Toby and I are out to lunch at Starving Artists’ Bistro, one of our favorite spots. I manage to enjoy myself while still eating heart healthy. Nobody said I had to deprive myself.

Toby gets lunch too.

We had a nice hike on the Oakhurst River Parkway. It was not too strenuous, but, man, I was tired afterward. I think I have farther to go than I thought. I am determined to focus on how far I have come rather than how far I have to go.

As always, the drive to the Sierra foothills was gorgeous and fun.

The hike was nice, with a trail that followed the river in and around the lovely town of Oakhurst. It stayed more in town than I was looking for, but it was totally unpopulated so Toby could get off the leash for most of it. He stays with me and listens, so I like to let him explore.

I am using the AllTrails app to record these hikes so I can track my progress. It only gets better from here.
