Sunday Walk & Bento (日曜散歩と弁当)

Let's walk around Lake Murray! It's a cement path, about 6 miles long. We can then eat our bentos at a picnic table!

Let's meet at the south entrance at 12pm, and chat there for about 20 minutes / until everyone has arrived. The south entrance is off of Kiowa Drive. We want to meet on the far North-East end of the parking lot at the beginning of the trail. This map should show you where-- (sorry I'm really bad with google maps)

So, YOU WILL NEED:

-a bentou

-a water bottle

-walking shoes

-maybe sunscreen or sweatshirt(???)

    Thanks so much to Dorothy. This was a lot of fun, and I got to eat a 弁当 for the first time in a long time.

    Okay just in case, I'm going to describe the trailhead more thoroughly. I really hope nobody gets lost!! I'm a little new at organizing this sort of thing. (^^; )

    The GOOGLE LINK in the description, which is pretty specific. If you drive NORTH ON KIOWA, you'll enter the park. There might be a small parking fee (I always bike there so idk). So go NORTH and KEEP TO THE RIGHT whenever the road splits into the parking lot. The very north-east end of the parking lot is the trailhead. That's where we'll be. I'll wear a big white sign on my backpack saying "日本語 SDJLC SDJAPANESE." I'll wear a red shirt and black pants and my backpack is red and black. I'll also be wearing pigtails. (^_^)
    Mimi posted good driving instructions below--thanks Mimi!!

    BTW sorry to SHOUT, it's a bunch of text and I just want it to be easy to read! (^^; )

      Oh, as you'll see in the map posted in the description, there is actually a right turn that leads into a little loop-dee-loop parking lot. But even from there the trailhead should be pretty obvious.

    Is the trail called Lake Murray Path? I found these directions on http://www.mtrp.org/lake_murray.asp Was wondering if they're correct: Can be accessed from the parking lot at the Kiowa Drive entrance, from the path off of Baltimore Drive, or from Murray Park Drive by the Lake Murray softball fields and tennis courts.
    From Interstate 8 - Take 8 to the Lake Murray Blvd. exit. Turn north onto Lake Murray Blvd. and proceed for 0.5 miles. Turn left onto Kiowa Drive. The entrance is 0.2 miles down Kiowa Drive.

      One of the maps I had posted above pointed to the north side of the lake when it really needed to be the south side. I fixed it but I hope everyone knows!

    Dorothy, I often missed to see members at the event because I don't know many member's face. So can you please have some kind of sign of SDJLC ( San Diego Japanese Language and Culture )? I really would like to join with you guys for this event.

      If I'm on time, you can try looking for my hair. Lol
