I’m loving the cooler temperatures! With it brings out tons of walkers all over Vinings and Obie (my Portugese Water Dog) and I are among the crowd.
Vinings is only four square miles but it’s all sidewalks and you can pick your areas if you want flat or cardio challenges like the hill on Randall Farm, upper Cochise and N. Elizabeth!
I’ve walked them all and find the same people no matter what area of Vinings. I think we all explore the different streets and since I’ve been doing this for at least 10 years, there probably isn’t a single house that I haven’t looked at. Someone will say “I live on the xth house on Laramie” and I know which one it is.
I’m always surprised when I meet someone that I didn’t know lived in Vinings and they tell me which house is theirs and I remember five years ago when they did their last addition.
The other “destination” that many of us frequent with dogs is the Fire Station. If you didn’t know they have a bowl of water and biscuits for the dogs. My little boy likes to go there and watch them wash the fire engines.
I was disappointed as many were when we lost the Starbucks where we could go and get our coffee and sit outside with our dogs in the morning and read the paper. Well I guess now I’d read my iPad instead anyway!
