Mt Kaukau about half an hour later. The weather was perfect, and we kind of dawdled along the skyline walk, taking in views of Wellington and Ohariu Valley, it was so clear you could probably have made out houses in the Marlborough Sounds if you looked closely. Just enough wind to cool the sweaty spots. Rippling pink and gold grass. Little tiny people doing tiny things in their tiny houses in tiny suburbs. It were splendid. We made it to Makara Hill Road by midday, a good hour or so before we were meant to. My new walking shoes held up well, just a bit of rubbing on my heels which I expected. So to fill in a bit of time before Becc picked us up, we went up Makara Hill, looked at the amazing view, then stumbled down Trickle Falls. When I got home, I ate everything I could get my hands on, had a bath, and fell into a coma. Then the hot Korean guy won Survivor, and I made a bit more of Chris' diary. Charlie curled up on my bed and stuck his white rabbit-like feet into my face, and today, I biked to work in my skirt and jandals. Life is good.

And on the subject of life being good - Sue from Craft 2.0 has said the posse can have a stall at the market on March 17. We'll be selling donated crafty things and baked things. It's on at the Dowse museum in Lower Hutt, and will help us towards our $5000 fundraising goal. That's so great - I am so chuffed! Thanks to all those who have offered to send crafty things to sell, probably best if you send them up to me at work: Kimberley Rothwell, Features, The Dominion Post, P O Box 3740, Wellington. If you wanna sell some baked stuff we'll co-ordinate closer to the time. Any other suggestions for things we can sell will also be gratefully accepted. Merci bien.

Just be thankful you didn't go down the Vertigo trail. That would have finished your knees for sure.

well done on the walking! sheesh sounds tiring. I once walked 24 ks in one day but it was on city streets, not uphill trails. still, its amazing what the human body can do. Could I have done another 24 the next day?.... er, hmmmm. But you can!

Of course they're my feet. The Dompost carpet, the faded jeans, the op shop top... the cropped out bulgy tummy.
