Walking Club Tally ~ Week 3

This week was a much more successful week for me in the walking numbers. I walked close to an hour every day but Friday.  Today Dear and I walked at the beach for close to 2 hours! My average this week was 11,508 steps a day. I’m so much happier with these results and I hope that when I weigh in on Monday for the Brown Plate Special I’ll have some lower numbers on the scale, too. Before our walk we had some blintzes that my mom brought over last weekend. I filled them with a ricotta mixture.

The Blintzes were baked with butter and half & half. After they were out of the oven we put a dollop of sour cream on top and some pure maple syrup. This was at 6:00 am so I have a whole day to burn off these calories. 🙂 I think Lovella will be pleased. Good thing we’re headed for a good long walk…


We decided to walk along the railroad tracks at Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura. It was cold and crisp this morning.


The Channel Islands were in clear view today.



This is at the North entrance to Emma Wood and Lana G! just called me so I’m waving to her while I talk to her in Washington. I’m all layered up cuz it was cold this morning people.  Well cold for California, it was shorts weather for you hardy folk in the North!


On our way back to the car I took this shot of the river and the snow capped mountains in the distance. This river empties into the ocean at the South end of Emma Wood. Hope you are all having some good times walking…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. Ellen, I’m so impressed with your walking results. You have such a beautiful area to walk in. Your pictures are just gorgeous. Oh the beach .. . how delightful. Even if you did have to put on a jacket. . .it lookes like a light one.

    All the best with that weigh in. Oh and the blintzes look as though they were worth every calorie.

    Hi Lovella, thanks for inspiring the walking…

  2. I’ve had the blintzes that Jim B’s mom made. Yum! I remember those were swimming in butter! I’m sure these weren’t? Beautiful photos, and really cute photo of you talking with Lana.

    Happy weekend.

    Kathy, Yes they usually swim in butter, I cut way back on it 🙂 Blessings…

  3. Beautiful place to walk! That scenery is motivating. My mouth is watering now for blintzes.

    Susanne, Like I told Lana, I have a few blintzes left so come on by… 🙂

  5. Whenever I come lurking on your blog (I found you through Lovella’s) I am always impressed with the pictures you post. Wow! God’s creation is varied and gorgeous. Thanks for letting us enjoy your corners of creation with you.

    Marni, I’m happy we can praise the God of creation together!

  6. Beautiful photos! The Professor and I will have to check out Emma Wood. How long is the walk? Thornhill Broome wasn’t much over 1 mile each way and most of that was on blacktop.

    You’ll have to try out the Satwiwa/Sycamore Canyon hikes…
