Good for you moviequeen. Ive always been happy to be a serious walker since I love doing it so much but I’ve never been more thankful to have the ability, freedom and space to walk as I do now. I’m tickled pink to be able to walk everyday. It’s such a simple thing yet such a privilege.Keesha,thanks for sharing your lovely pictures
To see nature like that should motivate anybody to get outside walking
I'm still taking 2-3 walks/day, walking up/downstairs from my apt on 3rd floor every day avoiding the elevator as much as possible
Great pics Keesha! I agree with you about getting out and walking in nature, nothing like it, good for body and soul. Unfortunately a lot of folks don't have access to anything except perhaps a small local park where there might be a lot of other people and kids.Today we went for a 2 hour walk along the river while both dogs got full of burrs. Now it’s taking me the rest of the day to clip them out.
We stopped to look at these guys first.
Aren’t they adorable? They are on the way to our walk.

There are places that still have ice but spring is definite on its way.

I started out walking for exercise, (10,000 steps a day) and it is calming, time to think and reflect, enjoy the sky, meet new people sometimes. I also walk my dogs and walk for enjoyment. Fresh air and sunshine.Any walkers here?
Why do you walk?
Is it for exercise?
Or is it for fun?
Perhaps you walk your dogs or kids to school?
Do you walk daily?
I walk my dogs everyday and it’s by far, my favourite thing to do. We usually walk 3 to 4 kilometres a day. Sometimes it’s more. Sometimes it’s less but no matter where we go, we always have fun.

Is is it possible to get the last picture deleted? I can’t seem to do it.
Thanks Seabreeze.Unfortunately a lot of folks don't have access to anything except perhaps a small local park where there might be a lot of other people and kids.
Never thought of carrying a portable seat. Hmmm.When walking a lot you have to be careful to take care of your feet. If you hurt your toe or something it's painful and takes the fun out of walking.
Good shoes help quite a bit.
I also see people now carrying a light portable seat in case they want to sit down and rest.
Really neat! I bought a dog at the pound one time, and it looked like a German shepherd, brindle colored. Very good dog and loved the color!Today while walking we met a young woman coming back from a bike ride with two bigger dogs. One was a Golden Retriever and the other a brindle Dutch German Shepherd which I’ve never seen before. I asked about him and she said it’s her service dog who helps her train other dogs. She’s a police officer and the GS is her partner. I thought it was pretty cool.
We’ve had a couple of shepherds also. Very loyal working dogs.Really neat! I bought a dog at the pound one time, and it looked like a German shepherd, brindle colored. Very good dog and loved the color!
Very unusual weather for where you are. I suspect there will be more changes to come too.
