In an effort to get on top of my health, I’ve been trying to walk more. Every day if I can. It’s something I’ve tried in the past, but it never really stuck.
Where were used to live… well, it wasn’t the most pleasant place for a walk. It was safe enough, but traffic made it quite noisy, and it was mostly just bland suburbia. Not much to look at.
Now this town is small, only about 2,500 people, but it is old (you can read a little history here), and especially being new, there is lots to look at and discover.
To help keep me motivated, I’m staring my own Walk-about Wednesday. Every day I’ll post a picture or two, or something interesting from my weekly walks.
If this is something you’d like to do… feel free to add Walk-about Wednesday to your blog! I’d love to discover the places you like to walk too!
So without further ado….
The picture doesn’t do it justice, but around the corner from us, a house has very nice big pond. I’ve driven by a dozen times, but never noticed the pond. It wasn’t untilI was going by on two feet that I heard the water from their little bucket waterfall. (almost in the centre of the pic beside the goose)
Dave and I really want to put in a pond here -unfortunately, it’s not high on our priority list, but it’s something to dream about one day.
That same house had a cat in their garden made from old scrap. It took me a moment to realize the body was an old fan! I just love scrap art!
And this always makes me giggle when I see it. One whole block has brand new sidewalk (within the last year or two) and on one slap, there’s these wee foot prints, embedded for all time! They are too big to be a squirrel, so I’m guessing probably a raccoon.
That was fun! Thanks for checking them out. I can’t wait to see what next week’s walks bring!
And this wasn’t found on walk, but in my own back yard!
I have snow drops!!! Well… snow drop.. .there’s just one. But I suspect I’ll be finding more in the next week or so!
