Join the South Shore Walkabouts and Social Fun members and guests @ the South Shore Plaza in Braintree as the South Shore Walkabouts continue their Sunday Morning Mall Walks in February! We are looking forward to continuing our Sunday Mall Walks in February, then see what members would like to do going forward - either continuing weekly or switching to every other week thru March and possibly into April.
We will walk the mall and then possibly settle in at the Food Court for a little while to plan future meetups, chat more, and possibly indulge in a beverage or food. With the newly added Nordstrom wing, it is possible to walk a mile without all of the nooks and crannies. The walk will last about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how long we decide we want to walk. [Plan to join us for an hour if you only plan to walk, or about 1&1/2 hours if you plan to join us in the Food Court after our walk.]
For our Mall Walks, we will use the following general "game plan." We will walk the first floor first and then go upstairs to walk the second floor which is carpeted. We will plan to walk about 3 miles. The first 1/2 of our first lap will be at a casual leisurely pace. The next 1/2 lap we will pick-up the pace. The final 1/2 lap we will walk a casual leisurely pace. All in all, the plan is to walk 1 lap on the 1st floor and 2 laps on the 2nd floor. I will lead the way so you can learn the walking route.
-The Mall opens @ 8am for Mall Walkers. The Mall officially opens for shopping @ 11:00am on Sundays.
-If you want to continue to join the Sunday Morning Mall Walks please join the South Shore Walkabouts.
-There is no need to RSVP No unless it is to change from a Yes to a No.

A Note About Jackets: While there is no formal coat area, we will be walking before the Mall opens and as many walkers do, we can leave our coats on one of the benches. Since there will mostly be Mall Walkers chances are pretty good that our coats will be fine. I've never heard of a stolen coat while someone was Mall Walking. (We will pass by the bench once or twice on the first level and then we will be able to see it from the 2nd level 2 or 3 times.)
