Walk to Work

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.

Highlights:

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.
