Residents and history buffs alike can dive into it at the annual "Mysteries of Oakhurst Walking Tour," Sunday and Oct. 14, beginning at 3 p.m. both days.
The tours are led by Charles
Cope, who owns the local shoe store [One Step at a Time] and grew up in Oakhurst, and Jack Krost,
a journalist who moved to Oakhurst in 2002 and quickly fell under its
spell. The two have led the annual tour for five years, taking about an
hour and a half to cover 1 1/2 miles. Depending on the weather, groups
have ranged from a few dozen to 60 walkers.
Charles Cope was a classmate and friend (or at least a close acquaintance) of this writer at DHS. This writer vaguely remembers him as more of a quiet, bookworm, non-athletic type, but he's apparently now very into health and fitness with walking, running, biking, and other outdoor activities. See his ABOUT page. Good for him! Many people our age can't (or just don't) exercise to any extent, and are out of shape (in every sense of the word).
