Need to walk more
I have not been going out much recently, which you can probably tell from the photos I've been posting.

At least I have started walking up to see the elderly friends again. I had still been visiting but I'd been driving to their house due to a combination of very wet weather over the winter and getting distracted by the computer so I didn't have time to walk. I've resolved to do better in future and I did some extra walks into town this week, but I haven't been anywhere interesting for a while.

I am currently working on a plan to try some different walks. One problem with having lived in the same place for so long is that I've been doing the same few local walks over and over again for years. If I drive somewhere different, you always have to return to the car and circular walks are not always possible. However, it occurred to me that if I started using the bus occasionally, I could actually get a bus to place A, walk to place B and then get the bus back. This opens up some more interesting possibilities.

I hope you will be able to get back into it. For the past couple years I've had terrible troubles with my toes, mainly due to bad doctors who made things worse. My right foot is all healed now but then when I started walking my left big toe is very sore so I need surgery on that one. I guess years of hard and long cycling messed up my big toes and the nail is too close to the side. I miss walking so much since it was always the one thing I could do no matter what and it would bring me peace.

I would love a circular route. I just walk along my street here on the river, then back from where I came.

My dog and I both agree that getting out for more walks is the best resolution ever. :)

And to echo everyone else's comments ... the sunset shot in your last post was wonderful!

Thank you for reminding me, there is a senior person I want to get out and visit.
