Another powerwalk today, this time the coastal path - 1st set of photos

β€’50 Replies

Hi all

I hope you've all had a good day and the weather has been good where you are.

I decided upon a coastal walk today and enjoyed every bit of it. I walked 12.45 miles. There weren't too many people around which was a bonus.

I hope you like the photos. The middle left photo is the Wild Garlic which I got a lovely whiff of it today, the middle photo is showing that the woods are greening up and the bottom right photo is of our local church.

Enjoy the rest of your day/evening.

You are a great example and inspiration for us that we can make a difference at any moment❀️. The rain is needed for us in California cuz we experience the drought for years now. I’m making lunch, mushroom and spinach omeletteπŸ˜‹. Enjoy your end of the day relaxation Alicia. ❀️❀️❀️🌻🌺🌻🌹🌈xxxx

My son lives in Sacramento . His block has the air con on now .

Oh my Sacramento has extreme weather. πŸ˜… It is still chilly over here in LA. Have a wonderful day focused1! πŸŒˆπŸŒ»πŸ™

Wish it would rain here. Desperately need it for the garden, but no sign of any and we are supposed to be having April showers! Out with the hose soon I guess. ☹️

in reply to diana1998

I do but overnight please. I agree the gardens need it. We're getting the cold but not any substantial rain. We had some a couple of days ago but it wasn't much. Our eater butt still has some water in it.

Yes, we are supposed to have plenty of April shower but still just a couple of showers here n there. It comes to the point forget the hose, won’t make much difference anymore. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈHave a wonderful day Diana! πŸŒˆπŸŒ»πŸ™

Thank you ☺️

You’re welcomed πŸ€—πŸ™

Wow - that is my kind of walk, Alicia! The photographs are amazing. Everywhere is greening up beautifully and the church is so pretty.

You certainly had a long walk today. The weather here has been quite sunny here but I have been at work so not able to enjoy it. Never mind!

I hope you have a relaxing evening after all the exercise 😊🌷🌸

in reply to Dovedale4

Thank you, it really us greening up which I'm so happy about. Yes that's our local church which really is pretty.

I'm glad you've had the sun and hope you get to enjoy it when you're not working.

Thank you, relaxing watching TV.πŸŒΊπŸŒΈπŸ™πŸŒΌ

First time I've seen a friend as my pmr won't allow decent countryside walks alas. My brother's whole life is made up of walking with different friends every day and when he's in Greece he also swims daily. He drives there every year. Lucky thing to be so fit!!

in reply to diana1998

I definitely understand how fortunate I am as I have a dear friend who's only 40 but has severe back pain and can hardly walk. She's recently had a major operation but been told she'll be in pain for the rest of her life and I have a friend who has ME. My heart goes out to you and others that are unable to just get out there and exercise.

I'm so pleased you saw a friend and as things move in I hope you continue to meet friends.

Take careπŸ˜˜πŸ™

Stunning. The wild garlic is even growing well in the NW .

in reply to focused1

Thank you. Oh that's excellent to hear, you'll be getting that lovely aroma.


Beautiful!!! How old is your church?

in reply to metalminded

Thank youπŸ™. It was built approximately 1327 to 1483 around Edward III to Edward IV.

Wow!!!!!! I’m a total history nut. I hope before I’m too old I can visit the UK to see places like this!

Do you know if you can take pictures of the interior of the church?

I’d love to see more of the outside too and if there is a cemetery pictures of some of the stones. 😊

in reply to metalminded

History is very interesting,I really hope you are able to visit.

I would think so but I'll check.

Oh yes, my husband has been researching on his family history for a while now and found a grave, believe or not, in our local church, the grave was of 3 generations.πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

That’s amazing!! I’ve done it too but have had a hard time getting past my great-great-great Grandfather who was born in 1827 in Templederry, Tipperary, Ireland. However, Franklin, my surname, isn’t terribly Irish.

Another generation or 2 does go back to England but I can’t be sure.

Thank you, if you’re able to take pictures.

I appreciate it very much!!

in reply to metalminded

I know he was very pleased and now has a photo of the grave. I cannot believe we got married and moved to a place where his ancestors lived. Isn't it amazing when you look back and see where your family were from.

My father's side were Northern UK and my grandfather was killed in the 1st World War, my dad's dad.

I expect you'll find out more, online is an excellent tool for finding things out.

You're welcome.

That is amazing! I found out that a relative of mine lived in my state and only a little more than an hour away. My wife and I took a trip to the cemetery where he’s buried and found he had a huge marker! I was surprised!

I plan another trip there so I can see if I can find any other information about him

in reply to metalminded

Oh that's fantastic that you found where you ancestor was buried.

That'll be very interesting.

I know, I can’t wait to start looking into it.I never knew any of my Dad’s side of our family was further west from NY, everyone was in upstate NY.

in reply to metalminded

It'll be so good to find out who they were, what their occupations were and anything else.πŸŒˆπŸ˜ŠπŸ™
