Beautiful photosWe are able to walk the back lanes from home. Spring has come and the primroses are out.
Out past the ford, up the hill to look over Dartmoor, round to the old bridge and then back finishing over the footbridge at the ford again - and then the short distance home.
The primroses here are on the bank sides along the road and we also have some in our little garden
I matched you so far today in distance, but far from the beauty you have shared with us! thank you.
I'm envious. Most US states have public seashore from the mean high tide line out. In Massachusetts (and I think Maine, which was once part of Massachusetts) the private property extends to the mean low tide line. Some walk the beach without trespass by using an exclusion to the trespass law, they walk with fishing gear. The nasty details are here if interested:The coastlines are free to roam and encouraged into being used...
Just one hour drive from my home is a real "gem". It's the gorgeous, deep, spring fed Lake Geneva, located in southern Wisconsin. The whole 20 mile perimeter along the water is a public path, although all the property is owned by wealthy individuals with mansions, and a few resorts, many built as summer homes of Chicago's elite in the late 1800's+. I have walked the whole distance twice, although usually opt for just a section and a nice lunch overlooking the water. The landscaping is beautiful and varied as each homeowner has their own style.

You are entitled to your rant, Sabine. Thankfully, the majority of people are respecting the regulations.An early morning walk to a neighbouring village that has a charming church dating back to the 12th century.
Glorious weather. I spotted some non local cars so I guess the local police will have to fine people again.
Some people just do not see the seriousness of the Covid situation in this country. No you cannot drive 100k by car to walk in another area! Rant over.
I "walked" out onto my deck a few days ago following the worst hail storm I have ever witnessed!
I thought this thread is about walking...not straddling!And the Icelanders, the puir b*stds, where do they go:

@Theatregal you are generous with sharing the wonderful world around you. When are you going to compile your book of birds?A sublime morning walk. Warm, a light breeze, the air fragrant from opening buds and blossoms. This area is near the airport and there is usually the constant sound of planes taking off and landing. Now, in our current times, it's mostly quiet except for bird song. Walking through the community garden and passing the faerie? elves? hobbit? : ) hut that someone started a few weeks ago. Today there was wood prepared for a fire circle in front

This is an exceptional tree I encountered unfortunately not this year . But when you sit under it you feel so much peace. It’s a sycamore tree planted the same time the cathedral was built in Famagusta from 1299. So if this one endured so can we.they might have to walk quite a bit to find a tree to hug as woods are few and far btw in Iceland, which is why I feeel sorry for them......
Thank you @kirkie Maybe a bird blog Especially for the bird life in the pin oak tree directly in front of my window. Now that I'm home all the time, I'm starting to feel like the Jane Goodall of the avian world. I'm noticing all the individual characteristics, varieties and behaviours of chickadees, hummingbirds, juncos, robins, finches, red wing blackbirds, flickers, starlings, hawks, crows... The excitement of seeing something new. Yesterday for the first time - a goldfinch in the tree!!!
The area you live in is so picturesque...many of the photos you share is almost like being on a Camino in Spain!Just some rain drops and then beautiful in the Dahner Felsenland in the Palatian Forrest

The Castle Trifels, where Richard Lionheart was prisoner.
And of course the Plantagenet ( broom Genisteae) plant is can be found as well.

Early morning or after sunset. Exactly. My walk today was from 1:30 AM to 9:30 AM (17.5 miles / 28 km). Really. And it was just a bit below freezing, attested to by a wet sleeve on my down jacket forming ice. Let me give some biography and history before I describe my walk. We are talking about Massachusetts, USA by the way.The best time to walk these days is early morning or after sunset. The trails near my home are now too busy after 9am.
This reminds me of an incident I had last year with a groundhog on a highway. I reported on it here (I would never have expected the sign).some people are not aware why you need to slow down in those toad areas. They may miss your vehicle, but the air pressure you generate with your fast driving car kills them.
Hi Delphinoula,Hi Tanja where did you find your wooden cup. I was considering a wooden cup for my next Camino in order to use less plastic. I hope it was filled with Viina?
Since we are talking about toads (in Norwegian: padder) I went 25 km in my car yesterday to take these pictures of our local toad ‘colony ‘.How lucky are you to spot those messengers of spring. We have signes here to warn the drivers of. At night when the toads cross the streets volunteers help crossing with collecting them in buckets carry them to the other side.
