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.
