A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

After the mishap which gave me a significant black eye, it's been a couple weeks since I have ventured back onto my bike for a ride.  But, today I felt it time to return to the saddle once again!

Within a few blocks of home, I'm transported to relaxed scenes along the American River Parkway.  It's a gorgeous day here.  Temps are hovering around 80 degrees.  A few folks taking advantage of fresh air and sunshine provided aquatic accents on waters near mile 16 of the Parkway.

Reduced motor vehicle traffic on our roads since coronavirus "shelter-in-place" orders have been in place, are providing the bluest Greater Sacramento skies I've seen recently!

For more information about the Parkway, visit The American River Parkway Foundation website.




I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on these photos, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope you will contact me by email or by visiting my website www.myrljeffcoat.com - Thank You!

It is great to get out and take in the views!  Next week my gym is opening back up so I plan to get back to my lap swimming regimen!

Good for you for getting back in the saddle, and thank you for the gorgeous photos of the American River. It reminds me of the rafting trip we took on this beautiful waterway.  A

You braved the bicycle again and you were rewarded with peaceful tranquility! There's something about the water that does that for me too. I am glad to hear you had such an enjoyable time. Over the years of reading your blog posts, it appears to me there's a lot to do in your area and you make the best of it too! After all, nothing trivial, like a tumble and a black eye can keep you down.

Hi Myrl,
So good to see that you're out and about in the fresh air again!  Nature is good for our spirit, isn't it?

Nina Hollander - While swimming is my first choice for exercise, riding my bike comes in a close second.  That's especially important now, when my health club pools are closed. 

Barbara Todaro - I think Mr. Rogers would have thought I live in a pretty good neighborhood.

Brian England - Swimming is my foremost mode of exercise.  I have missed it so much.  I haven't seen a date for re-opening our gyms and health clubs here in California yet! 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - American River Rafting rents rafts on the one end of my community, and you can raft down the river for a few hours and get out at the other end of our community.  I have enjoyed those trips many times.

Roy Kelley - Yard work is one of those things I've found is never ending, but enjoyable too! 

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - Yes, there is a ton of things to do in the Greater Sacramento Area.  And, within 100 miles of home is Napa Wine Country, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe and California Gold Rush Towns.  There's never a shortage of places to go. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - It was only guilt from not getting out there and exercising more that got me back on the bike.  But, if guilt is the only motivator available, I'll take it!

Michael J. Perry - I understand that sunshine and vitamin D is a great immune system booster.  It also helps you absorb other vitamins you take in from food, etc.  I've been trying to take in at least a half hour a day of glorious sunshine.  It's free, and it's very beneficial. 

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR - Thank you for telling me about Brian's reblog.  It's greatly appreciated! 

Carol Williams - That's absolutely true.  Nature is a healer of the spirit!

That sounds like a fantastic day! I didn't know you had fallen and gotten a black eye. Good for you for getting back on the bike!

And it's sad that we can't keep those blue skies blue!

Myrl great to see people out.  But I didn't think your governor was allowing people out on the water yet.

Are the rattle snakes just on the far side of the lake. I have spent a lot of time along the American river and I have never seen a snake; just heard the warnings...

Hope you had an awesome weekend Myrl Jeffcoat

Beautiful Photos - glad you are able to enjoy the outdoors again Myrl. Today it's rainy and 62 degrees here in NW Indiana so my grandson and I watched Mr. Rogers Neighborhood - still a beautiful day for me even inside :)

Have a great week!
