A milestone

This week I reached a milestone in my weekly walks

This is week 26 of 2012 and in January I set myself the goal of taking a long walk each week for the whole year.

And this week was no exception.  Walk 26/52 was through the Wyre Forest to Bewdley and through Ribbesford back to the car.  8-9 miles of loveliness apart from the steep hill in the blazing sunshine towards the end.

Loved this sign about 6 feet up a tree

And the best part is that in the 26 weeks I have actually done 30 long walks.

On Sunday I am doing another walk, but Roger says it doesn't count towards my weekly walks.  I am walking 3 miles (5km) around the park in Solihull as part of the Race for Life raising money for Cancer Research.  If you feel you could help by sponsoring me I would be really grateful.  You can find my fundraising page here.


  1. Congratulations on keeping with it. I love that photo of the swans!

  2. Looks lovely - especially the lunch part

  3. I love walking too, Bernice, and how lovely to record your walks in photos. I love the bent foxglove, and the tree with the arrow signs. I wonder if you climbed the tree, like the arrow suggests?!

  4. Hi Bernice, what a beautiful walk - reminded me of the many walks I took as a child when I lived in Wales. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
