Walked hard today, first day back from vacation. Walked around our closed up pool several times, watching where I was going because there was a lot of acorn debris from the trees around the pool!

This was a walk in the downtown area of Vineyard Haven. Walked to a supermarket and got my lunch. Picked up a greeting card. My final stop was the book store "Bunch of Grapes", didn't buy anything there. By then it had started to rain, so it was time to go home.

Walked by the shore in Oak Bluffs. Walked along the harbor there too. Then sat on a bench by the ocean for awhile. So peaceful!

These Stone Walls

Last April I did a Google search for images of Pope Francis. The image below was included in the results. It led me to a very special blog, These Stone Walls. Fr. Gordon MacRae writes the blog; please pray for him, for he is a falsely accused priest. He has spent 19 years in a New Hampshire prison for crimes that did not happen.

My own prayer:
Mary, Untier of knots, please pray for Father Gordon MacRae that justice and mercy be done in his case!

It was a wonderful walk by the shore on Martha's Vineyard today. Saw people walking their dogs on the beach. The island has a fishing derby this time of year, I saw a man fishing.

This afternoon I went out to our pool. I walked around it several times. First I walked around it in the wrong direction ("always turning right") for 15 minutes and then in the right direction ("always turning left') for another 15 minutes.

I got this idea from Caleb M's blog post:

I dropped off a Sister at a doctor's appointment. Rather than sit in the stale air of a waiting room, I went for a walk in the fresh air and sunshine. It was a beautiful day for a walk. Everything is in bloom!

For my walk today, I went outdoors. The weather is nice and sunny. I enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine!

Walking outdoors sure beats walking on the treadmill!

For my walk, two remembrances today:
.
1) Pope Francis on his name day
.
2) George Sheehan
Yesterday I discovered this quote by George Sheehan (1918-1993):
.
"It's very hard in the beginning to understand that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn that the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants you to quit."
.
Loved this quote!
