Silver Oxide Camino de Santiago pendent
Camino de Santiago pendant that has a shell on the front, and "Camino de Santiago" engraved on the back. Comes with a black cord. Pendent is slightly larger than a 50 euro cent coin, about 25mm.

Where did you walk ( locally ) in 2021?

With almost spring-like temperatures, last Wednesday I drove to Uffenheim where I had left off my little German Camino last September (see post #14) and walked another leg of about 28 km through forests and fields to the beautiful medieval town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. I then took a train back to my car. Easy walking with just a day-pack! :)

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).

I remember that years ago we had some conversations about getting to the coast directly from La Nueva and continuing on to Ribadesella. I went into La Nueva, had a coffee, and then a few kms further on turned off to the coast. But as your tracks show, you can get there directly from La Nueva. Oh, would I love to go back to the Norte and add more “alternatives to the Norte’s asphalt” thread! Glad to see you enjoying some nice weather, Luka.

Buen camino, Laurie
Sorry, I know it is not fair... :oops:

And yes, I think I have about all coastal options between Llanes and Colunga covered now. It is a shame that the Camino doesn't take more advantage of them...

Another 10K walk not far from home. On the road we visited some chapels... as you can see.

Gives the whole Flemish concept " een kapelleke doen " a whole new meaning! :cool: Kapel = chapel .
For the non Flemish speakers here this is a colloquial expression for " stopping at every pub on the road ". Ironic seeing everything is still in lockdown here!

Walking today at the Maplewood Mudflats Conservation Area in North Vancouver. A beautiful area I haven't visited for a while.
So what is that bird in the tree? I saw a pair that looked an awful lot like that yesterday on my bike ride out in the country. Their heads might have been a bit bigger relative to the body size, but the colors were identical.

Question number 2 — any idea what’s in the gull’s mouth? It looks like octopus????

It's a Red-tailed Hawk in the tree. I think the gull has a starfish in it's mouth, with the arms facing out and the back in it's mouth.

I got a Peloton at the end of 2020, and It's been my main source of cardio exercise since. I decided to go on a brisk 6.5 (10km) mile hike with decent elevation gain yesterday. Even though I feel in better shape since getting the Peloton, the hike was tougher than expected. I went from an avid (5x a week) hiker to relying on the bike. A good reminder that I need to cross-train.

As far as the hike, beautiful scenery with plenty of people out enjoying the trails. Much more than I used to see pre-pandemic.

Hi there, @Yoyo
Were you able to go inside the St Jakobskirche? There is a fine wooden altar piece carved by Tilman Riemenschneider in which St Jakob is to the left, wearing a hat. I walked along the Romantische Strasse for a few weeks back in 2003, finishing in R.ob T. I think Riemenschneider's larger carving of St Jakob the Elder is in a museum elsewhere...

@lovingkindness Sadly, Jakobskirche was closed that day because of organ restauration work, so I couldn't get in to see the altar. But as I am currently based in the city of Würzburg where we have a large collection of Riemenschneider's work in the Museum für Franken, I'll be able to see some of his carvings once Covid opening restrictions have been lifted.
In the picture below you can see a fountain in Würzburg honoring Riemenschneider (and others).

Another good day for a long ride, I am feeling less caged in with spring on the way! Last week I spent a lot of time riding around little towns and looking for beautiful old homes, so this week I decided to head to some big parks to the east.

One of the parks has a little 19th century “town” put together with buildings moved from all over the county.

At an almost hidden cemetery, I saw gravestones from before the Civil War (nothing like visigothic or roman, I know :D ). I was filled with sadness to see that there had been vandalism to many of these old tombstones. What kind of person gets pleasure out of knocking down a memorial to someone who has died?

Not much walking recently as so much going on.....gardening, helping the daughters, homeschooling (hah..that lasted about 5 minutes...too stressful!)

So on 2 days this week, I was accompanied by 3 handsome companions
Thursday was a 2 hour walk...well a sloshing about on mud walk really..had to get a big stick to keep myself anchored with a few choice adjectives

They headed for the water.....Huckleberry Finn, eat your heart out!
Trying to jump the stream and landing in the water ...really did I care at that stage?
Then they spotted some swings that someone had kindly hung on the trees...Tom fell off and we thought he'd broken his arm..thought I was in the doghouse but he was ok ..actually that was the previous week, so this week I was on full alert!
By the time we got home, they were soaked to the skin and covered in mud
Shame our usual pub was closed...it's a lovely pub where the city of London can be seen in the distance from the patio

Friday it was tree day and we kept away from the mud and water
Heading to a cafe, they spotted a "climbing tree" as they put it and they were off and running, and climbing and a good 3 hour walk/climb
Never made it to the cafe though
The daughter thought we'd got lost in the forest
They still had energy to walk to the corner shop for sweets!!

The picture of the backs of their pants shows a lot of mud, but I have to say I expected to see a lot worse since they landed in the water.

You must be a beloved grandma if you let your grandkids do those things! (maybe not so beloved by the parents who have to clean up, though 🤣 )

Ha ha They'd almost dried off by the time we were going home!..the middle lad was the wettest as he has the shortest legs! . All in the name of FUN you see!

Sometimes one has just got to close ones eyes and let them at it!

And the washing....thank heavens for washing machines ..the hardest thing for me was loading it!
This is a walk we do quiet often but better in the summer when the river bed is dry...they still jump it but it's less fun of course

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

Looking forward seeing your pictures and stories behind it.
What a nice question! I miss it daily, being able to travel to Spain and walk the CF again. However, I now walk the Netherlands pelgrimpath, from Amsterdam Central Station to Maastricht, each saturday I walk one stretch. I am enjoying the countryside in Holland tremendously, especially after spending 60 hours behind the Team’s screen for work😉. I bought myself a bikecarrier, dropping off the bike each time at the endpoint and parking the car at the beginning of a stretch. I am now in South-Limburg, near Maastricht, which I have decided is definitely the most beautiful part of the Netherlands (because it looks so much like the North of Spain). I even start at the crack of dawn, just like on the Camino. Dear Spain🇪🇸 and hospitaleros, I will be back the day you open for us safely once again❤️❤️.

Dear Sabine, I looked up Belgium’s “declaration of honor” about crossing the Belgian border, because the final stretch of the Nl Pelgrimpath runs to Visé in Belgium, where it connects to the Camino Santiago, but I believe that indeed I need to wait, as walking this final stretch is not considered “essential”😉.

No matter at what hour of the day or night, these two ladies are always sitting chatting... and as for himself: nonchalant, no? The third photo shows part of the interior of a great place to get something from one of the variety of cafes lining the sides. People sit at the tables and chat in socially distant safety. There is also plenty of space outside - soon, with the turn of the season, that will be a great option as well.

Hi there @kirkie, these ladies remind me of a friendly lady I sat beside on a bench in Amsterdam one cold mid-winter's day: Greatest Amsterdammer of all time, Majoor Bosshardt! I had a wonderful Christmas dinner in Amsterdam one year along with 200 others. The Salvation Army brass band, timbrel players and singers entertained us all as we ate a feast cooked by a team of Amsterdam's leading chefs! Majoor B is sitting opposite the Sally Army drop-in centre, a great place for chatting + sharing stories...

As usual when facing the light, the picture looks a lot darker...it is a favourite shot. The second photo carries a warning: watch this space, because it is about to be swallowed up. The developer whose name is on the hoarding has plans for a 45 storey building. Argument is loud on the topic. Number three shows a real old anchor, but saved from rust. The final photo shows what some locals have done to compensate for having no private garden. They are using a common piece of grassed area that belongs to the local council.

I often am amazed at the photos shared on this thread of local walks by those of you who live in the EU and UK. I think to myself that so many of them remind me of old villages and architecture seen on my walks through Spain, France, Ireland and England...and how lucky you all are.
I returned a week ago back to Illinois. Local trails are covered with snow and slush, so I have been walking in my neighborhoods on the roads. My boring walk today, but sunshine
and 62°F made it worthwhile to go out.
Our community sponsored a contest last summer painting the fire hydrants.

We're half a continent away from Chris(sy) but we had much the same weather today.We actually saw a young woman on the trail wearing shorts.

Since my last report we have been mainly walking the little used road I mentioned. This last week has had us walking back in the woods. The deep snow with the frozen footprints underneath has turned into packed snow or ice where you can see the rough spots. It's okay walking with grippers attached to the shoes.

The rest of the week is likely to be sunny with spring warmth. The snow in the sunnier front yard is mostly gone and some snowdrop buds have opened up.

Only recently have I learned that my iPhone has a built in app that automatically counts my steps. Yesterday I put in 10,000+ steps which at my slow pace takes me about two hours. A surprise sighting of an early flowing rhodo and azalea(?), and a spell at the waterfront watching the goings on while I sipped a latté. A juvenile gull and an adult glaucous-winged gull (as a birding friend tells me).

Lovely photos. I too have the native health app and I ditched the other one as it had ads. Today, 12,787, 7km. Yesterday almost zero, and previous day a double quota because I knew yesterday was a no-no. I have stopped using wifi when out and it still clocks up the steps.

Wow - lots of love locks in this area! What part of the waterfront is this in your photos? Lovely days we're having right now!
This is down at Lonsdale Quay. I heard a discussion a few days ago about locks having to be removed from bridges because their weight causes problems. But these locks at Lonsdale Quay are not on a bridge and, so far, I guess their weight has not been an issue.

A three hour walk around the Stanley Park seawall with a short rest for a picnic lunch. But it felt more like six hours and I came home with a blister; one would think I’d know better.

- looking east up the inlet towards Iron Workers’ Memorial Bridge
- west towards Lions Gate Bridge
- Girl in a Wet Suit (with a sea gull resting atop her)
- Siwash Rock on the left and Vancouver Island in the distance

Hi there, @SabineP
At the beginning of the 12th century (1117), the monastery of Sainte Livrade sr Lot was occupied by a college of canons which ceded all its property, including the church of Villebramar, to the Benedictine abbey of La-Chaise-Dieu and placed itself under its dependence. This donation is confirmed by Pope Eugene Il. (source: Philippe Tamizey de Larroque : Notice sur le Prieuré de Sainte-Livrade d’après un manuscrit inédit de la bibliothèque impériale, Agen, 1869)

Interesting stuff!

Where did you walk ( locally ) in 2021?​

Same place as in 2020.

To hell and back again.

I hope I have more options in 2022


😇
Looked it up at Wikipedia. Australia is 7,692,024 km2. And you have it all seen 👀?
Imagine living in Belgium with only 30,528km2... That must be a bummer for you.
Even without being able to cross borders, I am still enjoying those 30,528km2.

Hell is located in the Netherlands (Zip/Postal code 3822 SM) if anyone is thinking of repeating Lexicos's route.

Just added a picture of Hell, which doesn't look that unappealing.

@Lexicos : on a personal level I do commiserate with you.Of course we all feel the limitations and all forms of lockdowns. But hell it is certainly not!
But all in all I do believe that you live in a country that handles Covid very well and there are so few cases. That should count for something also.

We are the lucky ones that can take in fresh air and do our daily ( and yes maybe sometimes repetitive ) walks but we are not on some awful machine on an ICU ward.

So, Buen Camino!

Interesting for sure.
I guess all these small churches are closed for the public aside from the Mass times.
How is the situation in that part of France regarding a visit? Will there be a notice where to collect to key for a quick peek? A warden or another local to go to?

I guess there is never a day when we ought to say there was nothing new. I walked along with my shadow from the house to the railway station at the far end of the Quays. I used the facilities and turned around to walk home on the other side. Approx 9km so nothing extraordinary. However, I discovered an institution that I knew nothing of in this city, although I was aware of it in Edinburgh. I only took one photo of the plaque. Another remnant of times past was a detail on both sides of a bridge I pass often. it Looks as if it could withstand another couple of hundred years. Unless it gets fatigued waiting for enough people to be free to cross over it...
I will paste an extract about the Institution, and a couple of photos.

1615633428860.jpeg

Founded in 1818, the Mendicity Institution was established to relieve poverty and hunger in Dublin. After the Act of Union and the Napoleonic Wars, Dublin fell into decline, leaving great poverty in the city. The House of Industry was available at the time for those who were poor, however they often kept the poor in poverty and never relieved them from it. Mendicity’s founders sought to provide an alternative, providing food, training and employment for those who were homeless, poor and marginalised. The institution was mirrored on similar organisations that were previously established in Belfast and Edinburgh. There were some well-known names on the first management committee, including Bewley, Guinness, LaTouche, de Vesci and Orpen. The patron was the Lord Lieutenant, the president was The Lord Mayor, the vice presidents included dukes, judges, archbishops and generals. In later years Daniel O’Connell would become the chairperson of the Institution. Mendicity originally resided at Hawkins Street, then to Copper Alley, and finally to Moira House (Ushers Island) and Island Street, where the charity is still located today.

...How is the situation in that part of France regarding a visit? ...
*Covid and Le Lot-et-Garonne: There is a curfew from 18 00 until 06 00. At the moment, we are free to roam the department and in most other parts of France during the daytime. Read about it here: Le Couvre-feu en Lot-et-Garonne

*The situation, which hasn't altered in Le Lot-et-Garonne since 02/11/2020, can be read about here: Préfet de Lot-et-Garonne

International travel: 'While the borders with the European Union remain open, with some exceptions, the external borders are closed. French foreigners of course remain free to return to the national territory. A negative test of less than 72 hours is mandatory to enter the territory. In addition, in ports and airports rapid tests will be deployed for all arrivals. '

*The circulation of the virus in the region of Nouvelle Aquitaine, of which Le Lot-et-Garonne is one of 12 departments can be read about here: Covid-19 en Aquitaine . There has been a 12 per cent rise in the virus in Le Lot et Garonne this week but it has diminished a little in other departments.

Will there be a notice where to collect to key for a quick peek? A warden or another local to go to?

What I usually do is chat with everyone I meet in the village. Somtimes a key is located, sometimes not.

Other places to ask:
*The parish office or presbytère : list of parishes (paroisse), Lot et Garonne
* Town hall : contact info, Mairies in le Lot et Garonne

Cheers!

Yesterday Peg got her first covid vaccine shot.
It was in a town an hour's drive away. :(
It was on the shore though. :)

We left early to be able to spend some time walking in the nearby wildlife refuge, a fantastic change of pace from our small collection of walks in the woods.

Here's a picture of the Atlantic and a couple from the estuary side.

Ohhh...I can see it in your splendid photo :) I am so envious @Rick of Rick and Peg !! I'm longing to see an owl. Any kind of owl! There is an area here (Boundary Bay) where snowy owls gather every 5 or 6 years in January / early February. They were expected this year but didn't show. And I wasn't a birder last time they were here. Most of my new birder friends see owls regularly. Not me. Guess I'm just not an owl whisperer. Yet. :)

Though I did see a snowy owl at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg last year...

Today is maybe the last walk I take in my neighborhood...all the snow is finally gone.
Here are a few of the fire hydrants painted as "art work" in a local community contest. A Disney theme, Star Wars, a girl, and an old man with the pocket watch...he was a winner. I agree!

Some mud for @Rick of Rick and Peg.
We are starting to get our own now. We've had a nice stretch of weather lately and most of the ice and snow on the trails has gone away but some of the meltwater is mixing with the soil. We primarily walk on trails in the woods though and have not had a thousand years of farmers and farm animals creating the mud masterpieces that you have in Europe.

Our snow melted finally and yesterday we brought up two loungers for the deck where I spent two hours in 65° sunshine sipping two glasses of vino.
Tomorrow we are supposed to get 3-5" of snow.😬

It was so good to walk today in a mild temperature. The days have been cold for quite a long time. The paths in the woods have been impassable due to thick snow cover. Therefore I was surprised to see a freshly walked path going from the road to the woods.

595B53C2-3434-4F02-BFB8-F6886D56505F.jpeg

The path took me to a lean-to (laavu in Finnish), a shelter with sloped roof.

A8B2CF6D-D882-4ACE-94C9-DC33AC62131A.jpeg
There were dry firewoods available in the shelter and a place for campfire in front of the shelter. I returned to the road and came to the lands of a farmhouse with a smoke sauna:

That was the endpoint of my walk today, from there I returned back home.

Pierogi, Yes!
Hi there @kirkie (and anyone else who happens to be reading this). I was fed pierogi i bigos for lunch in Jakubów, a hamlet on a drogi Św. Jakuba in Poland. I don’t know how it was that two art specialists came to be feeding me there, but, my, was I glad. Gaja and Igor were restoring the frescos in the Św. Jakuba church when I walked in off the trail (June, 2015). The first day they made pierogi i bigos, the second day it was frankfurters plus a gift of five blocks of chocolate, the use of a camera and a visit to another church they were restoring.

There were two priests in Jakubów, both named Stanisław and a parishioner named Stanisław as well -all hospitable and passionate about el Camino. On the third day (or was it the fourth?) it was Stanisław-the-1st who cooked up a feast of scrambled eggs, fried zucchinis and red peppers swished down with sludgy black coffee. Stanisław-the-2nd probably fed me too, as did Stanisław-the-3rd who invited me to dine with his gracious family. After which it was time to leave...

(Yes , I know, this is an aside, a tangent, a little obscure and nothing to do with where I walked today but I'd be eating pierogi this very minute if I had the ingredients and remembered how to cook it)

*Fresco of Św. Jakuba on horseback, fighting Indians (1698). Kościół Św. Jakuba, Jakubów, Poland.

Cheers...

ps this has nothing whatsoever to do with Hell. [Edit: not unless one considers the Indians under the hooves of Św. Jakuba's horse (not visible above) and all that they suffered]

Hi Kirkie
Looks like a beautiful place
We just watched a series on Netflix called "true crime"
The scenery looked amazing
If we're watching a foreign language programme/series on the TV, I always look up the place where it's filmed on a map .......oh, and how to get there ...wishful thinking really!

Spring is here - it is 10-12C during the day, and the daffodils are starting to bloom. Today I walked 20 km, including a trip to the garden centre to buy some seeds. It involved a highway overpass which reminded me of elaborate crossings in Spain. In the attachments you can see the view of mid-afternoon traffic 40 km south of Vancouver, and then a picture of a Covid testing centre!

And all at once I saw a throng, a host of golden daffodils... and later, a peaceful walk through the industrial surroundings to the Ferryport. It is St Patrick's Day, so as peaceful as any Sunday. The area is ugly, but then, many an infrastructure supports an exterior beauty... look at what is at the end of the walk!

Just a short trip, coast to countryside to coast again. Along the way, I passed the "birthplace of television**" - an group of shops/workshops where John Logie Baird had a workshop. Seems he wasn't there long

In his autobiography, John Logie Baird refers to Alderman Tree, his landlord in Queens Arcade, as ‘Mr Twigg’, and describes how he required him to vacate after an explosion in his engineering workshop there in July 1924. The two men argued on the pavement outside, Baird further entertaining the small crowd that gathered to watch the altercation by splitting his trousers. He left Hastings altogether soon after.

Would love to see a pic of the inside of Antwerp station. I've heard it is much better than NY Grand Central.

** Other "birthplaces" are available.

I found myself repeating two words during my walk earlier. The first is repetition. In the classroom it is a most useful tool. Not rote, but frequent revisiting till the light shines and the penny drops. In the context of walking during the 5km limit, it describes the options for my walks. There is always something new though and this morning it was a plaque honouring the chief engineer behind the construction of Dublin Port. It is in a tiny but well tended garden, an oasis from the roar of traffic just outside.
The second word is “unclean”. I learned that lepers used to be forced to carry a bell to announce their proximity to other people. Why did the onslaught of runners bring that word into focus???
https://www.nature.com/articles/080315a0 a link to a brief article about the engineer.

I made a fleeting visit to the city of Agen the other day, with just enough time to stride down Boulevard Président Carnot, turn right into Boulevard de la République (click, click, click), flit past La cathédrale St-Caprais (dallying, click) then speed back to the railway station (opposite église St-Foy: 'accueil pèlerins').

Inside the railway station the acoustic is pleasing. In pre-Covid times I would have passed an hour tootling on the flute-a-bec and playing Chopin + Bach on the upright piano. This is now out of the question. Masques are obligatory and the piano is out-of-bounds...

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

Looking forward seeing your pictures and stories behind it.
Live on Long Island (NY), went up to the Hudson Valley for some hikes. Still a little ice/snow on some, but good practice. Old Croton Dam, Walkway over the Hudson, and the Wallkill Rail Trail. It's all only about 2-3 hrs from home, so the whole area is becoming my favorite (except driving through the Bronx...poo).
