My friend T recently lost his job and so has plenty of time to go on long walks with me. Unfortunately, with all the stress, he has taken up smoking again, so with all the time in the world, he still prefers short walks.
Today we went to find the shortest walk in “Seattle Stairway Walks” book: the Eagle Landing Stairs in Burien. You park at the top of a bluff overlooking the Sound, walk just a bit on a trail, then come to a set of stairs that zig-zag down to the beach. Short and steep, we were both panting for breath on the return trip and definitely a bit moist with sweat, but it’s easy to to recover when it’s such a short walk.
There’s not much else to add to today’s trip report. I recommend eating some Mexican food while you’re down in Burien or White Center. Go thrift store shopping. You’ll have plenty of time to do other things after you’ve done this walk.
I’m getting my exercise this winter following the walks in “Seattle Stairway Walks”. You can get your copy here.
