Walking Bridge: Poughkeepsie, NY

Hey πŸ‘‹πŸΎ

Haven’t really been having the best couple of weeks (highs and lows). This past Sunday, I was prepared to stay in my bed, but the weather was very nice, so I decided not to waste it clear my mind a bit.

When my mind is in a fog, whether or not I like to admit it, going outside usually helps. The beaming sun, warm temperature, and sleepy breeze was very inviting.

I don’t have a car, so my ability to do too much exploring can be a bit limited. However, there are some very scenic spots close by that allow for an escape without really escaping ✌🏾️

An oldie but goodie is the river right by my school (below). It’s a campus favourite, and when the weather allows for it you’ll often find troves of students making their way down to take in the picturesque scenery.

 
My absolute favourite walk however is the Walking Bridge. It’s about a 10 minute walk from my campus, and it’s amazing. I was lucky enough to have the company of my friend Julia on this fine day to take this walk with me.

I love the walking bridge because not only is the view spectacular (once you’re over the water at least πŸ˜‚), but it’s great exercise as well! I couldn’t say how long the actual distance is if you walk it all the way both ways, but time-wise it takes me (and company if I have) about two hours to cross and come back. My legs are always on fire when I get back home!
   
   

Well, that was just a quick recap! Hopefully you like the pictures (which are mine…don’t use them without permission ☺️).

What are some activities you all partake in when you’re in a funk? Do you enjoy walking?

Until next time,

Court
