Spring heralds the walking life

For me, the Spring Equinox opens the 'long-walks' season.
Winter is okay for walks under six miles, but, in winter's cold weather and wind-chills, I find myself yearning for the pub at the end of the walk all rather too prematurely...

However, as it is the Spring Equinox on March 20 - and so starts the time when it's just a joy to be outdoors - I can start planning longer walks.

This post was featured on the City Daily Portal 'Spring Equinox' theme

  1. Wish I could walk six miles again. One or two at the most these days and not too long a wait for a bus at the other end is as much as I can master now.

  2. It ramble through the fields sounds wonderful. A very apt and lovely photograph to display the meaning of the equinox to you.

  3. What a delightful prospect you paint in both image and text, Mark, although I must admit to being more atune with Gerald re the 6 miles. I do adore the expression 'long walks season'.

    Thank you for contributing to the Festival of the Equinox.I appreciate your support.
