By Terry Sheldon | May 24, 2019

Six of us carpooled into Jacksonville, parking in the lot next to the library. We enjoyed a leisurely walk up to the cemetery, which some of us had never seen. The rest of the walk was around the downtown area, stopping at the Mustard Seed for brunch, then shopping along the way back. We met… Read More.

We continued up to RT Jones, exploring little… Read More.

Walkabout rides (or walks?) again! Yesterday, Friday March 29 at 9:00 a.m., was our first just-under-3-mile walk, focusing primarily on the historical parts of Eagle Point.

By Terry Sheldon | February 23, 2017

Our startup walk of 2017 met at Bob Moore Park in downtown EP. We moseyed along through the covered bridge, then down Shasta. We found a park, then another area that apparently once had a YMCA. From there, we went uphill, towards where the water tower is, though we didn't go that far. With two… Read More.

May 2016 Walkabout in the Ponderosa neighborhood

Sensational Sweets was closed, near where we parked, so we didn’t stop in for a post-walk coffee and… Read More.
