After spending the morning and part of the afternoon working on my blog, I was glad to get two posts published and head out for a walk. I really didn’t have anything in mind when I headed out. I just needed to walk.
As I turn left at the end of my street, I found myself admiring the old building that houses a french restaurant that has been recommended. I am having too much fun cooking to be eating out. I am not even buying street food right now.
On the main drag I turned away from town, since I had no pressing reason to go to Centro. This took me through a nice little park.
I have noticed a lot of classic Volkswagen beetles around town. I will have to do a post of nothing but beetles. I loved how this yellow one looked against the red of the church, Templo de San Javier.
I skirted around the hotel El Camino Real, following the road around until I saw an interesting building ahead. At first I thought it was a castel. Then I got a good look at it and realized that it was a modern construction. Thanks to Shad! (Click here to find out more than you ever needed to know about castles.) The Hotel Castillo Santa Cecilia was built in 1951. I think I would rather stay in my AirBnb.
After being disappointed with the “Castle” I circled and made my way back towards town. I enjoyed the vistas as I went.
Once in town, I just wandered around enjoying the visual stimulation, including Monumento al Pipila Guanajuato, which towers over the town. maybe one day I will hike up there. It is said that the view of town is stunning from the area around the base. I was zoomed pretty far, so it is much further than it looks.
When my watch told me that I had met my exercise goal, I turned around and headed home.
