Walking by Water

Weymouth Beach

I am trying to fit more exercise in amongst all the crafting – anyone else in the same boat? I needed some motivation to prise me away from the allure of the needles, threads and yarns.

So I started a Facebook Group inviting Facebook friends, wherever they are in the world to join me. If one of us is going for a walk, we post it on Facebook and ask if anyone can join us on that day. It doesn’t have to be at the same time, just the same day. Afterwards we post our photos in our FB group to share our walks.IMG_8358

And it is working! I would never have gone out in the bitter wind and pelting rain if I hadn’t said I would join a friend in Australia and a friend in Yorkshire. Head down into the driving wind, I was imagining walking alongside my friend in Oz under blue skies, and my friend in Yorkshire, skipping through a sprinkling of snow.

Then I went to pick up a friend and we went to Upwey Wishing WellIMG_8368

and had a wander round the delightful watery gardensIMG_8369 before the reward of a delicious Cream TeaIMG_8373

Mmmmmmmm!

Have you been out and about this week?

 

Thursday Walk

Same beach different sky.

I went back this morning to see if there were more purses to be found

Here is my morning’s haul

beach clean

Only 8 purses today.

I was so pleased I found a Cat Shark purse, as this is Little Miss M’s (aged 7) favourite.mermaids purse, cat shark, UK

And this is what happens when your granddaughter tells her Mum that she would ‘fill it with pearls if she found one’
