When I got back to my office today, my HEALTH app on my iPhone showed that I had walked 1.3 miles, taken 3,135 steps, and climbed 14 floors.
And it's no wonder, I showed three homes in Carmel Valley, one of them with acreage on top of a hill with awesome views, another one had probably the steepest climb I've ever done from street level to the front door, and all three had 2nd stories.
Looking back over the last few weekends, that's been pretty much the norm. In fact, when I show homes in Carmel Valley here on the Monterey Peninsula, I make sure I dress the part so I can tramp around the hillsides with my clients. Some well broken in boots are always in my car now, plus I have a favorite pair of jeans so that I can follow my clients across meadows, vineyards, organic gardens and other wonderful spaces that come with homes in the valley.
Once the sun gets a little stronger, I will be wearing my new cowboy hat on these outings. The sun can get pretty strong.
And, no, this definitely does not mean we are "dressed down"; check out these outfits that my two side kicks and I have on while strolling down Ocean Avenue in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
