My Daily Westlake Village Walk

Westlake Lake at Sunrise in May

Visiting my parents in Westlake Village, California is a pleasure. They settled here in the 1980s, and while I’ve never lived here it’s a great place to visit.

This week I’m here to help take care of my mother after knee replacement surgery. She is on my special “Healing Diet” which made a difference for her 5 years ago after hip replacement surgery. So we’re doing it again!

While I’m visiting, every morning I walk the approximately 4 miles around Westlake Lake.

It’s a beautiful way to start each day… and my pedometer reads 9,000 steps!

I’m not completely alone during my walks. Everyone nods with a polite, “Good Morning!”

Lots of cute doggies to admire and pet, too…

    It is so refreshing to visit your parents and hear stories about them from their pals. The westlake village is beautiful indeed. It is so relaxing, having nothing much to do at such places but to look in blank, listen to silence, tasting the breath etc.

    • Thank you, Narayan, dear! I hope you are getting a chance to “look in the blank, listen to silence, taste the breath,” and that your health is still good.
