Walking alone can be a wonderful time to pray and think and get your creative juices flowing.
Walking with a partner has its benefits as well. A time to talk and hash out problems or just share dreams and make plans.
Sometimes a group is good...last year we joined a walking club. We were hoping for a chance to meet a few new friends who shared our love of walking. We also saw it as a way to venture out of our comfort zone and walk places in our town where we've never walked before.
Last weekend we took a 10k group walk to Riverside,
Jacksonville is a beautiful city to walk and Riverside is one of my favorite neighborhoods.
Moss draped tree lined streets.
The gorgeous St Johns River
Beautiful old houses. (John, Hint, hint...this one's for sale.)

This was our first visit and I'm glad we decided to stay for lunch. The menu is mostly Southwestern fare with a nice selection of tacos, burittos, enchiladas and quesadillas. A few surprises thrown in like crab cakes and meatloaf with mushroom gravy means a little something for every taste.
I decided on the Chicken and Spinach Quesadilla
A flour tortilla filled with chicken, goat cheese, white cheddar, spinach and roasted garlic. Served with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
The tortilla was grilled so it was slightly crisp. I really liked the goat cheese. It added a salty, savory flavor to the mild chicken and spinach.
John ordered the Stacked Pulled Pork Enchilada. I'll be honest when it came to the table we weren't sure it was an enchilada. That is until the waitress pointed out that it was stacked and not rolled!
Slow roasted carnitas style pork on blue corn tortillas smothered with ranchero sauce, cheese and sour cream. Served with rice and black beans.
We shared so I got to taste the enchilada and it was delicious. I liked my quesadilla but I really enjoyed the enchilada.
Even though we got to the restaurant around 11am quite a few tables were already filled. The service was friendly and our meals came out quickly.
Lunch for two with water to drink including the tip was $22. A little pricey for lunch but we made it our main meal for the day. I don't mind paying a little more if the food and service is really good. And it was really good at Mossfire Grill.
