Things to Do – Spring Has Come

Do you need some things to do this gorgeous spring? Not that you haven’t been already.

Senior Walkabouters

I’ve been walking with this group along Santa Rosa Creek for about a year. Recently, I’ve been exploring other places with them. They go so many places and almost every day. There are weekly walks and solos – as one woman is leading walks on different sections of the Bay Trail. Please visit their site, sign up and find the walk that’s just right for you. (There are other Meetup groups in the area for more strenuous hikes or other types of activities.)
