Naval Air Museum and Pensacola Lighthouse

Oldest and I took a little trip out to the Naval Air Museum and Pensacola Lighthouse yesterday.

We wandered around the two buildings looking at old and new planes, reading up on historical things as we went.

It was not crowded at all yesterday, which was nice.  We were able to walk around without bumping into other folks.  When we got a little hungry, we at lunch at the café in the museum.

If you are ever in this area and care to visit the museum, please do so. It is a fun, informative, worthwhile trip.  Free entry, by the way.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy.

Naval Air Museum and Hubby

Yesterday, hubby and I went to the Naval Air Museum. We walked around for about 2 hours looking at the exhibits with rest stops sprinkled in there for hubby. He has a few conditions that limit his mobility. He still walks, but it’s slower and requires frequent rests.

But we enjoyed our visit. For lunch we stopped in at Captain D’s for some seafood.

Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.

Take a Hike!

Yes, take a hike. You want to get fit and a gym is not your thing. Well there are other things you can do and you don’t literally have to take a “climb Mt. Everest” type hike to get there.

Here are some suggestions:

1. Visit a local museum. Walk around and enjoy the exhibits. Take pictures and document your trip.

2. Go to your local zoo. Feed the animals and enjoy the day.

3. Visit a public garden in your area. Take pictures of the flora and fauna. Enjoy being outside.

4. Go to a state or federal park. Walk the nature trails. Look for things you wouldn’t normally see in your neighborhood.

5. Go to yard sales, especially neighborhood yard sales. Park your car and walk from house to house.

6. If your area has a yearly Parade of Homes (a builder’s way of showing off), visit each house in the new neighborhood.

7. Visit your downtown area. You may see something you haven’t seen before.

8. Visit historic sites. Learn about your town or state.

These are just a few ideas to get you up and moving.

See you on the good side of healthy.

BTW, this photo was taken yesterday at Bellingrath Gardens in Alabama. It is a lovely place and takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours to walk thru. That does not include a tour of the house, which I recommend at least once if you visit there.

Montgomery Zoo

We took a day trip today to the Montgomery Zoo.  We had never been there so we were curious about it.  All I can say is, it was worth the trip.  Luscious greenery, waterfalls, shaded paths, a natural history museum and, of course, the wildlife.

Here are a few pics.  Enjoy.
