Walk achievement unlocked

Sunday afternoon, I walked from the house to downtown. As in "walked the whole way." Up SE 70th to Foster, then zig-zagging from Foster and Powell to about 8th and Belmont, then up to the south sidewalk on the Morrison Bridge, because I wanted to see if it was open (a major bridge repair just started and most though not all of the bridge lanes are closed). Then to Pizza Schmizza for two slices of pizza, then to Pioneer Place to see Logan with friends.

I zig-zagged so I could take as close to a diagonal path as possible plus see some neighborhood blocks I hadn't been on before. I walked in order to save a TriMet ticket; the night before I'd used two when I'd hoped to use one. Yes, to save a bus fare I walked nearly six miles. Sometimes I do this.

I did bus home after the film.
