Not wanting to lose our last chance to enjoy the great outdoors before the 100 degree temps return starting tomorrow, we hopped up out of bed this morning and headed out to DeGarmo Park on the north end of town for an early morning walk around the soccer fields. The park is next door to the golf course the Canadian swings at, so he'd visited it before and thought it would be a nice change of scenery for us. Apparently it's fairly new, built within the last year, and even offers a dog park which was already busy with lots of furry friends playing chase together.
The park is just north of the Eaton Rd exit on Hwy 99 and the walking path on the east end of the park follows right along side of the freeway, only separated by what I hope is an incredibly strong chain link fence. The Canadian was tempted to stop and have breakfast with a Mormon looking group of folks who were using the big pavilion to cook up some seriously delicious smelling breakfast eats, but I was pretty sure Jesus would not be amused so we passed.
After finishing some morning chores we took a break and drove down the street to Spike's Bottle Shop which is right across the street from our gym. Last week there was a great article on them in the CN&R which talked about their extensive selection of craft and specialty beers so how could we not check it out?
