It's a holiday weekend - time for a good hike

Trail to Montara Mountain, Pacifica

Yesterday, the first day of this 3-day weekend, included time for a great afternoon hike in Pacifica, a coastal town just south of San Francisco.

We enjoyed plenty of solitude, views galore, and varied terrain and vegetation. As my FitBit recorded, we also had lots of elevation gain.

Happy Independence Day everyone!

Wishing you all good times shared with those near and dear to you.

What a lovely photo Lottie - and it looks like it was a great day to shake off stress and enjoy the beauty of nature!

Wow.. My wife and I have hiked all over Chicago since Thursday afternoon!  great shots just a little different than yours!

Posted by Joe Jackson, Clintonville and Central Ohio Real Estate Expert (Keller Williams Capital Partners Realty) over 1 year ago

Hi Maria Sapio  - I find a good, local hike to be a great way to recharge and de-stress. 

I'd like to visit Chicago, Joe Jackson - did you have humidity to contend with as you and your wife hike around town?

That looks so nice and inviting and I would love to hike there too!

Hi Kristin Johnston, Waukesha County Realtor 414-254-6647 - we have wonderful hiking in and around San Francisco; a lot of watershed and parklands. Happy 4th!

Wow you burned a whole days calories with the hike.  I love to walk but I wouldn't be able to do 7 miles and it would have to be flat terrain. Happy hiking and Happy 4th.

Lottie,  Lovely photo ... no doubt the hike was energizing on so many levels. Enjoy the balance of the weekend.

Hi Sharon Lee - I used to have a hiking friend who often wore a T-shirt that read, "I hike to eat"  A cold beer and tortillas tasted great after our hike!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - we're fortunate to have many fabulous areas in and close to San Francisco in which to hike. There's a hike for every season and type of day.

Thanks, Kathleen Daniels - I'm doing very little real estate this weekend, wrapping up my quarterly review and computer work is it. And that gives my time to hike. This morning a San Carlos friend came up to explore all the nooks and crannies on Russian Hill, with lunch in North Beach and a walk back here via Chinatown. I hope you're taking time for yourself this weekend.

No real humidity in Chicago ThisWeek ,

Posted by Joe jackson over 1 year ago

That must be unusual for the summertime. My memories from visiting relatives in Missouri is that the midwest is quite humid, at least to this Californian. Glad you had a great visit, Joe Jackson

I'm glad you were able to enjoy the great outdoors. There's no hiking for us during the day this time of year unless you want a heat stroke!

Our weather is one of the beauties of living here, Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert - the fog swirls in and out, our natural air conditioner. Happy 4th!

Hello Lou Ludwig - we hadn't done this particular hike for quite some time - it was great.

We had a wonderful holiday weekend, Roy Kelley - something fun each day, sprinkled with a bit of work. I hope you and Dolores enjoyed your days.

Lottie, what a beautiful photo!  Wish I'd been on this walk with you!

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 1 year ago

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - I get a kick out of my Fitbit -- especially equating elevation gain to number of floors climbed. 

Patricia Kennedy - we have super hiking in and around the San Francisco bay. You would have liked this one.

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Serving San Mateo County and San Francisco (Today | Sotheby's International Realty) over 1 year ago

Lottie, just on a side note Diane has one of those clicker that monitors every step and she keeps telling me I did 12,000 steps... today and the list goes on and on, clearly both of you are very competitive in your own ways, Endre

Posted by Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices) over 1 year ago

LOL!! What good Realtor isn't at least a bit competitive, Endre Barath, Jr. ?? We want to be the best we can possibly be, right? Diane rocks -- 12,000 steps is hard to accomplish in a regular day. 

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Serving San Mateo County and San Francisco (Today | Sotheby's International Realty) over 1 year ago

Good Morning Lottie - we had a great 4th although not as healthy as yours.  I need to do more of what you are doing!

I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend and holiday, Grant Schneider. I've got the exercise thing down, just need to work on the food thing!
