Train wordart from Valerie Randall Retired. (RIP)

Marilyn trekked all over Balboa Park to walk a mile (or two or three) in my boots (or flip flops) in the name of our friendship. It means alot to me that she went to that effort so I made her a layout of one possible route that she took within the park. It's not my travel but it fits the challenge so here it is! 

Thanks for looking.

It is very neat that you guided MariJ on her tour of San Diego Zoo, which I hear is a wondrous place. Wonderful scrapping with the map and photos.

I LOVE this Amy!   It really was a walk of friendship and I was SO determined to find your zoo and say hello!  I love how you showed my crazy, go around-and-around trek, sometimes in circles and how you actually were able to map it all, I wouldn't have had a clue as to where I was except for start and finish.  You used the perfect word art for how I (we) felt that day and I like that you included the photo I texted to you when I did find the zoo.  Those elephants were a life saver because they showed me at last I was on the right track and I was so excited later when you told me I was right near your old office. I'm glad you starred them along with the zoo itself.   I am so happy to see this page, my walk was a special experience and I'm happy to have it documented.   I really like all the scrapbook elements you used and how you created a gorgeous layout from this all, thank you, Amy!  💜

PS to explain a bit - it took me 90 minutes of back and forth and around and around to finally get to the zoo due to crazy phone walking directions and a bit of construction.

And, then it took me NINE, yes nine minutes to reverse and get back to where I'd started.   Crazy!

Actually, the story was I was at the park, but wanted to walk to the zoo to say "hello" from Amy.   See above, it took forever, directions were awful and I was hot, tired and hungry when I got there, albeit very triumphant!   After explaining to Amy later what I saw, about where I was and showing her my photos - she actually figured out my route!  Pretty amazing!
