Ahhhh, slept in today. What a treat. Bob and I planned to do the 10k (6.2 miles) Schertz (pronounced shirts) Historic Volksmarch which is about 35 minutes from us.
The day was partly cloudy with a forecast high of 76 degrees. Our starting point was the Shertz YMCA. After I signed in and we picked up our map, we headed across the parking lot to the Veterans Memorial Plaza.
This is a beautifully done memorial to honor soldiers who have fallen in the line of duty.
In the center pentagon is a statue of a Battle Cross: boots, rifle and helmet.

The walk wound back and forth through neighborhoods, past ball fields and a park. Spring is definitely in the air.

By the time we returned to the YMCA parking lot, our car was the only one left. (The Y closed at 5 pm, we were back to the lot by 5:30 pm.)
Travel Bug out.
