Another beautiful day

We are so fortunate in this country as we are still able to go out once a day for exercise, do our shopping and visit a pharmacy but I do understand that there are people that can't go out and my daughter is one of them as my youngest granddaughter has JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) and her condition affects her eyes. My daughter can't risk taking her out for exercise because of the drugs she's only but they are staying very upbeat and we speak to them every day and sometime sype call them so we can see them. Her hubby is able to buy the provisions so that's good.

Anyway, back to another beautiful day, I walked around the coast again today (I live by the sea) and walked 19580 steps which I'm pleased about.

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Beautiful! Walking in places like that are simple joys that cost nothing. Some of us are very lucky. I live in a village in the country and fairly close to the sea and I am so grateful. What part of the UK are these places you photograph? The coastline looks similar to the Welsh coast in South Wales where I live.

Congratulations by the way on your walking record.

Thank you Chrys. You are so right as walking costs nothing and so enjoyable. We certainly are fortunate to live in such beautiful places and what a lovely place you live in South Wales. I live in the Westcountry in a village in the South Hams.

Thank you, I want to keep it up as much as I can.

Oh Alicia, the South Hams are very special to me. When my husband was alive we used to stay in the village of Torcross each year. I have wonderful memories of times spent there and the surrounding area. Dartmouth was also special as my family had a lovely restaraunt there. Thank you so much.

I have just found my book of the Hams as talking to you has made me want to see those places again.

The Natural Regional Parc du Morvan, little off shoot of the Massif Centrale in France, beautiful area too.

Sounds lovely I love France, we went to Paris for our honeymoon many years ago, though I bet it’s changed now.

No, actually we live nearer to you than Cardiff so even closer , it’s a small world isn’t it🙂

I’ve sent you a PM

I'm a recent immigrant to Wales, I live in Pembrokeshire. The police are keeping us away from beaches and Coastal paths, because there are holidaymakers around here.

Cheers, Midori

Hi, Glad to meet you. What part of Pembrokeshire are you living?. I have spent so much time there over the years. As a child I had family in Tenby and regularly spent holidays with them. Later on, my husbands job allowed us to explore so much of this beautiful part of the world. We loved the coastal walks and little villages off the beaten track.. You say you are an immigrant to Wales. Where did you immigrate from?

It's such a small world and the virus is everywhere. Are you coping with the regulations of self isolating?

Best wishes, and Croeso Cymru to you and your family.

Chrys from South Wales

He'll again,

How are you coping with the lock down? I live in a village so can see horses passing by my window. Also the occasional person walking to the village shop for their newspapers.

I am catching up household chores, well overdue. I occasionally go a short trip out in my car to watch the lambs frolicking in a field. I do a walk while there so feel more energised when I get home. I am looking forward to pottering in the garden when the weather gets warmer. I am abiding by the rules and am just so grateful for what I have.

How are you spending your time? Do you have any hobbies that help yo pass time?

Best wishes, Chrys

Thank you Jerry, it was lovely.😊

I had a short 4 mile walk today round the neighborhood and the local parks.

in reply to

That sounds like a nice walk, so good to get out.👍

That's good. A healthy body promotes a healthy mind. Keep it up for your well-being cat girl.

Yesterday I was tempted to have stayed on the couch as it was the time of the month but what I did was told myself that a short walk for half hour was better than no walk at all so decided I would just do half hour yesterday and got off the couch and went out and I wanted to keep on after the half hour as I was feeling loads better and then it was a 4 mile walk instead of half hour originally planned.

Today I have done 6 miles which I enjoyed and it's different not having the usual Saturday traffic on the roads here and no way am I going near any supermarkets unless I am really really in need of them as for now I can make do with what's in the cupboards for food.

What a fantastic attitude! You are finding the simple things of life make us happy and more contented. Yes, we should all be questioning ourselves... do I really need that?, Or......Yes, I can manage, its not that important!

Keep up your spirits, Chrys x

in reply to RoadRunner44

Since this kicked off a lesson I have learned is that simple is better!

knew that before

We woudlnt go to pharmacy, shop or for exercise or whatever if you paid us. Its the possibility of catching the virus that puts us off. We are very odd people. We prefer the idea of still being alive in five years time.

in reply to wiserlady

Fortunately our doctor's surgery dispenses medicines and they are doing this through a small window at the front so you're nowhere near them.

When I'm out walking I have a lot of space to myself so I'm fortunate that there isn't much of a risk, if I meet anyone its across a road or up or down a path.

in reply to wiserlady

That's very good and I'm pleased for you.

Thanks fir the lovely pics, I’m not far from the sea but am not allowed to leave the house and drive to the beach . Glad you enjoyed your walk though and that’s a lot of steps !! 😺

in reply to Jana101

You are welcome. I'm so sorry you aren't able to get to the beach, that's such a shame but I hope you have a garden or an open space.

Yes the walking is keeping me going for sure, I really do need to carry out some meal preps though.

I'm glad you have a garden, a saviour during these times.

Take care and keep safe.

WOW that place looks absolutely beautiful!

in reply to slothycoffee

Thank you, much appreciated 🙏

UK looks lovely. When this is over, I’d like to plan a trip there with my husband. I’d spend at least a month there walking in different localities and taking in the landscape. I love the views of the countryside. Thanks for posting.
