Yesterday was Walk to Work Day. Although I did not actually register, I did participate and walked from Albion railway station to my office in Turbot Street. I donít know the actual distance but it took me 67 minutes of steady walking (some uphill sections) and my pedometer registered 7,600 steps.
I forgot to take my camera so I could share some of the things I discovered along the way.
The new mangroves sprouting through the mud in Breakfast Creek.
Colonial homes in inner city areas
Small gardens hidden behind picket fences
First glimpse of my high-rise destination from the top of Bowen Hills
Walking is a great way to discover things about your city that you will never see from a car. I will try to do it more often Ė maybe a different route.
