Jo’s Monday Walk Challenge: Up the hill, and back along the beach front.

If we need to buy just a few groceries, we go for a walk up to the village. So, it’s turn right out of the gate, across the road, and then up the steep hill which is very good for the calf muscles and the heart rate.

A great place to sit and read the newspaper.

One more hilly bit, and we're almost there.

Then it’s just a walk through the park and a wave to the monkey on the climbing frame, and we’re back home.

  2. What a wonderful post and images ….. of course the lighthouse my favorite – and the I wouldn’t mind a piece of that colorful and bold art. Thanks for sharing your beautiful neighborhood. If I don’t remember wrongly have you sold your house???!!! It must be very hard to leave this behind, but you live in a fantastic neighborhood in US too.

      • Okay, that is great that you will be going back … looking at your images I would have very difficult to leave, but on the other hand would I missed all 4 seasons that we have. So you’re a busy lady those days .. with packing.
        To move is one of the worst things … I know. And unpack is even worst.

  3. Awesome capture of the waves. The lighthouse rules are strict. But I do like those art paintings. I need a chill day like them. Ima do that some time soon. Thanks! πŸ˜€

  4. Oh what a beautiful place Sylvia. Your photos capture it so wonderfully, my favourite is the one of the lighthouse, just gorgeous. I’m still fascinated that you find monkeys like that, out and about! Can you imagine if one appeared in a park in England, haha!! Thanks for this walk, wonderful to visit other part of the world like this πŸ˜€ xx

  5. I enjoyed the lovely walk, Sylvia. there’s so much out there that are oftentimes ignored. thanks for paying attention to details and sharing. it’s really a beautiful world! πŸ™‚

  6. Gosh you live in a wonderful place, though the security fencing is a bit of a turn-off 😦 but what a lovely walk to the shopping mall (I have spent a fair bit of money in those African shops) and how cool to see the monkey in the playground. Oh, you will miss Africa. But I guess with family still living there you will be back.

  7. enjoyed the walk – and the thumbnails were super fun – but the paths and water – enjoyed this – and ending with the monkey and blue side – just fun!!!!!!

  8. This is going to be another of those posts full of memories for you, isn’t it, Ad?
    My favourite shot is ‘grumpy face rock’- it’s superb! The variety on that beach is amazing. The ladies in the black garb made me smile, and the guy with the hats too.
    Thank you so much for sharing your world with me. I appreciate it πŸ™‚

  9. I feel the warm, or is that hot, sun as we walk. I’m not sure it gets hot enough here for butter to melt! I want to go down to the pier next time. Can we? Lovely walk and glad you did not have a fall like Jo.

  10. What a lovely neighbour hood to walk through each day…..the promenade looks perfect for a bare foot evening stroll as the waves wash against the rocks…..delightful πŸ™‚

  11. You definitely have your priorities straight. Nothing like a beach walk ( up the hill) to start the week and get groceries at the same time. This looks like such a family friendly area. πŸ™‚ Happy Monday.
