What I want to know is, when are you going to produce a book with all your images, and especially the evocative birds? I place my order here and now!I set out early this morning to walk the trails and boardwalks at Burns Bog. About 1 km in, the path to access the trails became a river!

So...Plan B. The trails of the nature reserve at Boundary Bay. A beautiful cold and windy day.

1284?? A blighted year for the inhabitants of Hameln, (Hamblyn) Germany. Hopefully a more auspicious one for the Dutch. (I passed New Years day, 2011 in Hameln when on my way to SdC).Hi ,
That is the " big church " from 1284.
Hmmm... I always thought that it was only 1 and it was because he was on crutches and couldnt keep upOnly two children remained -one that was blind so he couldn't show where they others had gone, the other one dumb so he couldn't tell either. -thought to be based on an historical tragedy.
There's also an emigration theory -for example, children being sold to a recruiter from the Baltic region or sent as settlers to Transylvania...Hmmm... I always thought that it was only 1 and it was because he was on crutches and couldnt keep up
In any case... IMHO The Children's Crusade might have had something to do with it (The timing is "perfect")
Well, at least you are not entering your third or fourth week of single digit temperatures (F), grey skies, a little bit of snow every few days (just enough to make cycling impossible), and no end in sight. Polar vortex, they say.Did I tell you already that I get fed up with this weather...
Of course, the oldest, biggest and most experienced is called Umiak, he is a mountain veteran that used to pull heavy sleds on long and remote expeditions. He even worked as an actor playing a wolf one day ;-)...do the huskies have names?
it's a puzzle!
I'm reminded of an incident that happened to Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman. He was a fraternity pledge at MIT. The pledges were packed into trunks of cars and driven to the middle of nowhere in Maine and dropped off in the middle of night to find their way into a town. One pledge laughed at the situation. He said just follow the road and at each junction turn in the direction of the most electric and telephone wires.I think we'll have to teach some orienteering here!!
I loved the Le Puy Camino. The photo of the dwelling with the blue shutters was such a reminder of France to me!...have a nice day!

Here is another way. On my Android phone using Google Photos I can select Library - Utilities - Collage - select the photos - Create (Create appears once two photos have been selected). Google does the arranging though.
Go to the following post by @Koidream to see how to submit thumbnail pictures.PS : the option re "thumbnails" seemed absent...

No fair!!!! Beautiful pictures, Luka (for forum members who aren’t familiar with wikiloc, you can add pictures as you walk, and Luka added some beautiful ones to her tracks if you go to the link).My little loop of today. Partly on the Camino del Norte, but for me that is local.
From Nueva to Playa de San Antolín combining the Camino and the E9 (circular) Hiking trail in Nueva, Asturias (España). Download its GPS track and follow the itinerary on a map. Another easy and pleasant walk along the Asturian coast, passing two secluded beaches. Parking your car in Nueva is...www.wikiloc.com

Rather busy with daytourists ( all wearing masks and observing social distance) but there are still quiet parts at the beach.
Glorious weather for the end of February.
Wonderful photos! Those houses! Wow! So interesting to see the Amish buggies parked in front of an MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) thrift shop! I'll tell my great aunt about it - she worked for years with the MCC and helped run a thrift shop here.Finally, a day with above freezing temperatures, sun, and winds below 15 mph. Perfect combination. First, I went down to Amish country,
