9.18 miles

What a hot walk! By the time we finished our 9+ miles, the "feels like" temperature was 106°.

We had only planned to do about eight miles. We stayed down Florida Street and went through Ashland Place. Then we came back to Dauphin and headed East.

At Ann Street we crossed Government Street and headed to Cream & Sugar. We were over 5 miles when we made it there. When we left, I hit the wrong button on my walking app and closed out the workout. That's why there are two pictures of our map. . . one is to C&S and one is home from there.

At about 7 miles I was really feeling the heat. I was so glad when Glen suggested we stop for a few minutes at Memorial Park. We sat under the shade of the blooming Magnolia trees and ate a snack. We joked about how it was going to feel when we got to "our hot spot," the last leg home where there is no shade at all. Fortunately, there was some cloud cover during that time.
