Look up once in a while.......

It began to rain sometime after midnight Saturday, and continued on and off until mid morning Sunday before the sun began to peek through the clouds once again.  Once we were sure the rain was done for the day we decided to take another walk.

We do this 'out and back' walk along Mission Inn Avenue once, or twice a week and typically I am looking down.....nothing much worse than tripping on a crack in the sidewalk and doing a face plant......but there a lot that will be missed if you don't look up once in a while......the following pictures were all taken in just .5 miles of the first 1.5 miles of our walk........










......there is a lot of interesting architecture in downtown Riverside, and if you are looking down all the time you will miss a lot......and it's not just the architecture that will catch your attention......there is some whimsical stuff as well......







.....these pictures are just a sample of what you can see along Mission Inn Avenue in downtown Riverside.....I am normally a 'died in the wool' short pants guy, but for the first time in a long time I wore long pants on this walk as it was relatively cool and breezy.
  
Our 3 mile 'out and back' walk along Mission Inn Avenue

Of course, a walk in cool, breezy weather must include some warm refreshments, so we stopped off at 'The Coffee Bean' on our way home for a cup of coffee.......


......we were home by 1300.  The rest of the day I watched some golf, and read.

Thanks for stopping by!
