Theatregal, your pics above are fabulous - great vistas, great photography!
Sadly my phone (blame the tools) just couldn't work out the lighting yesterday. And the long shots had to be zoomed, so very rough quality... but giving a flavour of a lovely English walk nonetheless - I hope... Kennet and Avon canal in Bath, up to Bathampton Down on the Skyline walk, down to Claverton and the canal again on the other side, pic of the Avon from Dundas Aqueduct (fabulous item), then up again towards Bath, looking back down to Monkton Combe.

I look into the eyes of our ancestors and I see a sweet sorrow, a love for life’s glory but also a sadness for its passing so quickly, long before we can fully appreciate it’s true glory.

“Icons” of sorts, images of loved ones lost, painted on timber. We saw similar images in many a chapel on the Camino Frances.

Thank you @peregrino_tom Your photos are lovely - the views are breathtaking! I have dear camino friends who live in the Cotswolds and have missed visiting and walking with them these last couple of years. Thank you for a lovely English walk today.

500 acres and 700 years old and with a huge lake for wildlife. There is also a play area for children and a deer park, some of which we saw roaming in the quieter parts of the park.
Usually at this time of the year we visit to see the bluebells which cover large areas.
This year however it was rather a sparse show, probably due to the fact that we’ve had no rain for about four weeks

Rick, any chance you went to Andrew’s Bald? One of my favorite short hikes in the Smoky mountains even though it’s down on the way in and up on the way out!
No. When camping closer to that spot (with no phone or internet connectivity even in town, explaining the late reply) the weather was pretty bad with lots of rain and thunderstorms. The Park Service even shut down the access road to it and the Appalachian Trail at the Clingman's Dome lookout tower. If things got worse they might even have had us evacuate the campground.

Peg hurt her knee while descending a lot of rock staircases put in on a steep 2,000 foot elevation gain mountaintop hike that I didn't report on. In the last couple of days we've taken some short hikes, steep but without any of the nasty many short steps or drops you get with the erosion control staircases. She is doing better and looking forward to a hike today. She blames the pandemic. Her gym where she used a stairmaster each day wasn't careful with covid control nor the gym she used as a replacement so she quit them and hasn't had enough hikes with elevation to make up the difference.

Set off from London ar 4am and headed north.
Just before Windemere stopped at the little village of Ings and found a nice path
The intention was to have an out and back walk but it looked so nice that we ended up doing a circular one
Had a few showers so thank heavens for 2 very big umbrellas that I recently found in a Charity shop!
A lovely path and passed a few rivers where himself nearly fell in
An isolated Croft passed on the way back

Finally got to go north but the wind was above my pay grade. 14-15 mph is too much for these old bones, but I persisted. Made it to a town with more beautiful late 19th century homes than their population would suggest. The fields are being planted, some rows of corn are turning green, some cover crops and winter wheat remind me of those waving green fields on the camino. My wikiloc GPS stopped recording for a few miles, but even with my recalculations, I am still about 7-10 kms short of my goal. I’ll make it someday!

Set off up the green fell on a steep path, the intention being to walk the long ridge southwards via Helvellen to Grasmere.
After about an hour a man with two skis, ski boots and headgear on his back passed us!
Heavens, this looks like a bad omen!
It was!
One of the "Dodd" fells was soon spotted covered in snow as we headed to the top to get a better view
Better be safe than sorry as the snow was nearly two feet deep as we slid image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg down to Sticks pass

Helvellyn and the rest of them will have to wait for another day so down we went via a lovely stoney path to the village of Glenridding where the sun was shining as we sat at the cafe after an interesting walk
Two buses later got us back to base

My local trail today on my usual 3 mile walk. Nothing much of interest. On the way back I snapped this Redbud specimen in a neighbor's yard. I think it is my favorite of all the variety of spring blossoms in my area.

The end or the start... Heuston Station at the western end of the quays on the River Liffey. The halfway point on one of my return walking trips. Trains go from here to points south and west/ northwest of the country. The emerging rosebud is on a bush I bought 16 years ago. It becomes a lovely soft yellow and has a delicate perfume.

This is why I often have walked the camino in May. Soon middle of May and after 6-7 months of winter there is still snow in my path up in the hill at home. Still ice on the river too. Nice day today, but fully dressed up in winterclothes.
BUT day light 24 hours, soon midnightsun as well.
Have a nice Sunday peregrinos!

whatever the weather here...hail, rain or snow ..people walk, just can’t help themselves!
tomorrow we hope to do one of your stages, from Keswick to Seatoller.

Bus to Honister pass where there are some impressive slate sculpture and a few people waiting to start the Via Ferrata.
Stopped by the mountain rescue donation box.
This organisation is staffed completely by volunteers.
Had a look into the Bothy hut..basic but a shelter for those in need.
Took a detour to Haystacks over the river. Almost blown off by the gusts of wind on the way back
Some impressive waterfalls seen on the way down the winding stony path and a backwards view from where we'd descended image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

I didn’t walk as far as I had thought because it started to rain. Since I am not training for a Camino I went home
I hear you loud and clear! My daily walks are all the same distance of 3-4 miles. I have no enthusiasm to add in extra mileage for training, as I have no airfare booked yet for an upcoming Camino.

A wonderful walk partly through and then over the beautiful valley of Borrowdale
From Keswick to the Honister pass the path meandered under the peak of cat bells with Derwentwater on the other side

Crossing and passing many rivers today we arrived at Grange village for a long coffee stop as the rain poured down
Then a visit to the tiny church there before the path wound around the hillside just above the Borrowdale valley,reputedly the most beautiful in the Lake District

We had intended to stop at the village of Seatoller but the ongoing path up to the pass was too inviting, so up we went through the lovely scenery
The bus back to Keswick arrived soon after and off we went back to base
17 km and around 7 hours which included the coffee stop, church visit and picnic

I'm rather fortunate to live with the Spessart mountain range on my southern horizon, the Kinzig river valley below my house and the Vogelsberg mountain range to the north. I normally hike in the Spessart, run along the river and mountain bike in the Vogelsberg. Not bad for a guy that grew up surrounded by cornfields. :cool:

Thank you for the warm welcome. The Jakobsweg (James Way) starts at Fulda and goes through Mainz on its way to Trier and then into France. I plan on starting the Jakobsweg in Fulda even though it goes over the hill I live on its way to Trier. Another possibly would be following the Jakobsweg to Maintz and then the Bonifatius Weg back to Fulda once they lift our travel restrictions. Then hopefully Portugal in October.

Edited to add: We live close to the Bonifatius Weg, but have ridden our bikes from near Büdigen to Fulda and back home instead of hiking it.

Good weather today so a walk along the crest of the Helvellyn range from north to south.. Stanah to Grasmere
No snow today. Up to sticks pass and up to Raise and onto Helvellyn at 3113 ft
The path up looked a bit dicey from a distance but fine with zig zags once on it.Some snow still in parts on the path

A nice view of red tarn from the trig point and we had lunch in the open shelter
Mountains for miles and beautiful scenery all around
Passed a fair few Fell runners! image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg
Crossing Nethermost Pike and Dollywagon pike and then down to the beautiful Grisdale tarn for another rest
Up again to a col and the descending path to Grasmere.
Turned off at a seldom used path and down the grassy slope to Grasmere
16 km took us just over 7 hours

Looks like a fabulous trek but, 7 hours? I would need a really good lunch if I were going to be trekking for 7 hours. I hope you had a really good lunch in that open shelter. 😊

...a sumptuous experience walking and exploring the beauty of nature, gazing for hours at the stonework and boiserie of an 11th century Church.

*(6) Église Notre-Dame de Moirax (11th century)

Moirax since it's foundation in the eleventh century has been a halt along the way for pilgrims. It is one day's walk from Agen and on the way to La Romieu (Voie de Rocamadour/GR 652). I got quite carried away taking photos. A few days earlier, having found an old Guide Joanne in the house with a few pages on Moirax, I decided to translate the guide with help from Google and add a few photos as illustration. I located other 19th and early 20th century sources as well as sketches and lithographs and also an online collection of vintage postcards. The presentation is too large to post here, along with these photos so I'll have a go posting again just below....

Cheers
