Fun Monday: Put on your walking shoes

This week our hostess is Aoj and her assignment is.... I'm going to make it a nice and easy Fun Monday this week. All I want you to do is take me on your favourite walk. In words or pictures. Or both of course! Tell me why it's your favourite and point out things of interest on the way.



My favorite place to walk is in the woods! The view is so beautiful and peaceful. We do not live near the woods, so I don't get to do that very much.
Two of my favorite spots in the woods is the Natchez Trace and Camp Yocona (I was trying to get better pictures of the camp, but I guess the video will have to do. Sorry)
I don't get to go to these places and go hiking much any more either, so I guess I would have to choose my neighborhood. Dan and I walk 2 miles a day when it is pretty.

(The 1st picture is when we 1st leave to start our walk)

(The 2nd picture is when we turn the corner starting up the hill)

(The 3rd picture is of the City Cemetery)(We live right behind the beautiful land mark, but can not see it from our house because of the trees)

(The next 3 pictures is of the beautiful back yard I wrote about in one of my Say Something Saturday. In the story I added a little, but this is a beautiful yard. I just wish I could have got better pictures to give it justice)



(The next 3 pictures are going back toward main street and in front of the cemetery. The sign is just one of many around our little town telling about our history, which I think is just wonderful.)



(The next picture is where I just turned the corner right off main street, going back toward the house)

(The next picture is where I turn back toward my house. It is the road right above our road.)

(The next next 3 pictures are of the home stretch. The End of our little venture)




As you tell by my pictures, even thou I live in the City of Pontotoc, we still have a lot of beautiful trees.

Lovely walk; you have a lot of open spaces to enjoy in your neighbourhood. We have some parks but the really pretty walks are all a car ride away~ worst luck!

WHat amazes me about AMerica is that you have such wide streets with so much room, and lots of trees left everywhere. It beats the heck out of some of our narrow roads and dreary brick cities.

I am amazed at how green everything is - so beautiful. I'd like to see everyone's walks again at the end of summer.

I had to look up the location of Pontotoc, but it looks like it could be one county over from me (I'm in TX). The world is green these days, isn't it? What a very nice walk (and I love the bridge).

Faye said...

My best friend loves to walk through an historic cemetery near her--how interesting. Even though you live in town looks like there's plenty natural beauty in your two miles.

dawn said...

Wow, it was like going for a country walk. How nice to have a walk with your husband everyday when it is nice out.
