Day 19 – Saturday, October 17, 2015

If you’ve followed this journey at all, you might have noticed that Roxy has accompanied me on my walks.  All of them…except one.

She wasn’t with me on Day 9 – Sunday, June 21.  On that day (rather evening) Steve and I went for a walk after his Father’s Day dinner.  Roxy wasn’t with us.  I wanted her to share in my accomplishment so that she could tell all of her doggie friends “I walked every block in Bay Ridge”.  To give her that same sense of satisfaction, I re-created the walk.

Meet Damon:

Damons feet

the rest of him was unavailable for a photo.  And you’ll have to trust me when I say “he was smiling”.  Damon was in charge of the map.  You see, I saved the map from that walk, as I knew I wanted to recreate it.  I carefully highlighted the streets we needed to re-do, and left him in charge of crossing them off as we walked.  Check out this “kid’s” work:

Redo map

with those skills, he should get into every college.

We concentrated on the areas between 80 & 86 Streets, between 3rd and 4th Aves.  The streets are residential, the avenues are commercial.  And the restaurants!  Yum!  I enjoyed this walk as much as I did the first time – for the company and to see the neighborhood on a weekend:  a time when I’m usually not here.

And now Roxy can also say “I’ve walked every block in Bay Ridge.”  I’m so proud of her.

But we’re not done yet, folks.  Stay tuned… 🙂
