Just to put it out there, this month on Friday, August 23, we’ll be walking at Lithia Park in Ashland. Meet at the Walmart parking lot at 8:00 a.m. to carpool to Ashland. Breakfast/brunch afterward at a restaurant to be decided on. RSVPs requested, thank you!
Due to the heat of the summer, Sharyn and I have decided to change the meeting time to 8:00 a.m. for the next few Walkabouts. It will still be held on the 4th Friday of the month, no other changes. We will probably change it back to 9:00 a.m. in October.
On this fourth Friday in July, six of us enjoyed a simple yet beautiful walk for about 2-1/2 miles, around the hills of Eagle Point, even learning a thing or two about the homes and roads that are planned to be built. We started from Sharyn’s house, walked around Arrowhead Drive and through Lucas Park,… Read More.
Eight of us went for a walk/sometimes hike at TouVelle Park, complete with a few dogs. We all enjoyed the warm but not too hot weather along the river, perfect for walking, chatting and exploring. Already looking forward to July!
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.
Even though we met a day early (this month only!), there were 11 of us to participate. We met at Crackin & Stackin and set out exploring Echoes of the Ponderosa, a beautiful Eagle Point neighborhood just filled with dogwood trees, most of which were blooming proudly! 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. We started at the covered bridge, moved up past the museum and flour mill, past historic residential houses, and then back through downtown, stopping at the Senior Center and… Read More.
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.
We will be meeting at 8:00 a.m. on August 25 at the Talon Grill, in the closest parking lot to Alta Vista. From there, we will carpool to Ashland. Our walk will be in beautiful Lithia Park, starting on the Plaza at the drinking fountain, and winding our way up through the park. Following the… Read More.
Sharyn and Terry will again center our walk in Eagle Point, and will be starting at Sharyn’s home, to explore the (short) wooded trail up behind her house and the new neighborhood that is blossoming above, with gorgeous views to see. Our walks are generally 3+ miles and non-strenuous. Breakfast or brunch at Barbwire Grill.… Read More.
