Completing a year of Friday Walks reports with a tour of some of our favourite places.
Suddenly, a beautiful day. Sunny and warm and Spring-like. We know this is all wrong for 4th January, but we want to get out and enjoy it. And rather than spend the whole day on one walk, we decide to do several short ones, and see how lots of the Wirral Peninsula’s doing on this splendid day.
Remember this was our ‘Café of the Year’ for 2012. Welcomed warmly back, we’re still on the paper plates though, unlike the regulars.
Before moving on to our second destination.
We look for evidence of Spring.
We move on.
We move again.
Moving again, this time towards New Brighton.
Into New Brighton now.
We go for a walk on the beach between New Brighton and Seacombe. Dark but shiny with Liverpool reflections. But before we do…
And at the end of it all, the Walks Monitoring Committee both agree that the approach has worked. First walk of the year, a good look around on a lovely day. And by finishing in urban locations, we’ve extended the walking day well into darkness. Good.
And this walk completes our aim, from the beginning of 2012, to report on all of our Friday Walks for a year. We’ll still be walking in 2013, as we have done for years now. And no doubt photographs from them will turn up on our Blog from time to time. So look out for them and, meanwhile, enjoy this story of a year of walking.
