While we were never keen on the particular house we were in, we always did love that neighborhood, and I've missed it quite a bit over the past years, especially the walk around the lake. It's roughly an hour walk, give or take one's ambling speed, through wooded hills and quiet neighborhoods, and on a nice day it's just about as good as northern Virginia gets.
It's also a great walk for talking through stuff; mammallamadevil and I walked it a few times when we had weighty things to discuss, and of course Laurie and I had many long walk-and-talks there. Today the conversation turned to childhood memories and comparing notes of where and when the President's Physical Fitness Program came along and ruined recess during our respective school careers.
I really enjoyed it. Hopefully we can get out and do more walks like it soon. :)
