Today, for the first time in almost five years I did something. I could not, even though I still felt ick, spend another day in the house, in bed. I had to get outside. So, I bundled up, drove into town (figured best to be near the hospital and other people) and took a walk around the City of Athens, Uptown. I have done this before, but the big deal was, I walked all over the University. I've never done that before.
I felt so good (and took some pain medication and ate my first REAL MEAL!!!!) so I went on another very short walk to check out a new short section of the bike path. THEN I went out to Strouds Run State Park to shoot a few photos at the beach and picnic areas. The result: 80 (or so) photos. I will be posting them in a series of 4 blogs. I love these pictures and hope you do to.
The photos of Uptown Athens are of the City buildings, churches, etc; then throughout the University. This first set I am posting today is just Uptown. Enjoy!
