Winter Walk at My Office Park - Actifit Report: February 4 2020

in actifit •  2 months ago 

Hooray — the days are getting longer! I went out for a walk from the office after 5 pm and was able to do a complete walk in daylight! But it was very cold, and I had a little adventure that kept me out longer than I planned (which I will share in this post), and I had no feeling in my toes by the time I returned to my office.

The office park is really quite pretty. This is the courtyard where I walk sometimes. It is really gorgeous in the spring when the fountains are running and there are flowers everywhere. But it has a certain stoic beauty when it’s frozen as well.

I had to be careful because there were a lot of icy patches on the path!

I wanted to capture the beauty of the reflections — the sky reflected in the building windows and shimmering on the pond ice.

I walked three times around the ponds, and by then daylight was fading and I was very cold so I decided to go in.

And that’s when I had my adventure. I walked all the way back around to the other side of the buildings where the entrance to my office is located, which is basically like traveling around a large city block, and I realized I was missing something.

I had put my credit card in my pocket before I left because if it was nice I thought I might walk along the bike trail which leads to a store I like. But it was too cold for that so I chose the courtyard. Somehow when I reached into my pocket for my phone I must have accidentally pulled out the credit card and dropped it.

So I had to take a trip back around the entire building to find it. I was so cold that I half considered abandoning it and calling the credit card company to cancel and replace it! But I walked back around.

And there it was!

It was really getting dark by this time, but I was glad I had a reason to go back. Some trees decorated with lights came on and it was very pretty.

Thanks for visiting!

Thank goodness you found your credit card!
Those are beautiful evening pictures with the lights in the trees! I bet you were cold but happy after capturing those shots!
thanks for sharing!

Yes I was especially happy to get back inside and warm my feet! Thank you for your kind comment, @porters!

Lovely late afternoon photography, photo that really looks like a miniature lighthouse leading you back in very last picture.


Thank you, @joanstewart! And thanks for the tip! I do love that little light too. 😁

I'm glad you found your credit card. It is a pain in the neck when you have to cancel them.

Thank you! Yes, it totally is. I can’t believe I was contemplating abandoning it!

It looks almost good enough for hockey or just skating.

It's interesting how sometimes you can reconstruct the exact place where something might have dropped out of your pocket. It happens to me.


So glad you found your credit card! That's a scary feeling when you go to get it and realize it's not where it's supposed to be! Fantastic job with the 13379 @actfit steps. Beautiful pictures too. Have a wonderful night!
