Today's walk and picnic with hubby

โ€ข40 Replies

Hi all

I went out on a coastal walk with my hubby today so no powerwalk, we do walk at different speeds. It was a lovely walk and we had a picnic looking across at the sea.

It was a beautiful morning but clouded over a bit this afternoon but still warm for the time of year. I walked 21, 556 steps which was 9.31 miles.

Enjoy the rest of your day, particularly as they are now longer.

Stay safe and well.

in reply to Snowdrops_17

Thank you. The leaves on the trees and hedges are coming out more and more and the weather this week with the sun will certainly encourage growth.

Thank you and I will.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

The photos are just beautiful Alicia, thank you. Idyllic surroundings for a picnic. Iโ€™m wondering what the little flowers are, they look a bit like violets. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿฆ‹

Thank you, it was a beautiful morning. We manged to get a seat just out of the wind so were lovely and warm when we were eating our sandwiches. You are right, the little flowers are wild violets, they are beautiful little flowers and they were my grandfather's favourite flower.๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿž๐Ÿด

Is that little violets I see there cf, my laptop is in the shop and I'm using my phone so the photos are quite small and I can't make the flowers out properly. Violets are close to my heart. Lovely pics anyway. xx

in reply to springcross

Yes you are right, they are little Violets, well spotted. Thank you and I also love Violets, they were my grandma's favourite flower xx

Hi Alicia. Beautiful photos once again! You are so lucky to live in such a picturesque area. I can see from the photos that the weather there was beautiful. I love walking coastal paths, so much to see and enjoy and a great night's sleep after the sea air ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you, it was a stunning morning/early afternoon. We've lived by the coast for many years. It is really lovely walking along coastal paths.

Thank you and hope you have a good night's sleep.๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒŠ

Exactly Jerry now you know why the coast is calling me I'm sure one day I'll be by the sea with my goldern spaniel dog called honey and 2 cats following ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŸ

Hi Jerry

It really was today as it was so quiet where we were sat and we heard and say a lit of Skylarks today, I love Skylarks.

The views were lovely.

Hope your evening is going well.

Stay safe and well Jerry.

Fabulous views your way Alicia! Are you a swimmer too? One of my sons is a wild swimmer and even dips in Hampstead pond on Christmas day! It's been hard during lockdown. He'd ideally love to be near the sea. Have a nice day. Still beautiful here near Cambridge.

in reply to diana1998

Thank you Diana. I don't swim often as I find the water too cold but maybe I ought to because of the health benefits. Well done to your son and I can imagine how hard it's been during lockdown.

It's lovely here now.๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™
