Where did you walk ( locally ) in 2019

I was out fairly early this morning and was struck by the contrast between the cries of the seagulls and the lights in the Financial Services buildings. Which of the two make the world go round? Our natural world, or our contrived world? I couldn't upload the short video so you will just have to imagine the cries of the gulls. Had my knee injection so maybe won't be walking for a few days, but sincerely hope to have something worth posting soon!

It is a bit dark here at the moment at daytime. Sun beiing back over the horizon around January 20. Too little snow for skiing at the moment, but still a walkingpath to my local hill! Happy new year everyone!

Such lovely photos! and in them, the author is smiling through! Glad I looked at this on my laptop, as the snow seems to be quite at home falling on your photos. Usually I just shiver when I see that snow...

Except the Francés
Almost perfect cloudless morning up here on the Scottish border; woken up at 6 by surprisingly bright tiny slither of dying moon with Venus in close pursuit. Still short days up here (sunrise-sunset 8.34-15.53, compared to Santiago's 9.05-18.10) so up the fell with the hound as soon as possible, 300m of ascent in the first 3km from my front door, and no tarmac. The main thing I miss on the camino is my vizsla.

A question: How can I manage to see all of a photo? On my iPad I often have to just give up, and the previous post has a photo I would love to see properly. Any ideas?

On the (half) photo you see, look for the symbols that come and go in the top right hand corner .. the square with the arrow is the second from the left (I think 🤔) ... touch it and a new tab will open with the photograph ... 🤗

@kirkie
Edit: I’ve sent you a PM ... it’s a lot ‘clearer’ than the above! 😂

It still feels a bit empty, almost echoing here.. 😔 Like I am a bit lost and NOT at home, in my virtual albergue. 😭 Where are you all? Shall I send out a search party? Elephant? Mouse? Anyone? Maybe I have to go out in the garden to look in the cherrytree?

Collingwood Beach, Jervis Bay. Best spot on earth! And yes, the front yard - of a family beach house in which we stay each year.
I ❤ it! Congratulations to you and your family to have access to a bit of paradise on earth! 😊☺🤗

I didn't take any pictures on my last walk, it is so grey and NOT so seneric here right now.. Maybe I will do that today..

This is one I took on Monday morning en route to getting the jab in my knee that has meant house imprisonment. Free tomorrow so hope it will be a nice day...

For interest, I usually attach screenshots but this is a photo plain and simple, so I will check when I have posted if there is a difference in how it shows up on ipad. The photo was taken around 8am, facing south across the River Liffey.

January 2019, French Camino
Did a 30km mountain hike. It took me 11 hours (including 1 hour on the peak) to go up and then down 1300m. It was an awesome and beautiful walk, on which trekking poles did a miracle for my stability and knees, particularly downhill. Now, I still fell twice on a steep section of the icy trail where I averaged 1km/h, but I slided at least half dozen times.

For some reason i can't upload photos.

Camino Sanabrés from Ourense, September 2019
 20190102_144020.jpg With the holidays over, and the fireworks no longer an issue, I finally got out walking in the afternoon instead of the evening, and could enjoy the farm roads that edge our villages. Free at last! 😊

It was cold, it was rainy, it was typical dutch weather but I loved it! A 20K walk to the coast. It was a good start of a brand new year ;)

Via dela plata, via Francigena
Walked the “Cuillcagh” in Co Fermanagh, Ireland. It’s over natural and preserved bog, a good 10k, famous for the boardwalk part.

Walked around Milngavie Reservoir which is just outside Glasgow, on New Years Day, not an overly strenuous walk but delightful.

At last a day when it was possible to take a walk in the neighborhood without getting wet and cold... we had a little snow before Christmas but on Christmas Eve it started to rain heavily and since then it has been plenty of rain, sleet, strong wind and fog. But today a little snow again and a hope of seeing the sun again. The sun is hidden behind the mountains for six weeks.840CA2F0-6D9E-4C1E-AAF1-7E7CA4DC9CD0.jpeg19986A7F-089C-4115-99DB-FFACE56FB65F.jpeg13AD71F2-8D82-40CA-A8D7-18B79E2EB0D9.jpeg

*where* doesn’t matter. What has been significant is that another forum member invited me out for a walk. And then we bumped into each other this morning. And we’re meeting at 6:55am tomorrow. As well as all that, she invited another couple who turned out to live a few houses away from me and I’ve bumped into them out walking twice in two days as well!

This year: once a week 'round my home-hill "Gehrdener Berg", 11km / 1:55h, mild up and downs.
Last year: several times to the "Brocken" in the Harz-Mountains. From Schierke on the "Eckerloch-trail" 5.5km / 500m ascent / best time 1:28h or from Torfhaus via the "Goetheweg" 9km / 350m ascent / 2:34h.
Have a look at: Nationalpark-Website.

At the moment both trails are closed due to the weather and heavy snowfalls. Will be reopened from tomorrow / sunday (hopefully).

No views of my walk today. Sun too strong in my eyes. Lovely brisk walk along by the river, into town and back out again. Chinese New Year celebrations evident in a few places. Here is a view from another walk along same route.

This was a week-and-a-half ago now but I forgot to post it then. It was a 15km hills-to-coast walk in the Sintra-Cascais National Park at the western-most point of Portugal and continental Europe.

And yesterday morning I walked from central Lisbon to Belém (about 6km) and went into the Jerónimos monastery for the first time in years.

What a lovely collection of photos you all have! These are from my “local “ walk ( part of the Hebridean Way) a couple of days ago. I walk it so often but never tire of it.
