Summer walking - one month to departure

We are enjoying a fabulous summer here - perfect for walking, as long as it is done in the morning to avoid the heat! We have been quite relaxed with our training so far, but now that it's only a month away, we are feeling the pressure to step up (no pun intended) our distance and add more hill training as well. Today we did our favorite walk on Beach Drive along the ocean, and near the end of it we climbed up to Walbran Park for some great views. Here are a couple of photos from today......

Rest stop!
