185/366 That was the Walking Week

What a cold week it has been. Every day that I have gone out, I have had to make sure that I was wrapped up really warm. It was probably Monday when I went out and during the walk my ears suffered, so I sought out my Balaclava. That has really helped. Then on another morning I was operating my phone camera and I had to do so with my glove off. I could only keep it off for a minute or two. My hand was so cold, it was painful.

A major feature of the morning walks is the #Breakfastclub. As a licensed radio amateur, I make sure that I have my two-way radio with me. Connecting via a special radio on the Isle of Wight (it’s callsign is GB3IW), the way it works give access to hams along quite a wide stretch of the south coast and inland as well. There are of course the regulars on the radio between 0615 and around 0700 Monday – Friday. I stop off and do a weather report (not a Forecast, just a report on the conditions as they are) usually somewhere along the waterfront as I like to announced the tide state. It adds a major part to the walk.

Then of course there is the photography. I have several thousand photos all taken along this area. I suppose I should thin them out a bit, I’m wondering if I could compile 365 pictures for different dates – but not in the same year. The photography is important to me, but I’m not very adventurous – I’m trying to change that and think about different things to photograph. As I promised earlier this week I have an iPhone photography book on the way. I really am going to try and follow that.

Then there is the walking itself. My newly extended circuit gives me about three miles which I know it isn’t a lot, but it is better than nothing. Now, if I stick rigidly to the three miles (actually it’s a bit more than 3.0 miles, more like 3.15, but that 0.15 all helps to make a difference). If I am able to walk every day, by the time I get to Friday that means at least 15 miles completed so over the weekend I only have to do four miles which is fine.

I do have difficulty sometimes in getting up, but usually once I look out the window, and that inspires / drives me to get up and out.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
