6.5 months after my foot surgery, a hike, an eclipse and new jewelry designs!

It was a long recovery from my foot surgery and I'm not back to 100% yet - but I am back to playing soccer!  And I don't have the achilles pain after playing anymore so the surgery was a success!  Before surgery I was limping after the first half of play.   I even did my first HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) class and Orange Theory class.  In both of those classes the lack of strength in my legs was very obvious- LOL!  So I still have more work to do increasing the strength in my legs and flexibility in my achilles - but my surgery foot isn't keeping me from doing too many things.  About 2 weeks ago I went on a hike with my bro and one of his friends from La Jolla up to Mt. Soledad.  I didn't make it to the top since the last part of the hike was a REAL steep incline on city streets and my achilles told me to head back downhill after it got a serious workout as we hiked through the very steep La Jolla nature park and on the uphill trek to get to the last climb for Mt. Soledad.

The sun appeared over the ocean as I headed down and turned the water a glorious blue color!

And I didn't even post on the day of the eclipse - but I did get a picture of the eclipse through the leaves of our wisteria - with Max, our Westie, keeping an eye on things.  :)
