Pandemic Journal, Day 638

The rain stopped this morning, so we were able to take our usual Tuesday morning walk on the Los Gatos Creek Trail. It wasn’t as crowded as it often is, but we did run across a few other walkers, including one wearing a jacket with a LOT of patches – one of which was for the South Bay Striders Volksmarching Club.

We were members of the Striders back in the ‘80s and ‘90s, but things got busy and we dropped away, though we kept walking. I asked whether the club was still going, and it is; they have occasional one-day events and support quite a few Year Round walks. And they try to get people together on Wednesday afternoons to walk one of the local Year Round trails – we may join them on tomorrow’s walk.

You never know what you’ll find on a walk!
