A lovely woodland walk again today - first set of photos

Hi all

I did the housework with hubby this morning and then went out for a walk late morning into the afternoon. Our forecast here for today was showers, possibly heavy at times but I only had one shower whilst out and I was in the woods at the time so didn't get wet, by the time I got out of the woods it was sunny again, I was pleased about that.

I hope you like the photos.

I did 18611 steps today.

Thank you and it was much cooler today and windy but mainly bright where I am.

Thank you Jerry, I do love the estuary, it's very pretty there and of course I love the woods, you see so many different things in woods and here the different birds.

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

It's so wonderful having so much countryside around you and so many lovely scenes to photograph. That amount of steps converts into quite a few miles I think. So glad you enjoyed it. 🌼😊🌈

in reply to bobbybobb

Thank you Bobby and it really is, I love the countryside. Yes I was pleased with the amount of steps, more than I thought it would be. You just can't best the British countryside.

Really nice pics

in reply to lizzybk

Thank you :)

Beautiful walk. Are you doing any challenges, given your amount of exercise. I'm doing a couple... slightly nervous as one starts on Wednesday 🙄.xx🌈

in reply to mattymoo33

Thank you Matty. I was due to do a 26 mile fast walk across the Derbyshire Dales but unfortunately it was due to take place in May so has been moved to next year. I was also due to take part in another 26 miler in August but I've sadly had to pull out as my foot isn't ready - I damaged it jogging and there's no way I'd be able to walk the 26 miles without damaging it further. I also would love to cycle the Lands End to John O' Groats but need to look at ways to do it that will be cost effective.

I've done 2 powerwalk half marathons and 6 powerwalk marathons I have to say I always feel nervous at the beginning but as soon as I put one foot in front of the other I'm absolutely find. Well done to you, what are you doing?

Crikey honey, you definitely don't do things in a small way! I'm doing 1,000,000 steps over 3 months (roughly 10,000 a day) for a charity. Then in September, cycling 250 miles. Wish me luck 🏃🚵👌

in reply to mattymoo33

I do love walking and cycling. Hey well done, that's amazing. Good luck for the cycle ride in September, that'll be great. All the challenges I've done have been for charity so it's amazing on how much is raised for the organisations.

You're going to love every minute of it. :)

Beautiful, where is this?

in reply to 5195

Thank you, it's in the South Hams in Devon, not too far from Plymouth.

Hi, were do you live, I need to live there ,get some sanity back,it's looks glorious so peaceful,and you must be feeling very fit with all these steps you are taking, I will do a deal with you, I will swop you a bit of seaside for a lot of countryside (lol)🌝🌝

in reply to Willowrabbit

I live in the South Hams on the edge of Plymouth right on the coast. My favourite definitely is the countryside for sure rather than the sea but I feel very fortunate as I have both right on my doorstep, what's not to love.

What part of the coast do you live then?

I love feeling fit, heavens help my hubby if I ever have to stop, I'll be a nightmare LOL.

Hi, I live in Southend on sea, not by choice, a long story, I used to live in Nottinghamshire, and often went to Derbyshire to walk and be in the glorious countryside, I used to think ,when I retire I'm going to live there, but fate had a say in this, when I gave birth to my one and only child something else decided to come out with her, it was MS, so that put paid to that.

So I have made my garden my sanctuary, and love spending time with the birds I feed and watching my flowers grow, it doesn't take much to please me 🌝🌝 then last year I had a blood test and the doctor told me my thyroid was playing up, I didn't think much about it ,but once on the levo I began to feel really ill, the doc didn't want to know so it help yourself time,so I did, but still not feeling right, but anyway keep walking and going to see your lovely countryside, take care in these difficult times x

in reply to Willowrabbit

I couldn't agree more with you regarding Derbyshire, it's beautiful and we holiday there every year now, such beautiful countryside. I'm so sorry you have MS, I really do feel for you and wish there was something that could cure it.

Isn't it lovely having a garden and listening and watching the birds, we have feeders in our garden as well and they give so much pleasure watching them. Flowers are beautiful this time of year.

Oh no, I'm so sorry your doctor doesn't want to know, are you able to change doctors/get a second opinion? You shouldn't have to feel like that.

I certainly will thank you.

Take care

You are welcome. I'm glad you are quite happy now and it sounds like you are fairly stoic to me, well done on being strong.

Started off very grey here and when i was hanging my bedding out to dry thought it's going to rain but.hoped it would blow over and with wind knew would dry quickly, hopefully before rained but never did and around 5 came really close and took Archie out in just a tee shirt......and leggings of course LOL

in reply to Craftyperson

We've had loads of rain today and thick fog. Well done with your washing, mine ended up on the dryer, there rain didn't stop until the afternoon. Ah, bet you needed to run to keep warm 😂😂

CraftypersonReading Rabbits in reply to

Rain held off here thankfully, don't think I could run nowadays, well maybe if house on fire

in reply to Craftyperson

That's good, we had loads of rain this morning, then just foggy and damp this afternoon.

It's been muggy here today. I got my towels hung out and dry so that's good, was making my lunch came really black run out and got them in just in time and it rained for a whole 5 mins!!!

in reply to Craftyperson

It's not good when it's muggy, well done on getting your washing dry, bonus👍😊

CraftypersonReading Rabbits in reply to

No it's not and yes especially nice as was towels and much better dried outside and yesterday got bedding dry, though i might have mentioned that yesterday!!

in reply to Craftyperson

They certainly are, I don't like using the dryer but sometimes needs must as yesterday's weather here was awful.

CraftypersonReading Rabbits in reply to

I don't have a dryer

in reply to Craftyperson

I say I'd be lost without one but I must admit I hardly use it as I dont think it's good for the environment to use it too much

CraftypersonReading Rabbits in reply to

I think expensive to buy and run for occasional use. I do occasionally in winter go to launderette in winter to dry bedding and towels together.

in reply to Craftyperson

Yes you are right but I have to say I like the convenience and we've had the one we've got for years now. What I do like about them is that the towels are lovely and soft when they come out of a dryer.

Craftyperson profile image
CraftypersonReading Rabbits in reply to

Thats why in winter dry towels in launderette if not nice enough to hang out go too dry dried inside

in reply to Craftyperson

Yes they do come out lovely and soft

Inspiring walk.
