Wednesday walk 05.06.13

Join me for my Wednesday walk?

So leading on from two weeks ago, I was dropped off far away this morning, and told to find my way home.....actually, I chose a spot that I could challenge myself a little further and put some more steps on my pedometer.

I didn't get any brilliant pictures from my start point and this one is a few miles in at least.  In this picture I have walked around the sticky-out bit....not the one in the front, but the one right on the horizon....the beginning of the walk gave plenty of opportunities to pat yourself on the back, as you could see the walk stretching out behind you.

A lot of the walk is over rough grazing ground, and it isn't unusual to see ponies grazing....I think this pony has spotted Chester.

I am now re-tracing steps from my last big walk, but thought I'd show you a photo of the lighthouse.  This point on the peninsula is wild and windblown in the winter, but is scorchingly hot today.

This is one of the last photos that I took of the ferry steaming past...I actually like the industrial views in our stunning landscapes, but I know I am among the few....

So want to know how far you've walked?

Just short of twelve miles, and look at you hardly broken a sweat!  I fared not too badly as well....although, I'll know the full story tomorrow.

Walking in these beautiful surroundings is wonderful.... although...I have to take a deep breath to go up the steep bits.....


  1. Wow! 12 mi? That is certainly awesome. What lovely open space to take in the world around you.

  2. 'Sticky-out bit'. Is that a nautical term or a geological term? :) Well, done. 12 miles! Whew! You deserve some Peanuts!

  3. Whew! I admire you as that is an accomplishment. We are walking in the evenings now but have nothing quite so pretty to walk along! Well Done!

  4. Hey Faith, great effort and lovely pics. Nice to have coastal views to admire as you go.......

  5. Twelve miles for a walk is pretty good! You must have comfy shoes. The last photo of the beach and headlands is lovely.

  6. Fabulous walk Faith .....I wish I had been there to accompany you. We could have talked and admired those lovely lovely views. Mind you sometimes its great to do these things alone and this I'd call quality quality time!!

    keep well

  7. It's wonderful that you are making the best of this glorious sunshine and your stunning environment to get fresh air and exercise Faith. I too could walk for miles and much prefer this to jogging! Well done on the 12miles my goodness! I look forward to walking with you again xxx Penny

  8. Congratulations Faith on your very long walk and thank you for sharing it with us!...You're so lucky that you live in those beautiful surroundings must be wonderful to live near the sea and walk along the coastline. I love the pic of the lighthouse too and the ponies are gorgeous...Lets keep our fingers crossed for more of this lovely sunshine!

Thanks for stopping by mine.

  10. You do live in the most stunning part of Wales! I used to walk 6 miles in the morning and six miles in the evening, back before the arthritis and the fat-making steroids, feels good doesn't it, a really long walk. I'm sure you'll do fine in the challenge :)
