Took a walk

Walked across the Sundial Bridge to the Sacramento River. the other day. 
The oaks are pollinating. Don\’t stare. 
Took a walk through the trails – Young people out on their bikes and those electric scooters, you rent.   I was almost hit by one. That could have really been bad but it was a young boy – he didn\’t mean it. I just need to be more careful in situations like that. It would have injured anyone, not just me. 
These scooters are everywhere – they even have them in my subdivision just hanging out on the corner. 
No one wears a helmet. They just pop on them and go. I haven\’t tried one yet. The husband and I keep meaning to rent a couple (from an app on your phone) and drive them around a parking lot just to get the feel before taking it to the street.  
We no longer have a bus service near us. They discontinued it. So seniors are having to either walk and where I am at, there are no sidewalks outside our subdivision – and to get to the shopping area, you have to cross a very skinny bridge with no sidewalk. Basically, you look behind you and run across. 
I do miss not being able to walk to the store. I mean I can, but it\’s dangerous on those country roads. I\’ve dodged a few vehicles before. My luck will eventually run out. Just yesterday I heard of a man riding a gasoline-powered bicycle was hit by a woman texting on her cell phone. He was killed. 
Maybe these people who text and drive, or drive too fast need to get out away – and relax and take in the natural beauty and stop being in such a dangerous rush. 
They ruin it for many who just want to take life a bit slower.

    Oooh! That bridge is so cool! Looks like you've had some beautiful walks. Glad you escaped injury from that scooter. We don't have many of them in our area.

    The young people get reckless when they ride/drive them.
