Monday was walk2werq Monday and I had an ambitious walk to a kind of remote neighborhood called Merced Heights. I was headed to a little known Brooks Park. It was far away so I had to take the most direct way which was Corbett to Portola which doesn't have the nicest scenery, especially on a foggy morning. I did manage a nice walk down Santa Ana in Saint Francis Wood which is gorgeous:
This is the Ingleside Terraces gate at Paloma. I love how monumental it is. It must have looked even more like temple ruins when the neighborhood was built and there weren't any trees:
Merced Heights isn't gonna win a lot of architectural awards but Brooks Park is amazing. It's perched up on top of a hill with amazing views in every direction. The park is the remains of the Brooks family's garden and it lots stone walls and rambles about. So fabulous:
There's a much faster way to get to Brooks Park than I took and I plan on coming back soon. This is there view looking down Victoria towards Ocean:
I'd seen this tattoo place before,
But I hadn't seen this phenomenal pic in the window. Get outta my dreams and into my car!:
From there I went and got a donut and headed into work. I was really, really tired after the weekend and I should have taken the day off but I'm so close to the Lifefcycle I didn't want to skip a day in my training so I compensated by eating a LOT all day. I got enough energy off of that but it wasn't a pretty ride. I headed home for lunch and then went to my spin and then strength class after work. I was so beat when I got home I think I lasted 20 minutes before I went to bed.
